NEC to present at LTE Asia 2009

*** For immediate use August 31, 2009

Tokyo August 31 2009: From 8 to 9 September, 2009, NEC Corporation (NEC) will be present at the 4th annual LTE Asia 2009, held in Hong Kong, to discuss strategies and challenges on LTE related technologies, deployment scenarios, business planning and evolution plans towards LTE and future high speed data services. The conference is one of several notable LTE focused events following the LTE World Summit held last May in Berlin, Germany. (*1)

During the conference, Mr. Kazuya Hashimoto, General Manager of the Mobile Radio Access Network Division, NEC Corporation, will present the best LTE migration scenarios. Presenting at 2.25pm on 8 September, Mr. Hashimoto will examine various types of migration scenarios in relation to Asia's diverse mobile markets. Thanks to the high performance and cost efficiency of LTE technology, LTE can be effectively deployed alongside 3G networks in developed regions as well as with 2G technologies in emerging markets. NEC has been selected for the development and production of LTE equipment by several of the world's leading mobile operators, including W-CDMA and CDMA operators. (*2)

Mr. Hashimoto will also participate in a roundtable discussion on viable migration options for 2G operators. The roundtable discussion will take place on 8 September at 4.55pm and will seek to answer questions that include, “Is 3G/HSPA+ a necessary interim step?” and “Why would an Asian operator newly invest in EV-DO, HSPA/HSPA+ when the first commercial LTE products will be available later this year?”

NEC's new LTE wireless base stations are built in compliance with 3GPP (*3) mobile communications standards. In addition to featuring the world's top level amplifier efficiency, the systems can also be efficiently constructed and operated in an environmentally friendly way through the adoption of a variety of new technologies, including SON (Self Organizing Network).

"NEC shares our accumulated experience and know-how through a wide variety of network and IT projects in Asia and throughout the world," said Hashimoto. "NEC's LTE offers cost effective, seamless LTE migration scenarios in order for future broadband networks to synchronize with market needs. Looking forward, NEC is seeking to drive the development of LTE systems and to contribute to the construction of mobile networks through next generation communication systems."
