- Presentation Abstract
The fifth-generation mobile communications 5G is a next generation system having features such as enhanced mobile broadband, massive machine type communications, and ultra-reliable low-latency communications, which further developed the existing system. We DOCOMO are accelerating development toward actualization of 5G commercial system.
On the other hand, 5G is currently becoming the hot topics of not only the mobile communication field but also the whole industry and academia using ICT. 5G system trials are ongoing for many kinds of use cases in Japan and other countries, and those are unexampled large scale trials through former generations of mobile communication systems. This situation can be understood as proof of very high expectation for 5G system by potential customers and players of very widely areas.
This talk will describe DOCOMO’s view on the key technologies of 5G system, various new applications and services expected to be provided by 5G. In addition, the talk will introduce DOCOMO’s latest activities to co-create 5G services, including field experiments and system trials in cooperation with a wide range of vertical industries.
