NTT DOCOMO to Conduct 5G Experimental Trials

NTT DOCOMO announced plans to conduct experimental trials of emerging 5G technologies with leading vendors, including Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Fujitsu, NEC, Nokia and Samsung.

The research program will look at the potential of 5G mobile technologies to exploit frequency bands above 6GHz and realize very high system capacity per unit area, and new radio technologies to support diverse types of applications including machine-to-machine (M2M) services. DOCOMO also expects to collaborate with other companies in its effort to test a wide range of 5G mobile technologies.

DOCOMO is looking for 5G systems to be ready for commercial deployment in 2020. The new system is expected to enable ultra-high-speed data transmissions at more than 10 Gbps.

"5G studies are starting to gain real momentum as we point toward 2020," said Seizo Onoe, Executive Vice President and Chief Technical Officer at DOCOMO. "I am delighted that we will collaborate on 5G experimental trials with multiple global vendors from this early stage."
DOCOMO will begin indoor trials at the DOCOMO R&D Center in Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture this year, to be followed by outdoor field trials planned for next year. Key findings and achievements will be shared with research institutes and at international conferences to contribute to 5G standardization, which is expected to start from 2016. Key findings also will be utilized for research aimed at incubating future advanced technologies."
