WTP assembles the latest products and technologies which are essential for research and development of wireless communications technology. Under the main theme, “5G & IoT -Creating New Value”, WTP2017 features the 5th Generation Mobile Communication System, the most advanced technologies for mobile communication and introduces various wireless technologies applicable to the Internet of Things (IoT) in “5G Tokyo Bay Summit 2017” and “Flexible Factory Project”, etc.
Come and see the latest trends of wireless technologies which will expand your business opportunities toward the future.
WTP International Day – May 25
More accessible and more satisfactory experiment for foreign visitors!
“WTP International Day” is planned on May 25 as an opportunity to present Japan’s latest technologies to overseas visitors as well to acknowledge technical trends and needs in the world.
On this day, English explanation will be available at major exhibition booths. Please check the exhibitors and the highlights on “Exhibitors & Highlights”.
In this session, representatives of the promoters of 4 major Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) networks; LoRa, NB-IoT, SIGFOX and Wi-SUN, will give presentations on each standard and participate in the panel discussion so that distinctive feature of each network will be revealed, and further clarification about LPWA networks’ technology can be gained.
In this session, companies and institutions overseas in search of business partners in Japan will introduce their innovative R&D activities.
This year, Cambridge Consultants (U.K.), Sequans Communications (France), CEA-Leti (France), and Imec (Belgium) will be giving presentations on their unique topics.
Support for business matching will be available. WTP international team will support your B-to-B networking with Japanese exhibitors. If you need our support, please consult with us by e-mail in advance to your visit.
WTP2017 Special Contents
The 5G Tokyo Bay Summit 2017
“5G Tokyo Bay Summit TM 2017” will be held in WTP2017 as a special event to introduce the 5th Generation Mobile Communications System (5G). Supported by NTT DOCOMO, INC., a special pavilion and seminar will be set up, and latest 5G initiatives by major mobile operators and manufacturers in the world will be shown. Expected use cases with new services and applications on 5G will also be presented in various demonstrations and seminars.
Flexible Factory Project
- Drive IoT in the manufacturing Field by Wireless Technology
In recent years, wireless communications have received a lot of attentions for many applications at manufacturing. Flexible Factory Project is a verification project of wireless communication technologies to accelerate factory IoT through harmonization and stabilization as keys to control various and mixed wireless systems. At the booth, you can find our latest results, especially about how to apply wireless technologies into the management/monitoring at manufacturing.
Location Service Pavilion
- QZSS, Indoor positioning, Location-based services -
Needs for application using location-based services have been increasing.
The launches of quasi-zenith satellites “Michibiki No.2-No.4”, Japan’s positioning satellites, are scheduled in 2017, and practical application of QZSS will start soon.
Meanwhile, experiments and trials of indoor positioning systems have been conducted in many places accumulating its results.
As the time approaches, when location information technologies will be fully utilized along with AR applications, etc., this “Location Service Pavilion” will show the latest technologies related to positioning through exhibition and seminars.
Intelligent Transport Systems pavilion
Trends of research and development of Intelligent Transport Systems such as automatic collision avoidance system using obstacle detection by radar, driver assistance systems using inter-vehicle and road-to-vehicle communications by 700MHz wave, and autonomous cruise control system using telecommunication or sensor information will be introduced in the special area for ITS and seminars.
