NTT DOCOMO, INC. announced that it will exhibit at MWC Barcelona 2024, the world’s largest mobile exhibition, in Barcelona, Spain from February 26 to 29. DOCOMO’s booth will showcase exhibits of its technological advancement since last year and presentations focused on the core themes of 6G, open radio access networks (Open RAN) and extended reality (XR), aiming to advance international standardization and foster global business opportunities with the implementation of next-generation communication technologies.
For 6G, there will be interactive demonstrations of FEEL TECH,® an innovative technology that revolutionizes the sharing of sensory information between people DOCOMO’s Human Augmentation Platform connected to a 6G network. This pioneering technology aims to facilitate clear transmission of sensory information that is often difficult to communicate verbally, paving the way for a new communication culture and providing added value for an enhanced quality of life.
The booth will also provide a glimpse of the coming world of 6G and advanced wireless technologies that DOCOMO is now developing, such as a non-terrestrial network (NTN) incorporating high-altitude platform stations (HAPS), which are expected to facilitate the broad extension of communication services beyond the reach of conventional terrestrial network areas, from remote seas to low-orbit space.
For Open RAN, in addition to presenting the OREX®-branded services (OREX Packages), DOCOMO will introduce the latest initiatives with diverse global vendors and operators since the launch of the OREX to make Open RAN a reality.
For XR, DOCOMO will showcase the first concept model of XR glasses from NTT QONOQ Devices, INC., which is scheduled for release around mid-2024, along with images of utilization.
