docomo

Customer OverviewNTT docomo is a world-leading mobile operator that serves over 59 million customers in Japan via advanced wireless networks, including one of the world’s first commercial 3G/LTE/LTE-A networks. Leveraging its unique capabilities as a mobile operator, NTT docomo is a leading developer of cutting-edge technologies for NFC mobile payments, mobile GPS, mobile TV, intuitive mobile assistance, environmental monitoring, smart grids, C-RAN and much more.

Artiza’s Solutions for NTT docomoArtiza’s eNodeB Tester DuoSIM-A has further enhanced NTT docomo's activities for network reliability evaluation with its small footprint, low power consumption, and excellent cost performance. NTT docomo develops and evaluates multiple models of LTE eNBs according to location, cell size, and number of users. Artiza's DuoSIM has become the cornerstone that sets the quality standards of NTT docomo's comprehensive LTE eNB development through its flexible functionalities and performance. NTT docomo is currently using multiple installations of high-capacity DuoSIM LTE eNB testers.

docomo 4G

NTT docomo’s AdvancesIn March 2015 NTT docomo launched its LTE-Advanced next-generation mobile communication service featuring a Japan-best 225 Mbps maximum data-transmission speed. The use of Carrier Aggregation technology enabled docomo to achieve its ultra-high speed downlink. In 2016, docomo implemented TDD+FDD joint operation and new CA frequency combinations, including in the 3.5 GHz band, to further accelerate speeds to 375 Mbps in May. Docomo has set plans to introduce 4x4 MIMO and reach 500 Mbps before the end of Q1 2017.

Advanced C-RAN and the DuoSIM-AA unique feature of docomo's LTE-Advanced service is its introduction of Advanced C-RAN, a network architecture that combines C-RAN and Carrier Aggregation to increase radio capacity and maximum transmission speed simultaneously especially in high-traffic areas. Artiza’s DuoSIM-A eNB tester is the testbed that enabled docomo to develop and verify this technology, and is currently the only proven C-RAN test solution in the market.

Fujitsu

Customer OverviewFujitsu is a leading provider of information and communication technology based business solutions for the global marketplace. Fujitsu combines a worldwide team of systems and services experts with highly reliable computing and communications products and advanced microelectronics to deliver added value to customers in over 100 countries.

Artiza’s Solutions for FujitsuFujitsu has been using Artiza’s LTE eNB Testers to perform load testing on LTE eNBs since 2009. Its LTE eNBs are deployed by NTT docomo's nationwide commercial LTE service “Xi”, since the end of 2010. Artiza’s LTE eNB Testers are used in Fujitsu's lab to test macro-cell eNBs with up to 3,000 UEs/sector, the same configuration that was introduced in NTT docomo's lab. The CPRI (Common Public Radio Interface) is used for connections between the eNB and the tester for the highest possible test efficiency. Artiza’s LTE testers are also used for Fujitsu’s eNodeB release testing.
