Since Dr. Inoue joined NTT Laboratories in 1973, he has played key roles in R&D and standardization in the area of telecommunications and the Internet for more than three decades. Dr. Inoue's continuous contribution has helped advance today's multi-technologies network infrastructures.

Dr. Inoue engaged in the development of digital network equipment and transmission systems in his early days at NTT Laboratories. For over a decade from the early 1980s to the early 1990s, he was significantly involved in standardization activities at ITU-T (formerly CCITT). Dr. Inoue first focused on the standardization of narrowband integrated services digital network (ISDN). Dr. Inoue then extended his standardization activities to broadband ISDN, synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH) and Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) transport network architecture. Dr. Inoue has also fostered a great number of researchers and engineers, from Japan and abroad, including a few who have later become ITU-T Study Group Chairpersons.

In response to changing market environment and technological trends, Dr. Inoue actively participated not only in ITU-T but also in private entities where a number of key standards were developed. In TINA-C (Telecommunication Information Networking Architecture Consortium), he served as the Technical Committee Chair for the standardization of the open software environment embedded in novel network architectures.

Dr. Inoue's achievements in terms of standardization together with his academic contributions brought about innovations in the field of telecommunications and the Internet. In recognition of his achievements, Dr. Inoue was conferred Fellow by both the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers (IEICE) of Japan in 2002. Dr. Inoue is honorary professor and visiting professor at several universities in Japan and abroad.

With highly successful career in standardization, Dr. Inoue concentrated on the management and strategic planning of standardization at NTT. Since 2002, he has been supervising NTT Laboratories with more than 2,500 research engineers and staff, where he oversees R&D strategy, standardization, and intellectual property rights policy. Dr. Inoue's successful R&D promotion had resulted in Japan's highest penetration of broadband access using optical fibers in the world as well as a number of key technologies, such as SDH, commonly used in today's network infrastructures of the Internet.

Dr. Inoue has been involved in several activities toward the development of Japan's national ICT policy. Currently, Dr. Inoue participates in a project team under the Council for Science and Technology Policy, advisory council of Prime Minister of Japan, and is also a member of Information and Communications Council of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communication.
