For 6G, there will be interactive demonstrations of FEEL TECH,® an innovative technology that revolutionizes the sharing of sensory information between people DOCOMO's Human Augmentation Platform connected to a 6G network. This pioneering technology aims to facilitate clear transmission of sensory information that is often difficult to communicate verbally, paving the way for a new communication culture and providing added value for an enhanced quality of life.

The booth will also provide a glimpse of the coming world of 6G and advanced wireless technologies that DOCOMO is now developing, such as a non-terrestrial network (NTN) incorporating high-altitude platform stations (HAPS),1 which are expected to facilitate the broad extension of communication services beyond the reach of conventional terrestrial network areas, from remote seas to low-orbit space.

For Open RAN, in addition to presenting the OREX®2-branded services (OREX Packages), DOCOMO will introduce the latest initiatives with diverse global vendors and operators since the launch of the OREX to make Open RAN a reality.

For XR, DOCOMO will showcase the first concept model3 of XR glasses from NTT QONOQ Devices, INC.,4 which is scheduled for release around mid-2024, along with images of utilization.
