FREMONT, CA: Qualcomm Technologies and NTT DOCOMO announce that they have together allowed the world's first commercialization of 5G sub-6 GHz carrier aggregation (sub6-CA) in Japan, effective immediately, to bring multi-gigabit mobile experiences to DOCOMO customers. Implementation of 5G carrier aggregation, a vital capability in 5G specifications, allows customers to enjoy the enhanced performance on DOCOMO's quickly evolving 5G network.

This is achieved through 5G sub-6 GHz carrier aggregation, which combines a 100 MHz carrier in-band n78 and a 100 MHz carrier in-band n79 to boost 5G performance and network capacity leveraging DOCOMO's diverse spectrum assets.

The implementation of 5G Sub6-CA, along with 5G mmWave 28 GHz band that DOCOMO began operating commercially in September, will roll out the full potential of 5G and allow the accelerated deployment of DOCOMO's 5G service areas. By offering access to breakthrough technologies like 5G carrier aggregation, the company enables consumers and companies throughout Japan to access faster connectivity, enhanced capacity, and better reliability.
