Qualcomm's 5G RF Modem Selected by More than 30 OEMs

Qualcomm announced that the recently launched Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System, has now been selected by over 30+ global original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). The 5G solution is expected to be seen in commercial applications including 5G fixed wireless access (FWA) customer-premises equipment (CPE) device launches starting in 2020.

Some of the leading OEMs and solution providers working with Qualcomm Technologies include: Arcadyan, Askey, AVM, Casa Systems, Compal, Cradlepoint, Fibocom, FIH, Franklin, Gemtek, Gongjin, Gosuncn Technology Group, Inseego, LG, Linksys, MeiG, NETGEAR, Nokia, OPPO, Panasonic Mobile Communications, Quanta, Quectel, Sagemcom, Samsung Electronics, Sharp Corporation, Sercomm, Sierra Wireless, Sunsea, Technicolor, Telit, Wewins, Wingtech, WNC, and ZTE.

With strong customer interest for the Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System, Qualcomm Technologies is extending its wireless leadership – spanning modem, RF transceiver, RF front-end and antenna modules – into a fast-growing opportunity for 5G mobile operators. The X55 provides a comprehensive, fully integrated modem-to-antenna 5G solution, which is engineered to streamline product development for multiple mobile broadband product categories, including sub-6 GHz, mmWave and extended-range mmWave CPE devices. This solution is designed to provide OEMs with the technology capabilities they need to tackle wireless complexity while enabling them to offer a diverse product portfolio to their customers.

According to Qualcomm, the comprehensive solution architecture, which supports virtually any combination of 5G spectrum bands and modes, from sub-6 to extended-range mmWave, will empower global mobile carriers and OEMs to offer best-in-class 5G performance to homes and businesses, including those in previously underserved areas. The widespread adoption of the modem-to-antenna solution translates into enhanced fixed broadband services and additional opportunities to utilize 5G network infrastructure for broad coverage in urban, suburban and rural environments.

Due to the development ease of Qualcomm’s integrated system and industry movement toward self-installed, plug-and-play CPE devices, the company expects OEMs will be able to support fixed broadband deployments beginning in 2020. Qualcomm is showcasing commercial CPE devices powered by the Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System at the Qualcomm 5G Summit in Barcelona, October 14-16, 2019.
