'Super 3G' Coming Soon

NTT DoCoMo, Vodafone, Alcatel, Siemens to build 'Super 3G' technology - report

TOKYO, Dec 31, 2004 (AFX-Europe via COMTEX) -- The world's 26 major mobile phone operators and telecommunication equipment-makers have agreed to work on a global standard for a super fast mobile transmission technology, the Nihon Keizai Shimbun business daily reported, without quoting sources.

The group includes NTT DoCoMo and NEC of Japan, Britain's Vodafone Group PLC, US cellphone carrier Cingular Wireless, Alcatel of France and Siemens AG of Germany, the newspaper said.

Using the new technology called Super 3G, the group plans to launch by 2009 global services for transmitting large volumes of moving images by mobile phones at a speed 10 times faster than the current 3G (third-generation) technology, the report said.

Super 3G can boost mobile transmission speeds to a range of 30 to 100 megabits per second to match existing land line fiber optic telecom technology, allowing movies, games or home videos to be played on handsets with a much higher resolution, it said.

The report said the cost of upgrading the mobile telecommunication network for Super 3G in Japan may top 100 bln yen (975 mln usd).

The report could not be confirmed by Vodafone's Japan unit, NTT DoCoMo Inc, or NEC Corp.
