NTT DoCoMo, NTT Com to launch new service
Posted: 12-Jul-2000 [Source: Nikkei Communications]

[NTT DoCoMo plans additional service for their personal digital cellular mobile phones.]

Tokyo -- "NTT DoCoMo Inc. and NTT Communications Corp. in mid-July will launch a new remote-access data communication service called "Remote Access Line Service (RALS)" that they co-developed.

"RALS enables personal handyphone system (PHS) phone users to access a corporate network.

"With this service, NTT Com's center and corporate networks are connected by its frame relay/cell relay service or its "OCN" Internet connection service. End users can make a dial-up Internet connection via NTT DoCoMo's PHS to the access server of NTT Com's center for access to corporate networks, for a unified fee all around Japan. Instead of building a remote access system on their own, users will be spared the time and cost of access server installation and user management.

"Also, with a dedicated phone number beginning with "0035," the users can place phone calls using a single phone number anywhere in Japan.

"The users will be charged 10 yen a minute between 2:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. and 13 yen at other times. (106.95 yen = US$1) The users subscribing to a certain PHS service plan offered by NTT DoCoMo are charged 10 yen for 18 seconds any time of day. Additionally, the users are required to pay a usage fee for access lines of frame relay/cell relay or OCN that connect corporate networks and NTT Com's center and usage charges for the access servers. For OCN, the monthly charge is 6,000 yen for one user and 2,500 yen for each additional user.

"NTT DoCoMo and NTT Com plan to add a circuit-switching data communications service for NTT DoCoMo's personal digital cellular mobile phones as well as a packet communications service called "DoPa" to the RALS some time in the fall of 2000.

"DDI Pocket Inc. has already provided a similar service called "Pocket MAL" using DDI Corp.'s frame relay network.
