Overview of JADAC, Japan Data Communications Association


We are engaged in multiple activities which enforce the healthy development of Data Communications in Japan.

The telecommunications world is developing day by day after the invention of its technologies and services in the middle of 19th century; the speed of evolution is even accelerating with the birth of the Internet.

In such societies, maintenance and improvement of the telecommunications network are one of the most critical agendas, not only for the telecommunications carriers but also for the economy and the society of Japan.

Japan Data Communications Association was established in Dec. 1973 by several user associations, computer vendors and telecommunications carriers in Japan for the sake of healthy development of Data Communications and the contribution to our economy and society as the result of the activities.

We have been working as the executing entity for the two national examinations, "Qualification Examination for Chief Telecommunications Engineers" and "Qualification Examination for Installation Technicians" since 1985. After that our activities have been in the two main fields: "Securities of Information" and "Human Development in the Telecommunications Industries."
