Fujitsu Selected to Develop and Manufacture Super 3G Wireless Base Station Equipment for NTT DoCoMo

- Company eyes global expansion as comprehensive mobile solutions provider -

Fujitsu Limited

Tokyo, November 21, 2006

Fujitsu Limited today announced that it has been selected in NTT DoCoMo, Inc.'s procurement process to develop and manufacture prototypes and commercial equipment for DoCoMo's super 3G wireless base stations.

As the Long Term Evolution(1) specification being promoted as an international standard by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP)(2), super 3G is expected to improve 3G cellular system performance exponentially. Super 3G enables superfast mobile communications, with downlink transmission rates of over 100 Mbps and uplink rates of over 50 Mbps, and is expected to provide an advanced environment for services such as high-speed video distribution as well as enable improved spectrum utilization.

Fujitsu has been actively involved in the 3GPP's standardization initiatives from the outset, and has been developing the fundamental technologies required to improve spectrum efficiency for the Super 3G standard, such as multi-antenna system(3) and OFDM(4)technologies. In addition, Fujitsu has already been providing high-quality, high-performance systems utilizing the cutting-edge technology under the current 3G standard, such as amplifiers featuring the world-class levels of efficiency.

Along with further strengthening its partnership with DoCoMo and leveraging its cutting-edge devices and system development, to bring the Super 3G to fruition, Fujitsu is looking toward global expansion of its business as a global provider of comprehensive mobile solutions and as a leading contributor to the advancement of mobile communications.
