NEC Contributes to High-Definition Video Transmission Test Utilizing 5G Conducted by NTT Communications, NTT DOCOMO and TOBU RAILWAY

- Transmission of video to a train running at approximately 90 km/h -

TOKYO, Feb, 05 2019 - (JCN Newswire) - NEC Corporation (TSE: 6701) has contributed to a high-definition video transmission test utilizing 5G to a high-speed train conducted by NTT Communications Corporation, NTT DOCOMO, INC. and TOBU RAILWAY CO., LTD. through the provision of a 5G base station(1).

This test was conducted in Kasukabe City, Saitama, Japan, using a train on the Tobu Skytree Line from December 17 to 21, 2018.

4K and 8K high-definition videos were transmitted from a 5G base station installed along the railroad, corresponding to the 4.5 GHz band and 28 GHz band, to a 5G mobile station located inside a train running at approximately 90 km/h and projected on a large display in real time. In addition, the videos were transmitted to 40 smartphones on the train via wireless LAN.

The NEC 5G base station was equipped with a Massive MIMO antenna, which forms beams (directivity) that concentrate power on the location and direction of the 5G mobile station. Since the antenna always forms optimal beams for a mobile station by making the beams track the mobile station in motion, it is capable of realizing a high-data transmission rate and high-quality wireless data communication, even for a mobile station installed inside a moving train, as in this demonstration.

This demonstration of 5G enables the transmission of high-presence and high-definition video content, even on a train or a bus in motion, providing a service that allows the distribution of large-capacity content in a variety of media, regardless of the location or situation. Moving forward, NEC will continue to work on 5G verification throughout a wide range of use cases, such as urban and rural areas.

This demonstration includes part of the results of a 5G Integrated Verification Trial conducted by NTT Communications Corporation in 2018, "The commissioned research and examination concerning technical conditions, etc. for the fifth-generation mobile communications system capable of high-speed communication exceeding 1 Gbps on average during moving at high-speed," commissioned by Japan's Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications.
