Vertically Integrated Center for Technologies of Optical Routing toward Ideal Energy Savings

VICTORIES is developing new network technologies with which we can share chunks of data such as ultra-high definition videos over networks without an energy crunch. Thus, providing technologies enabling tele-presence, tele-conferencing, remote medicine, remote collaboration, tele-educationetc., VICTORIES will contribute to the realization of a low emission society with a sustainable growth.
