Japanese mobile operator NTT Docomo has field tested an active antenna system for mobile networks in which a 4 dB reduction in electrical loss compared to conventional antennas was demonstrated. The active antenna system for the field test was developed by Tokyo-based Nihon Dengyo Kosaku. By demonstrating the active antenna system's capability to expand a base station's range of coverage, the field test points to the potential for more extensive mobile service in rural areas and faster recovery when rebuilding network infrastructure damaged by a natural disaster.
