FY2022 Demonstration Test Using Mobile SINET

A next demonstration test incorporating 5G and other new services

The National Institute of Informatics (NII) operates the Science Information NETwork, SINET, as scientific information infrastructure for universities and other institutions across Japan.
To support a wide range of research activities, we constructed Wide Area Data Collection Infrastructure that employed mobile networks for connection to SINET. We conducted the first round of demonstration testing from FY2018 to FY2019, followed by a second round from FY2020 to FY2021.

In FY2022, the Wide Area Data Collection Infrastructure was renamed Mobile SINET. NII will start a next demonstration test incorporating 5G and other new services in FY2022.
