The WIDE Project (Widely Integrated Distributed Environment), founded 30 years ago,[1] is an Internet project in Japan. It runs a major backbone of the Japanese Internet and used to run the .jp TLD. WIDE aims to integrate academia and industry in a single group that overcomes lines between organizations as an autonomous force utilizing new technologies for a better society. This mission has guided the actions of the project for two decades, and will continue to be a cornerstone of its activities.[2]

The president is Jun Murai.

It has operated the M root nameserver since 1997.[3]

It has been a core proponent of IPv6 research, development and deployment in Japan.[4]

The project was started as the WIDE Research Group in 1985.[5]

The WIDE project also conducted a study about the instability of the intra-domain routing which was presented on the Routing Workgroup of the RIPE-49 meeting in 2004[6]
