Latest Trends in Radio Frequency Administration in Japan
Naohiko Ogihara (Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications)
Radio frequencies play an important role in the daily lives and socio-economic activities of people. The Covid-19 pandemic can be viewed as a trigger for further progress in the future digital transformation of society as a whole. It is necessary to promote digital transformation and make effective use of radio waves, which are a scarce and finite resource shared by all citizens, as well as to widely distribute its benefits among citizens in order to revitalize the economy and society of Japan.
Therefore, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications has been studying a future vision for the use of radio waves, alongside challenges facing radio wave policies in the digital transformation era, and new goals and realization measures for the effective use of radio waves.
In this presentation, I will introduce the latest trends in radio frequency administration.

5G Evolution and 6G
Tsakehiro Nsakamura (NTT DOCOMO, INC. Senior Vice President General Manager of 6G-IOWN Promotion Department)
Commercial 5G services have been launched globally. Study and development for technologies toward the evolution of 5G are ongoing, taking into account issues in early 5G services and emerging market needs. In parallel, research focused on technologies and services beyond 5G and 6G is accelerating throughout the world. NTT DOCOMO published a white paper on 5G evolution and 6G in January 2020 and updated it in February 2021.
This presentation will explain NTT DOCOMO's views described in the white paper as well as our latest activities on 5G evolution and 6G.

Sub-6GHz Microwave Power Amplifier Technologies for 5G and Beyond 5G Systems
Organizer / Chair :  Ryo Ishikawa (The Univ. of Electro-Communications)
5G services have started, and are being considered for practical use in various applications. Additionally, 5G is gradually evolved toward to the full-spec 5G in the future. Therefore, further performance improvements are required for hardware devices. The sub-6GHz band in 5G is considered to be able to develop by expanding the conventional communication technology, though performance improvement is necessary. In addition, the sub-6GHz band is easier to handle in the viewpoint of radio wave propagation characteristics than the quasi-millimeter wave band. Therefore, the sub-6GHz band is one of the important bands in 5G.
In this session, various methods to improve performance for wide-dynamic-range power amplifiers that amplifies digitally modulated signals with high efficiency are presented, as a power amplifier technology in the sub-6GHz band. In addition, technological developments from various perspectives, such as distortion compensation and applications, are introduced.
