Intel ramps up 5G development with new modem launches

In fact, it might remove internet cables from our lives at maximum places.

Intel has introduced a number of 5G modems as part of its proclaimed commitment to accelerate the adoption of the next-generation wireless communications standard.

Intel is expecting its first 5G chips to roll out in 2019, with the rollout of 5G network. But, Intel hasn't lifted their focus from the LTE networks yet, as the 5G networks might take some time to mature. Intel says that the XM 7660 will be commercially available in 2019. It also has one of the best support for CDMA networks, which Verizon and Sprint use, which isn't surprising since it was instrumental in developing the technology. Highlights include the introduction of the Intel® XMM™ 8000 series, Intel's first family of 5G new radio (5G NR) multi-mode commercial modems, and Intel's latest LTE modem, the Intel® XMM™ 7660.

These modems will allow our smartphones, computers, set-top boxes, etc., to connect to the blazing fast wireless networks.

It is known that Apple Inc. has approached Intel to put their 5G modems in Apple devices in the future.

On the 4G LTE front, Intel's current top-shelf modem is the XMM 7480, which supports 4x carrier aggregation and download/upload speeds of 600Mbps and 150Mbps respectively (it's prominently used in AT&T/T-Mobile versions of Apple's iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X). Sources familiar with the matter told Fast Company that the goal of this project is to build a modem into a system-on-a-chip with Apple's A-series processor, GPU, and other iPhone components. So that it will be the huge opportunity for Intel to supply 5G modems to Apple and the company reportedly have a team of multiple thousands working on 5G.

According to rumors, Apple will eliminate Qualcomm chips from its 2018 iPhones and iPad while the Qualcomm says its technology is "at the heart of every iPhone".
