NTT DOCOMO, Nokia Networks Demonstrate High-speed Data Transmission in 5G


NTT DOCOMO has partnered with Nokia Networks to explore the potential of Nokia Networks mmWave technology in the 70 GHz spectrum band. In a joint indoor 5G trial, the two companies achieved downlink speeds of more than 2 Gbps using higher frequencies in the 70 GHz band. 

The demonstration underlines DOCOMO’s strong intention to launch 5G in 2020. DOCOMO and Nokia Networks are also planning to conduct a 70 GHz outdoor trial later this year.

Proof of Concept system was demonstrated using an access point and equipment with 1 GHz bandwidth in a laboratory environment. 5G PHY and MAC software enabled beam tracking for pedestrian mobility and more than 2 Gbps throughput. Operator plans to present the results at DOCOMO booth at MWC 2015.
