Rakuten Mobile Launches New Research And Innovation Team

, Pierre Imai, Disruption

After successfully disrupting the MVNO market, Rakuten Mobile is going to shake up the MNO business as the fourth major carrier in Japan from October 2019. With the launch of the first end-to-end fully-virtualized cloud-native mobile phone network, Rakuten Mobile aims to be one of – if not the – technologically most advanced telecommunication providers in the world. We believe that the demands of our customers for more flexible, reliable, and powerful services at low cost can only be met by reducing the burden that the network’s operation places on our engineers’ shoulders.
