Due to the challenging nature of deployment locations, the cellular internet service quality DOCOMO PACIFIC offered is greatly impacted by the reduced signal quality, leading to significantly lower-than-expected data rates and overall poor subscriber experience.

About the Customer
DOCOMO PACIFIC is a wholly owned subsidiary of NTT DOCOMO, Japan’s leading mobile operator. Founded in 1991 and Headquartered in Tamuning, Guam, DOCOMO PACIFIC is the largest provider of personal, residential, enterprise connectivity, and entertainment services in Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands. DOCOMO PACIFIC was named Guam’s most reliable network with the fastest speeds and best coverage by GWS in 2019 and was named a 5-time winner of Best of The Pacific. DOCOMO PACIFIC is dedicated to bringing you and your family closer to the things that matter most.
In 2017, DOCOMO PACIFIC completed and made operational its 280-kilometer ATISA submarine fiber optic cable connecting Guam to the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI). This investment allowed for the further development and launch of enhanced mobile and new fixed wireless access (FWA) services.
The primary challenges for DOCOMO PACIFIC included deployment locations with non-line of sight (NLOS) conditions and high-density tree foliage. The result in all cases is greatly reduced signal quality, leading to significantly lower-than-expected data rates and overall poor subscriber experience. Aside from the primary challenges, DOCOMO PACIFIC also required a cost-effective solution with deployment flexibility and scalability to meet bandwidth demands and future network growth.
The company tested a variety of equipment, carefully evaluating several different manufacturers’ solutions, applicable technologies, and how they worked. However, none of the solutions could adequately address the challenges.
