Network Evolution toward 2020 and Beyond

The "Network 2020" - Gearing up for 5G

Mobile network players are under pressure to deliver enhanced mobile broadband services with high data throughput, various IoT services with ultra-low latency and massive connectivity in line with future trends.
NEC is therefore developing 5G solutions for social value platforms that will integrate mobile networks with ICT-enabled urban and industrial infrastructure to deliver wide-ranging advances such as ultra high-definition video broadcasts, advanced driver assistance and industrial IoT.

Innovative new business models and services will have diverse performance requirements that conflict with each other. Therefore, multi-industry ecosystems will require a flexible RAN architecture capable of delivering necessary functionalities and resources to each network node on demand. Based on vast experience in IT and telecom networks, NEC promotes a combination of SDN/NFV, C-RAN, Massive MIMO, MEC (Mobile Edge Computing) technologies to realize the most practical and economical solution for 5G RAN architecture.

Through collaboration, open innovation and leading-edge technology, NEC is committed to realizing social value platforms for future network business. Our flexible integration of advanced mobile networks with ICT-enabled urban and industrial infrastructure will bring wide-ranging benefits to consumers and businesses. It will also help resolve pressing environmental, safety and security issues to the benefit of all of society.
