Fujitsu said it will start offering services to support customers’ use of private 5G or private wireless systems in Japan, optimizing digital transformation initiatives.
Private Wireless Managed Services ensures reduction in the initial deployment cost, Fujitsu said.
Fujitsu’s Private 5G Partnership Program offers several use cases and solutions developed utilizing private 5G in cooperation with partner companies. Fujitsu Collaboration Lab verification facility in Kawasaki, Japan will be available for connecting various devices from partner companies and implementing co-created solutions.
Fujitsu will offer Private Wireless Cloud Services on a monthly usage basis to facilitate communications functions and related management functions in private wireless systems. These services will be available from October 8 in Japan.
These services will be compatible with 4.7 GHz band stand-alone (SA) 5G base stations that are scheduled for release in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, realizing private wireless cloud services to optimize deployment costs.
This service offers base stations, core networks and SIMs. Fujitsu will provide service management functions such as remote monitoring of operation status, as well as primary response in case of failure, on a monthly basis to realize a small start with low initial installation cost.
The 4.7 GHz-band SA-type 5G base stations to be offered in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 will also be available for this service.
Since obtaining the first commercial private 5G license in Japan on March 27, 2020, Fujitsu has been promoting the use of private 5G through in-house verification of security systems utilizing high-definition video.
