DOCOMO Beijing Communications Laboratories Co., Ltd. was founded on Nov. 2003 in Beijing,Zhongguancun Science and Technology Park, and it’s wholly-owned by NTT DOCOMO. In order to promote scientific and technological innovations within DOCOMO, experts from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines work together and contribute to a plethora of innovative research activities. Our team is focused on advanced research in high speed and high capacity wireless transmission technologies, contributing to global mobile communications. The overall purpose of our foundation is to establish closer connections between our two countries to realize the full potential of future mobile and personal communication technologies in 4G and beyond.
Over the past 5 years, DOCOMO Beijing Labs has been working on LTE, IMT-Advanced, and beyond, developing system control technology and serving to achieve NTT DOCOMO’s ultimate purpose: “Shift from communications infrastructure to lifestyle infrastructure.”
DBL currently consists of the Innovative Radio Transmissions Lab, Advanced Wireless System Lab, and Mobile Ubiquitous Communications Lab. The Innovative Radio Transmissions Lab is focusing on multi-dimensional wireless access technologies and which can systematically integrate both cellular and ubiquitous networks. The Advanced Wireless System Lab is creating cutting-edge wireless system technologies,including coordinated communication ,MAC and mobility,spectrum sharing to design more effective, flexible systems to meet QoS requirements. The Mobile Ubiquitous Communications Lab is giving us a glimpse of the enticing future of mobile communications. It is not only developing new and innovative technologies but also pioneering new services and business models. There are plenty of new opportunities and challenges for mobile ubiquitous communications and we are well prepared.
DOCOMO Beijing Labs has taken on the responsibility and mission of NTT DOCOMO as its own. We have met with brilliant success with our research on 4G mobile communications, been producing a wealth of high quality international conference papers, dozens of journal articles, and submitting more than a dozen proposals to the 3GPP International Conference on Standardization.
China has the largest number of mobile phone subscribers in the world and its status will increase in significance. This provides us with a clear direction and nearly unlimited opportunity for development. DOCOMO Beijing Labs was founded to establish a stronger partnership with China and to open up a new era of communications.
