Takehiro Nakamura
VP and 5G Director of NTT DOCOMO

Takehiro Nakamura joined NTT Laboratories in 1990. He is now VP and Managing Director of the 5G Laboratory of NTT DOCOMO, Inc. Mr. Nakamura has been working for research and development of the W-CDMA, HSPA, LTE/LTE-Advanced and 5G technologies.
He has been engaged in the standardization activities for the W-CDMA, HSPA, LTE/LTE-Advanced and 5G at ARIB in Japan since 1997. He is currently the leader of 2020 and Beyond Ad Hoc(20B AH) in ARIB and Acting Chairman of Plan & Strategy Committee in 5G Mobile Communication Promotion Forum(5GMF) in Japan. He has been contributing to standardization activities in 3GPP since1999. He had contributed to 3GPP TSG-RAN as a vice chairman during March 2005 to March 2009 and as a chairman during April 2009 to March 2013.

Frequency bands above 6 GHz, and especially above 30 GHz, are becoming promising candidate for 5G mobile communications because there are up to tens of GHz of spectrum available. Although higher frequencies have been widely applied to point-to-point communications, their application to mobile communication is still at a very early stage. Application of higher frequency to mobile communications has many challenges including high path loss and body loss, higher penetration and foliage loss, mobility issues, multiple user access, coverage, adaptive access and backhaul and deployment issues in dense network, etc.  Promising techniques include novel beamforming techniques using massive antenna arrays, low form factor chip-scale antennas for base stations and user devices, adaptive backhauling and various system and deployment issues. Despite some progress in the above-mentioned techniques, a complete system design remains elusive.
This workshop will provide a forum for both industry and academia to exchange views and visions. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
•       Candidate higher frequency spectrum including regulatory issues
•       Channel measurement propagation characteristics
•       Channel model @ mmWave
•       Cellular system design @ mm Wave
•       Adaptive beamforming techniques
•       Hybrid MIMO and beamforming
•       New RF for mm Wave signals
•       Antenna design considerations @ mm Wave
•       NLOS channel transmission
•       Radio transmission technology
•       Joint backhaul and access resource scheduling
•       Dense network with millimeter-wave links
•       Adaptive self-backhauling
•       Related standard progress
•       Visible light communications
•       Use of license-exempt spectrum
•       Prototype assessment and verification
