Intel ships first LTE modem for smartphones and tablets

Intel has already started shipping to device manufacturers their first LTE modem chip that also supports 3G and 2G networks.

To clear things up, this new chip is not Intel’s first LTE modem. As GigaOM writes, the first one was released last year but works on 4G networks only. However, this Intel XMM7160 chip not only supports 15 global LTE bands but also 5-band HSPA+ and 4-band EDGE.



Below are the key features of the Intel XMM7160:
• 4-band EDGE
• 5-band HSPA+
• Multi-band LTE
• 42 Mbps DC-HSPA
• 150 Mbps CAT 4 LTE
• Antenna diversity
• Multimode platform
• Intel X-GOLD™ 716 baseband
• Choice of Intel SMARTi™ 4G transceiver or Intel SMARTi™ m4G integrated transceiver and front end module
• Intel Comneon Release 9 protocol stack
• VoLTE (Voice-over-LTE)
• Very small footprint
• Low power consumption
• Pre-certified

Qualcomm is currently the leading supplier of LTE-capable chips for smartphones and tablets. With the XMM7160, Intel is hoping that it will put them back in the game.

    So to be clear, this is just a modem and not an inclusive SOC for the CPU?… Intel wilk have difficulty penetrating the market since Qualcomm provides System on a Chip (SOC), a single module comprised of CPU and network radio vs Intel’s separate CPU and radio.

      yup this is just a modem, sana include nila to sa upcoming SoC nila para may 3G/HSPA+/LTE radio na din ung mga phones/tablets na gagamit ng proc nila

  5. Aside from that, interview former patients to obtain first-hand insight into a particular cosmetic surgeon’s methods,
    approach, and techniques to plastic surgery. An experienced plastic surgeon can ensure you appealing aesthetic results with
    the help of innovative body contouring procedures. The physical and external benefits are very obvious.

    The sun has always been considered the best option for those looking to soak up Vitamin D.
    Especially when you already know they’re going to be insecure about their looks some time.
    This is a healthier way to get a rich and dark suntan when compared
    to other sun tanning methods such as tanning beds or sun beds.
    Your chances of getting an even tan are better with
    sprays. Manufactured with FDA approved natural
    ingredients, this clinically tested oral spray is
    absorbed quickly, thus immediately curbing your desire to eat.
    Depending on your skin type, you can choose for yourself and get a natural-looking and spotless tan instantly.
    However, that does not mean that they are going without the authentic appearance of
    a tan that results from hours of sunbathing.
    Many women want to look charming with a glowing skin and a perfect
    shade of tan. whilst we will all admit to having
    used some of the stuff in those months where obtaining a tan the old fashioned
    way was proving tricky, no-one wants to admit it.
    Asyana has put all of the good things into their sunless tan, and
    left out all those nasties such as paraben preservatives and alcohol, so that
    you can truly enjoy that summer glow any time you
