Fujitsu Launches Japan's First Commercial Private 5G Network


TOKYO, Mar 27, 2020 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu today was granted Japan's first commercial private 5G radio station license from the Kanto Bureau of Telecommunications and will begin operating a Private 5G network at its Shin-Kawasaki Technology Square office.

Fujitsu will strengthen crime prevention measures in the building by leveraging its private 5G technology for data transmission of high-definition images collected by multi-point cameras, creating an AI-powered security system that quickly detects suspicious behavior through motion analysis. Through its newly-established private 5G co-creation space "FUJITSU Collaboration Lab", Fujitsu will also offer customers and partners the chance to workshop various use cases for private 5G to deliver business innovation and help resolve regional issues. Fujitsu experts will also provide support with on-site implementation for customers at the location.

With the aim of creating a smart factory, Fujitsu will additionally obtain a license for private 5G at its Oyama plant in Tochigi Prefecture, which serves as a manufacturing base for network equipment. Together with Fujitsu Telecom Networks Limited, which manufactures network equipment at this plant, Fujitsu will continue to verify the utility and possible applications for its private 5G technologies.
