DoCoMo Demonstrates LTE System for 1st Time

NTT DoCoMo Inc is demonstrating a system supporting the LTE (long term evolution) wireless specification, which it calls "Super3G," at Wireless Japan 2008, which runs from July 22 to 24, 2008, at Tokyo Big Sight.

"We didn't transmit radio waves when we demonstrated the system before at another exhibition in Japan," DoCoMo said. "This is the first demonstration of radio communications using a licensed wireless station for the test."

The demonstrated system is equipped with an LTE 4 x 4 MIMO. The mobile station uses an entire truck. The exhibit was proving popular, with people lining up for several meters and waiting for 30 minutes to view the inside of the bus, DoCoMo said.
