Intel plans to sample a 5G modem in H2



Intel is to sample a 5G modem in H2 which is the same timing as Qualcomm has announced for its 5G modem.

“The modem’s baseband chip pairs with a new 5G transceiver that enables both sub-6 Ghz and mmWave capabilities,” says Intel’s GM for the communications and devices group, Aicha Evans (pictured), “this combination incorporates key 3GPP 5G NR technology – including low latency frame structures, advanced channel coding and massive MIMO – to deliver faster connectivity and ultra-responsiveness. Our goal is to support both early trials and to lay a foundation enabling accelerated development of products that will support the 3GPP NR specification and help drive global adoption of the 3GPP 5G standard.”

With a markedly inferior 4G modem to Qualcomm’s, this is an early move in 5G is an attempt to affirm Intel’s position as a player in mobile.
