NTT Com succeeds in trial sharing of production-line data via prototype platform

KUALA LUMPUR, April 8 -- NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) has announced succeeding in a trial sharing of production-line data related to CO2 emissions via a prototype platform, enabling interconnection via IDS standards which support data sovereignty in GAIA-X data ecosystem.

The trial data, which normally would not be available for sharing due to its high confidentiality even though partners engaged in actual business would need to perform CO2 emissions calculations, was transmitted securely to designated sites in Germany and Japan from Switzerland Innovation Park Biel/Bienne in Switzerland.

GAIA-X is an initiative announced by the German and French governments in October 2019 to support data sharing via infrastructure that ensures data protection, transparency, reliability and interoperability to protect the rights of European companies, governments, institutions and citizens.

The ICT solutions and international communications business within the NTT Group, NTT Com conducted the trial under the assumption that such data will be used by companies engaged in actual business to review their manufacturing methods to achieve greater decarbonisation.

The prototype platform, which enables interconnection with IDS Connectors, is also equipped with DATA Trust®, a mechanism for the secure sharing of highly confidential data, according to a statement.

The trial involved the sharing of electricity-consumption data that business partners typically would use to calculate CO2 emissions generated during the manufacturing of specific products. 

NTT Com plans to exhibit the trial results at the joint booth of IDSA and RRI during the Hannover Messe industrial fair in Germany from April 12 to 16.

Going forward, the company will build a test environment in Japan to connect with GAIA-X and start interoperability tests with multiple partner companies worldwide this summer.

If all goes well, NTT Com hopes to launch an official platform within the fiscal year, ending March 2022.

In the future, it is expected that companies will be required to use GAIA-X to send and receive highly confidential data to and from business partners in European countries.
