What’s Next in 5G - Ep. 2: 10 Gigabit 5G
Qualcomm Technologies VP of Engineering Vanitha Kumar invites you backstage to hear from the people behind our 5G inventions. In What’s Next in 5G, a series of six short episodes, you’ll learn how we develop the technologies of tomorrow.
In Episode 2, Qualcomm Senior VP and General Manager for 5G Durga Malladi speaks with Vanitha about achieving 10 Gigabit 5G speeds — a world-first. They also discuss how Qualcomm Snapdragon X65 5G technology is enabling amazing innovations in broadband internet connectivity, industrial IoT, and smart cities. Durga speaks about the progress made in broadband internet speeds over the past decade, outlining the milestone beginnings of 100 Megabit-per-second speeds achieved in 2010, and 1 Gigabit in 2016. Durga details how the Qualcomm X65 Modem-RF System is the first to reach the 10 Gigabit milestone — the next big leap forward.
Durga and Vanitha also talk about how 10 Gigabit 5G is about much more than faster speeds. This new milestone in 5G technology is capable of massive capacity — delivering richer and more social digital experiences. Higher speed averages and cell edge data rates mean everyone can benefit. In addition, this new technology can enable advanced cloud applications from mobile devices, increasing productivity across the board. The 10 Gigabit 5G era enabled by Qualcomm Snapdragon X65 can bring unrivaled connectivity to emerging technologies like industrial IoT, cloud computing, and smart cities.
Episode 2 in our What’s Next in 5G series delves into how Qualcomm Snapdragon X65 further extends Qualcomm’s mmWave leadership via the new Qualcomm QTM545 mmWave antenna module. The module features superior mmWave coverage and support 5G mmWave bands expected to commercialize — for a truly global 5G solution. In addition, Durga details the Snapdragon X65’s sibling, the Snapdragon X62 5G Modem-RF System — a 5G modem-to-antenna solution supporting Multi Gigabit downloads for mobile broadband services and fixed wireless applications.
10 Gigabit 5G allows us to dream big as we continue to build the 5G technology that continues to drive innovation.
