19 Dec 2017

Japan’s leading mobile operator by subscribers, NTT DOCOMO, and China’s Huawei have reported the successful completion of a field trial of 5G mobile technology using the 39GHz Millimeter Wave (mmWave) band. In the trials, which were carried out in the commercial district of Yokahama, the pair reported achieving peak download data speeds of over 2Gbps on a test vehicle with user equipment (UE) equivalent to a mobile phone, while driving at speeds over 20km per hour.

‘Long-distance transmission over 39GHz mmWave will enable 5G network deployments in a large scale. It opens up the new stage of the 39GHz mmWave technology and will deliver an ultra-fast experience with 5G data speed, said Takehiro Nakamura, Vice President and Managing Director of 5G Laboratory at NTT DOCOMO.
