SANTA CLARA, CA and TOKYO--(Marketwire - June 10, 2009) - Stoke, Inc. (http://www.stoke.com), a provider of mobile broadband multi-access gateways, and Net One Systems Co., Ltd., Japan's leading networking and systems integration provider, today announced they have been selected by NTT DOCOMO Inc. for their commercial service.

Japan represents one of the most technically advanced communications markets in the world, with leading edge mobile service offerings and a subscriber base in excess of 105 million. The new infrastructure will allow NTT DOCOMO to provide improved service and expand accessibility for users. The solution will enhance NTT DOCOMO's ability to manage the increasing mobile broadband traffic on their RAN and backhaul infrastructure.
