Posted: 25-Apr-2002 [Source: NTT DoCoMo press release]

[NTT DoCoMo to begin licensing patents for its proprietary W-CDMA technology.]

Tokyo -- NTT DoCoMo, Inc. announced today that it will begin licensing patents for its proprietary W-CDMA technology on which the world's first third-generation (3G) wireless service is based.

As global telecommunications operators gear up for launch of 3G mobile communications services, DoCoMo is envisioning extensive use of its IMT-2000 compliant W-CDMA system. To encourage worldwide implementation, DoCoMo will offer essential patents at reasonable and non-exclusive terms.

Patents will be licensed to manufacturers which supply 3G products to mobile communications operators. Widespread adoption of W-CDMA technology is expected to reduce procurement and production costs, which will contribute to lowering fees for service and products.

Manufacturers wishing to apply for licenses are requested to fill in and submit an application form by fax or email. The application form, W-CDMA essential patent list and further licensing information are also available at
