Qualcomm's Snapdragon X24 modem will enable 2 Gbps LTE speeds

Qualcomm's new X24 LTE modem can reach a ridiculously fast 2 gbps

Qualcomm is doubling down on LTE before moving onto 5G

"As the world's first announced Gigabit LTE modem to achieve speeds of up to 2 Gbps, the Snapdragon X24 LTE modem sets a major mobile industry milestone, created to provide enhanced mobile broadband and deliver an extremely important gigabit coverage layer for commercial 5G networks and mobile devices that are expected to start launching in 2019", said Serge Willenegger, senior vice president and general manager of Qualcomm's wireless division.

That standard, Hanna explained, supports an overlay for 4G LTE networks to get decent data rates into users' hands before networks are fully 5G-ready.

We had a chance to see the industry-first demonstration of a wireless PROFINET Industrial Ethernet over 5G NR.

Huawei rejects United States consumer 'security threat ' claim from Central Intelligence Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation
The intelligence chiefs said they were "deeply concerned" about the risks posed by these devices, though Huawei denies any wrongdoing.

Telstra, Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC), NETGEAR and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, today announced they have achieved record-breaking 4G speeds of up to 2 Gigabits per second (Gbps) in lab testing using a new commercially announced chipset.

The list of global operators supporting Snapdragon X50 5G Modem for Mobile 5G NR Trials in 2018 includes AT&T, Sprint, Verizon (USA), BT (UK), China Telekom, China mobile, China Unicom - from guess where - China, Deutsche Telekom (Germany), KDDI, NTT Docomo (Japan), Korea Telekom, LG Uplus SK Telekom from Korea, Orange, Vodafone (many countries in Europe), Telecom Italia mobile (TIM) and of course Australia's jewel Telstra. However, Qualcomm isn't done with 4G LTE technology just yet, which is why it today is introducing the Snapdragon X24.

The Snapdragon X24 LTE modem pairs with an advanced RF transceiver built in 14nm FinFET process technology, and Qualcomm's QET5100 Envelope Tracker, making it the first modem to support 60 MHz envelope tracking for up to 3x uplink carrier aggregation channels with simultaneous High Power User Equipment (HPUE) support in Band 41.

Here's How Khloe Kardashian Quickly Knew Tristan Thompson Was "The One"
While other members of the family (ahem, Kendall) haven't been quite so supportive, Kim said: 'I think it's a good thing. Still, we're mad for Khloe's blossoming baby bump, as it was well and truly on display as she headed out with her fam.

But 5G won't be limited to mobile broadband and phones; Qualcomm wants its chips to be ubiquitous in industrial enterprises - private 5G networks are going to be big, and have the potential to replace wired ethernet setups in many business environments - as well as in cars, which will need a connection to the internet on the way to autonomy, the company argues.

Qualcomm will be demonstrating its new modem at Mobile World Congress at the end of the month. In the uplink, Snapdragon X24 supports Category 20 upload speeds, 3x20 MHz CA and up to 256-QAM. Interestingly, the X24 also supports GNSS for even more accurate positioning (if GPS fails, GNSS will pick up a fix from other systems such as GLONASS or Galileo).

It said equipment manufacturers will benefit from using the chip by offering 360-degree video, cloud computing, entertainment and "instant apps" on their devices.

Christopher Giles was the name of the perpetrator and his intent (as gathered from evidence on his phone) was to kill Free. As police arrived on scene, a Lincoln sedan with New Mexico plates was seen backing out of the driveway to the home.

Mobile operators can gain flexibility in using their spectrum to offer better Internet speeds to consumers, while also improving their network capacity and maximizing spectral efficiency.
