We have a growing number of Internet service orders from business users.

Demand for IoT/M2M (machine-to-machine) communication is rapidly rising and we see stable growth in Internet connection service to be utilized in variety of fields, such as POS system, surveillance camera, digital signage, security system, Wi-Fi, and virtual private network.

We provide a machine-to-machine Internet connection service to small businesses, such as our cloud-based surveillance camera system with a customer-dedicated network line.

We strongly feel the necessity of expanding and applying our conventional ISP business into a new type of market demands.

The conventional Internet connection that has been utilized for web browsing is now expanding its ability into the field of IoT/M2M(Machine-to-Machine) communications. This trend is highly noticeable in working environment. The demand for high quality, high capacity of network communication is rising, also with more individuals using for video viewing. There is no question that the network traffic continues to be on the rise.

With this prospect in mind, in 2017, we have established the IPv6 network for the first time among ISPs in Japan. This will achieve better communication quality and cost stability even in the high traffic hours, generating higher margin of profit in a long-term.

Our profit model restructuring launched in 2016, aims the double objective of expanding sales and limiting cost in the time of high network traffic.
