(2) TAHI project ; IPv6 test and evaluation specification and tools
(3) USAGI project ; IPv6 protocol stack for Linux
Regarding the research/development/deployment for the IPv6, he has been very tightly and closely working with Prof. Jun Murai, who has been a political and technical advisor for the Japanese cabinet for more than 20 years. He is an executive director of IPv6 promotion council, which is cross ministry and cross industry council to promote the IPv6 technology. As the activities of IPv6 promotion council, he has established the following working groups, that are aiming to explore and to deploy the IPv6 as the professional and business operation.
Since 2003, he has started the introduction of TCP/IP and Internet Framework into the facility system, which is now identified as SmartGrid, Smart Building, Smart Campus or Smart City. He successfully standardized the TCP/IP based architectural framework as IEEE1888 in IEEE, and proposing to NIST SGIP CoS (Catalogue of Standard) in US and to ISO/IEC JTC1 SC6.
