Research & Development

At Fujitsu, we’re proud to be a global corporate innovator. We became a leader in information technology, computing, electronics and telecommunications, through inventiveness and ingenuity.

We innovate and develop real-world technology in a broad range of industries. Worldwide, we’re consistently among the top ten corporations, in terms of the number of successful original patent filings, each year. Our visionary scientists continually work to create new and improved technologies in every area where we do business.

Our researchers frequently collaborate with leading research and education institutions on cutting-edge communications technologies. For example, we worked with Indiana University on breakthrough research about the effects that Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD) can have on specific wavelengths traveling at 40 Gbps or more. This collaboration experience between two leading research entities was facilitated by active involvement with Internet2.

“Our collaboration with Fujitsu has allowed us to interact with the scientists from one of the leading research entities in optical networking. Together, using advanced technology from Fujitsu, we were able to discover several optical characteristics that will have a profound implication on high speed networking across the globe. Our experience continues to be extremely positive, and we look forward to future research projects with Fujitsu.” - Brad Wheeler, vice president for information technology and CIO at Indiana University
