Japan’s NTT DoCoMo has actually partnered with Nokia Networks to check out and harness the capacity of Nokia Networks mmWave innovation in the 70 GHz spectrum band.In a joint indoor 5G trial, the 2 business accomplished downlink speeds of more than 2 Gbps utilizing greater frequencies in the 70 GHz band.
This development highlights the operator’s objective to render a 5G network in 2020 and beyond. DoCoMo and Nokia Networks are likewise preparing to perform a 70 GHz outside trial later on this year. Seizo Onoe, CTO, NTT DoCoMo, stated :
“Utilizing greater frequency bands consisting of millimeter wave is crucial to provide incredibly high efficiency in 5G.
Our team believe that high-frequency spectrum will be utilized not simply for little cells as a way to match the existing network, however likewise for developing strong location protection through coordination with existing lower frequency bands. The success of this indoor trial with Nokia Networks utilizing the 70GHz band marks a vital advance in our 5G vision for 2020.”
