TOKYO -- Nokia Siemens Networks and Panasonic Mobile Communications Co. Ltd., a Panasonic group company, have been selected by NTT DOCOMO to develop next generation mobile broadband network architecture for LTE-A (long term evolution-advanced). As part of a multi-year agreement, the two companies will provide NTT DOCOMO with high-capacity base stations optimized for the requirements of LTE-A. These base stations will ensure initial equipment capacity of 300 Mbps (megabits per second) in the network and enable new cloud-based architecture and services. In addition, the two vendors will provide Remote Radio Head (RRH) to roll out small cells to enhance the coverage and capacity of the LTE-A network. "Nokia Siemens Networks, in collaboration with Panasonic Mobile Communications, is committed to providing a next- generation mobile broadband network to NTT DOCOMO,” said JP Takala, head of Japan Region, Nokia Siemens Networks. “As the world’s specialist in mobile broadband, our focus on innovation and quality will enable NTT DOCOMO to build LTE-A network. With this, NTT DOCOMO will be able to address ever-increasing subscriber needs for higher bandwidth and better quality of services in Japan, one of the most advanced mobile markets in the world.”Nokia Siemens Networks
