Tokyo 2020’s vision of creating a truly cohesive society that affirms all forms of diversity aligns with the aims of NTT, which uses ICT to connect people with one another and Japan with the world. To help bring about a cohesive society, NTT will play its part in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics and contribute to creating a legacy for posterity.
In the past, NTT provided a variety of telecommunications services for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, the 1972 Sapporo Winter Olympics, and the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics and Paralympics. With the rapid evolution of ICT, the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics require telecommunications convenience to be accompanied by safety more than ever before. In addition to helping make the Games’ telecommunications safe, secure, and welcoming, NTT is taking advantage of the Group’s telecommunications related security technologies and its telecommunications service infrastructure inside and outside Japan, endeavoring to act as a “Value Partner” in providing an unprecedented level of hospitality to the Tokyo 2020 and other relevant organizations, as well as competitors and guests from Japan and overseas.
