NEC brings AI to submarine cable networks
NEC Corporation has announced successful transmission tests that took place over a commercial subsea cable measuring more than 10,000 kilometers using AI and probabilistic shaping at a modulation of 64QAM. NEC, in a joint research publication with Google, has demonstrated for the first time that the FASTER open subsea cable can be upgraded to a spectral efficiency of 6 bits per second per hertz (b/s/Hz) in an 11,000km segment.
5G contributes to remote medical examination trials
NEC Corporation has announced its contributions to field trials in remote medical examinations using 5G. NEC provided a base station system as part of comprehensive 5G demonstration experiments carried out by NTT DOCOMO, the Wakayama Prefectural Government, and Wakayama Medical University and hosted by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications.
Simultaneous digital beamforming supports 5G communications
With a massive-element active antenna base station system that supports a 28GHz band for 5G communications, NEC has announced the successful transmission of digital beamforming. This is the first time simultaneous beamforming transmission (four multi-user MIMO) from a single massive-element active antenna system (AAS) to four terminals has succeeded. In this test, NEC achieved a 3.1Gbps cell throughput by applying a frequency bandwidth of 30...
The future of 5G is coming to Mobile World Congress

Facial recognition system adopted by cities across the world
An advanced surveillance system for cities using facial recognition has been provided to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia, in cooperation with Capital Systems LLC, by NEC.
NEC enables ink dots to become identification tags
NEC has announced the development of a "micro-sized Identifier Dot on Things" (mIDoT) technology that enables single dots written with off-the-shelf glitter ink pens to become distinctive identification tags. mIDoT analyses camera images with a specialised algorithm to quickly and accurately recognise tiny patterns in the ink of individual dots, which are difficult to duplicate or identify with the naked eye.
NEC provides facial recognition system to South Wales Police
NEC has announced that it has provided a facial recognition system for South Wales Police in the UK through NEC Europe. The system utilises NeoFace Watch, NEC's flagship facial recognition software platform featuring the world's highest recognition precision. NeoFace Watch is used for real-time CCTV surveillance, as well as still image and recorded video face search, which helps to ensure security in crowded locations, such as airports and s...
