[Exhibit 1] DoRACOON Service Overview
1. Background and Purpose
As a member of the NTT West Corporation Group, NTT Media Supply has been mainly working to resolve the issues of local organizations and companies. In September 2012, NTT Media Supply began providing public Wi-Fi services for store and facility owners "DoSPOT", and in June 2013, it began providing "DoSPOT STREET" to local governments and small and medium-sized enterprises.
On considering more in-depth resolution for the issues using relations with the customers, knowledge and know-how obtained from the Wi-Fi services, we have received various requests for the development of stable broadband environments and the provision of infrastructure in areas and facilities where it is difficult to lay optical lines and we have started discussions for the provision of mobile SIM broadband service for business using cloud SIM technology "DoRACOON" as a new service and are proceeding with preparations for its commercialization.
Under this background, NTT Media Supply will commence a business trial from June 8 with the aim of "Creation of new business models utilizing DoRACOON".
In addition, because DoRACOON is a service that helps companies that are affected by the recent new coronavirus and that need to prepare a remote work environment urgently, we will start providing the service to some users in advance.
