August 5, 2022 Results of Public Solicitation for Proposals concerning FY2022 Development Demonstrations for Realizing Local 5G Services to Solve Issues (Development Demonstration Projects)
The Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC) made a public solicitation for proposals concerning fiscal 2022 development demonstrations for realizing local 5G services to solve issues through a contractor (Mitsubishi Research Institute, Inc.). Based on the evaluation results by the external experts' meeting, MIC selected proposals concerning development demonstration projects.
As in fiscal 2020, MIC will conduct technical studies, including those on radio wave propagation, under a wide variety of usage environments assuming various actual usage situations. At the same time, MIC will implement development demonstrations for realizing local 5G services to solve issues to create solutions that utilize local 5G. Thereby, MIC intends to realize the more flexible operation of local 5G and the inexpensive, safe, and secure utilization of local 5G.
In implementing this project, MIC solicited proposals from Wednesday, June 1, through Thursday, June 30, 2022, through a contractor.
