T_Visions First Public Demo at ITU-Kyoto, Oct. 94

In 1994, government representatives of the 130 member states of the International Telecommunications Union met in the Japanese city of Kyoto - to consider future strategies and perspectives for telecommunication, and to present the latest developments. At the invitation of the japanese Ministry of Post and Telecommunications, applications for the future broadband networks, such as B-ISDN, were demonstrated in an accompanying exhibition. This exhibition featured the opening of the Data Highway between Germany and Japan - with German Telekom, NTT and KDD combining their Broadband networks over a common ATM connection. T_Vision was publicly presented for the first time as part of the virtual Ribbon Cutting ceremony for the new Infobahn.
