●Mobile World Congress 2016

We participated in Mobile World Congress 2016, one of the world’s largest trade shows for mobile communications technology, which was held in February 2016 in Barcelona, Spain. Services and technologies related to Internet of Things (IoT) attracted significant interest at the event, and Anritsu showcased its technologies centered on IoT, 5G and LTE-A.

The event attracted 101,000 visitors from 204 countries, far more than the 93,000 visitors from 200 countries who came in 2015. This year’s theme was “Mobile is Everything,” and the event featured solutions related to IoT and virtual reality. Anritsu divided its booth into five sections to introduce the latest solutions for IoT, 5G, LTE-A, Service Assurance and I&M (installation and maintenance).

We will continue contributing to the development of mobile broadband services by remaining the first to provide the most advanced technologies.

NGOs and NPOs

The Anritsu Group continues to support children from the Koriyama and Fukushima area of Fukushima Prefecture in cooperation with the public interest incorporated association Save the Children Japan. In fiscal 2015, we organized a program for children with disabilities or who have little access to support, such as those who attend alternative schools or use maternal and child care facilities. We offered the children an opportunity to experience nature and play outdoors. A total of 14 employees participated as volunteers in 8 programs from July to November. Their assistance enabled the children to play freely in places such as the Moniwa Play Park adventure playground surrounded by greenery in the outskirts of Fukushima City.

The program aims to address the declining frequency of children’s outdoor play since the Great East Japan Earthquake, particularly in Fukushima Prefecture, by providing a time and place for them to enjoy the normal childhood experience of being out in a natural environment with comparatively low radiation levels.

We will continue to contribute to society through collaborations with international NGOs and NPOs.

Employees

The increasing globalization of our businesses and diversification of work styles have raised the importance of respecting human rights and promoting diversity. Moreover, from the perspectives of recruiting human resources and revitalizing internal communications, we are emphasizing systems and workplace environments that allow diverse groups of personnel to work in comfort.

As part of these efforts, the Anritsu Group conducted an employee satisfaction survey in the U.S., the Asia-Pacific region and Japan. The survey gathered employee responses on issues such as how well they understood the direction of the company, its efforts in various programs, workplace communication, and their general sense of fulfillment at work. The results were reported to each division and incorporated into daily operations.

●Photo Exhibition of the Great East Japan Earthquake

Many people continue to face hardships caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake. The Anritsu Group also felt the impact of the disaster through damage to Tohoku Anritsu Co., Ltd. and the Koriyama Business Office of Anritsu Corporation. Five years later, in March 2016, we held a photo exhibition at the Global Headquarters Building to look back on those days and prevent the memories from fading away. All visitors to the company were welcomed to view the exhibition.

The exhibition was composed of photographs taken by Masayoshi Tokita, a photojournalist and former Anritsu employee, and in-house records compiled for the company newsletter. About 30 photographs of each region in Tohoku were on display, either conveying the extent of the damage and tragedy of the disaster seeking repose for the victims’ souls. We also exhibited actual equipment that had been used outside the company for reconstruction and support activities.
