5G network modem Chipset

Qualcomm has just announced its new modem chipset solution for the 5G Network

The Snapdragon X50 will support peak download speeds of up to 5 gigabits per second. This is just the first product for 5G and more developed versions will surely follow when 5G actually launches. The x50 is aimed at the mobile 5G device makers to help facilitate live 5G trials for the mobile networks.

The Snapdragon will initially support the mmWave spectrum in the 28GHz band.

Qualcomm, which has just announced the first commercial 5G modem chipset solution.

Dubbed the Snapdragon X50, it will support peak download speeds of up to 5 gigabits per second, and it’s designed to help mobile device makers build the first wave of 5G devices, as well as aiding mobile networks with early 5G trials and deployments.

By the time 5G is commercially available we’ll probably have even newer and better modems, but the X50 could be used by manufacturers when testing devices on a live 5G network, to gain insight into integrating 5G technologies into smartphones and other compact devices.

The Snapdragon X50 will initially support millimetre wave (mmWave) spectrum in the 28GHz band, and its use of mmWave spectrum – which 5G will be reliant on – means it’s ideally positioned to help mobile networks conduct lab tests and field trials of 5G technologies.
