DoCoMo deploys bonsai base stations

22 Sep 2003

Japan’s leading wireless services provider NTT DoCoMo has said it is developing micro base stations for its FOMA network that are up to 1/30th the size of a conventional base station. DoCoMo’s 3G network will be available to 96% of the population by the end of the month: the micro base stations will enable it to reduce rollout costs and circumvent problems associated with installing larger units in some areas.
