Fujitsu, NTT DOCOMO, NEC, and Fujitsu Semiconductor in Joint Venture

Fujitsu Limited, NTT DOCOMO, INC., NEC Corporation, and Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited today announced their agreement to form a joint venture to focus on the development and sales of semiconductor products with built-in modem functions for use in communications equipment.
The joint venture--Access Network Technology Limited, established by Fujitsu--is scheduled to begin operations in August, upon the capital contributions of DOCOMO, NEC, and Fujitsu Semiconductor.

Until now, handset manufacturers including Fujitsu and NEC, together with DOCOMO, conducted communications platform development work collaboratively.

The rapid expansion of the smartphone market and the increase in data traffic volumes have been making
communications platforms increasingly important. The technologies individually held by the companies, as well as the results of their joint development work, offer a huge competitive advantage in the smartphone market, which is expected to experience an even greater global expansion.

Against this backdrop, in the form of a new corporate structure, the joint venture, while enhancing management responsiveness, will bring together technologies from each of the companies to develop communications platform products.
