Skyworks Powers Next Generation 4G/5G Mobile Hotspots

Skyworks has announced that its SkyOne Ultra 3.0 portfolio is being leveraged by Inseego, a pioneer in 5G and intelligent IoT device-to-cloud solutions, for their next generation mobile hotspot. Given the significant growth in mobile subscribers and densification of data traffic – which will intensify with 5G – demand for portable, reliable, anytime connectivity is rapidly increasing. Skyworks’ compact, highly-integrated front-end system is being utilized in combination with Qualcomm’s LTE X20 modem to power Inseego’s MiFi 8800L device, the first commercially available gigabit LTE platform for Cat 18. The complete, global solution covers more than 23 bands and provides ultra-fast user experiences with enterprise-grade security.

According to Zion Market Research, the mobile hotspot router market is expected to increase from approximately $2 billion in 2017 to more than $7 billion by 2024, a compound annual growth rate of 20 percent.

The SkyOne Ultra 3.0 family utilizes Skyworks’ SkyBlue™ enabling technology to deliver strict performance and efficiency requirements for today’s Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The highly-integrated architectures incorporate all of the power amplification, integrated filtering, antenna switching and diversity receive functionality in an extremely compact package, facilitating seamless deployment of cellular connectivity across a wide range of IoT products.
