NTT Ltd. | September 29, 2022
NTT Ltd., a leading global IT infrastructure and services company, today announced its full-stack Net-Zero Action offering at Mobile World Congress 2022 (MWC) in Las Vegas, Nevada. This climate-focused solution leverages NTT’s vast infrastructure and services capabilities to help clients reduce the environmental impact of business activities. Climate initiatives are top of mind as organizations work to increase sustainability initiatives that will help them achieve net-zero goals and make data-driven decisions to reduce their carbon footprint. This innovative offering will help customers achieve better economic performance through enhanced climate action including measuring, monitoring, and reporting impact, proactively working to limit climate incidents, and improving response times when detecting issues.
“We are very excited to launch the industry’s first full-stack Sustainability as a Service offering at a time when industries are looking for effective ways to make good on their commitments to achieving net-zero goals. “Today’s news reinforces NTT’s commitment to helping organizations proactively limit climate incidents, respond in real-time with automated resolutions, and accurately measure their environmental impact in communications with regulators, employees and other stakeholders.”
Devin Yaung, Group Senior Vice President of Enterprise IoT Products and Services at NTT Ltd
Organizations are increasingly being held accountable for achieving net-zero goals to meet the expectations of their stakeholders, including clients, shareholders, institutional investors, employees, business partners, and communities. In a recent survey, 58% of Fortune 500 companies aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and achieve net-zero goals by 2050 or sooner. Those that commit to these goals are often faced with the additional challenges of being under-resourced and underfunded or are unable to consistently capture accurate data fit for purpose. Additionally, McKinsey has estimated that it will take $9.2 trillion of aggregated annual capital expense to achieve 2050 goals.
In response to this challenge, NTT has announced the industry’s first full-stack Sustainability as a Service architecture combining extensible technologies leveraging NTT’s solution building blocks including IoT, Private 5G, Edge Compute, NTT Smart Solutions Platform, Digital Twins and Machine Learning products. The full-stack offering along with its consulting service is designed to be customized depending on net-zero goals, the organization and the supply chain’s carbon-producing footprint. It will help organizations build a comprehensive picture of the status of climate goals by streamlining the monitoring, measurement, and reporting of emissions. It will also speed up incident response times to get to the root cause of an issue. All of this is applicable to industries such as manufacturing, transportation and logistics, and healthcare providers.
The full-stack sustainability offering includes:
Remote Environmental Monitoring: Using NTT’s IoT for sustainability solution, this technology uses sensors to identify the presence of pollutants in the air, water, and plants across the globe, in real-time. In manufacturing, this can assist with measuring processes and products that consume energy. In the transportation industry, this can monitor greenhouse gas emissions more effectively for fleet management.
Digital Twin and Smart Solution: This solution uses a combination of NTT Smart Solutions and Digital Twin capabilities which act as the “brain” of the system. This will help organizations to predict issues with the built-in Machine Learning technology, respond to incidents faster with context from Digital Twin and measure the carbon footprint at a granular, actionable level, in real-time.
Automation and Orchestration: Leveraging the existing A&O, the Digital Twin automates problem resolution where possible or creates a ticket for support personnel to investigate and address the issue and thus limit greenhouse impact.
“As a global leader in tire and rubber manufacturing, we believe that growth, innovation and sustainability go hand in hand,” said Nizar Trigui, chief technology officer and group president, Bridgestone America. “Having real-time visibility into carbon footprint and progress towards net-zero ambitions is an essential foundation of our growth and innovation agenda.”
As a premier Industry City 5G Showcase Sponsor at MWC, NTT is excited to bring to life cutting-edge technologies that reimagine the possibilities of a connected future. To learn more about NTT’s Edge Compute, Private 5G and IoT capabilities, visit their exhibit at Booth # W1 410, September 28-30; or attend the panel, Green Networks: Countdown to Zero, where Devin Yaung will discuss how organizations are transforming processes, using sustainable data centers, virtualization, AI, intelligent optimization and cloud to enable green networks.

Symbio | November 08, 2022
Industry-leading communications software provider Symbio Holdings, today announced the launch of Carrier Infrastructure as a Service (CIaaS) – a unified carrier-grade product suite designed to simplify the wholesale customer experience.
Symbio's CIaaS offering makes it easier for communications service providers of all sizes to launch and scale cloud collaboration services in new markets, utilising Symbio's proprietary cloud-based technology stack.
CIaaS provides the necessary physical infrastructure through Symbio's extensive voice network, together with the virtual components needed to deliver high-quality, cost-effective communications services in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and beyond.
"The wholesale voice market is entering a new and complex era, faced with regulatory and compliance challenges that make it difficult for service providers to economically launch and scale cloud communications solutions.
Giorgio Mihaila, CEO of Symbio's Connect division
"With our Carrier Infrastructure as a Service offering, we are making it simpler and more cost-effective than ever for service providers to scale their own solutions, by removing barriers to entry into new markets so they can focus on what matters most – the customer experience.
"We've spent several years migrating core carrier functions to the cloud to be able to offer our proprietary technology stack that can move at scale, anywhere.
"Now, wholesale service providers can offer end-users all the same benefits as a tier-1 supplier, without needing to invest in their own infrastructure or go through the time-consuming process of securing a carrier license when entering new markets," he said.
Backed by 20-years of innovation and experience
Leveraging Symbio's voice network, CIaaS enables domestic service providers to access the same capabilities as leading carriers without the need for infrastructure investments to deliver reliable, quality voice communications.
In addition, CIaaS is backed by carrier-grade customer support and expertise through in-country customer service teams working locally, to support global customers for international call routing and other services. With this capability, Symbio can help service providers navigate and understand individual country licensing and regulatory challenges.
"Symbio's Carrier Infrastructure as a Service offering is designed to provide immediate benefits, with continuous updates to the product suite. As new capabilities and innovations emerge customers will automatically receive these, enabling this service to be the central marketplace for all wholesale communications needs," concluded Mr Mihaila.
Symbio is a software company changing the way the world communicates.
Symbio brings together everything needed to deploy and manage modern communication services. The Symbio platform delivers the full communication stack, from carrier infrastructure to enterprise collaboration, across multiple Asia-Pacific regions.
