THE EUROPEAN 5G CONFERENCE, BRUSSELS ©3G4G • At the European 5G Conference 2019, Takehiro Nakamura, SVP of 5G labs at Japanese operator NTT Docomo, highlighted the importance of setting realistic expectations for new network technologies and the continued pivotal role of LTE. • Nakamura-san explained, “Many partners have a misunderstanding about 5G. We provided the dreams of 5G, but we now need to explain the real 5G.”

Some believe 5G will be available everywhere, of course most people know this will not be the case, but some industry people still don’t know about the reality that it will be deployed [initially] in limited areas.” • “Other industry people believe there will be a 10Gb/s data rate everywhere with 1 millisecond latency,” he added. “The bitrate will be lower than that due to conditions and latency will be several milliseconds depending on the network and distance from the terminal. We need to explain this.”
