DoCoMo will run the experiment in parallel with each vendor , are divided into several sections . Nokia handles testing technology and millimeter wave beam forming at 70 GHz frequency spectrum .
Samsung, which had previously been held 5G 1 Gbps trials in South Korea , will handle experimental technology in 28 GHz spectrum . While Ericsson outdoor testing at a frequency of 15 GHz with the new antenna technology .
NEC and Fujitsu join in trials at frequencies between 3-6 GHz . The Alcatel – Lucent will use the frequency spectrum which is already there , under 3 GHz for mobile broadband technologies and Machine – to- Machine .
In addition to Japan , the company SK Telecom of South Korea earlier this year have also been announced will invest 1.5 billion U.S. dollars for the implementation of 5G networks in 2020 .
