Japan accepts applications for local 5G networks

The Japanese Ministry of the Interior and Communications (MIC) confirmed the early acceptance of applications for the deployment and commissioning of local 5G networks. The corresponding frequency bands for this technology were already announced at the end of 2019. Companies, local government and universities will be among the first users of 5G. By combining LTE and 5G technology, users will be able to share the Internet and local or private networks.


The geographically limited 5G networks operate on different frequencies than those used by existing mobile operators. The first test runs and trials are scheduled to begin in early February. The Japanese company NEC announced that it will provide the technology and services for these local 5G networks. Other companies such as Fujitsu, Toshiba and Mitsubishi are also considering entering the 5G technology.

Earlier this month, Nokia announced that together with local partners, it will offer a complete solution for 5G, private networks and LTE for industrial customers and the government in Japan. Nokia has entered into partnerships with cross-divisional companies. The individual partners are NS Solutions for production IoT, Marubeni for global IoT, Internet Initiative Japan as a mobile service provider, Equinix for cloud applications and data centers, and Hitachi Kokusai Electric for infrastructure and video streaming.

The Japanese government has already given the green light for the creation of a nationwide 5G network. Previously, the four largest mobile operators had announced that they would invest the equivalent of $14.4 billion over the next five years in this innovative technology. The applications of NTT DoCoMo, KDDI, Softbank and e-commerce giant Rakuten have already been approved by MIC, provided that only the allocated frequency bands are used for the corresponding 5G networks.
