is the first commercial Intel modem for 5G networks, supporting multi-mode operation for high-grade 5G new radio (NR), as well as in various 2G, 3G (including CDMA) and 4G networks. The modem works both in the global sub-6 GHz band and in millimeter waves.Intel XMM 7660
newest LTE modem from the 19th category, operating at speeds up to 1.6 gigabits per second. This powerful LTE modem provides extended support for MIMO technology (multiple-input and multiple-output), carrier aggregation and works in a wide range of bands.
It is expected that new Intel modems will appear in commercial devices of customers (and, therefore, in our phones with you) in the middle of 2019.
In addition, Intel announced the successful implementation of calls fully implemented in the fifth-generation network using the Intel 5G Modem modem, which is an important milestone in the development of this technology. According to forecasts, widespread deployment of 5G networks will begin in 2020
