Intel to ship XMM 8160 5G modem in 2019 and devices in 2020

Intel announced the Intel XMM 8160 5G modem will be shipped in the second half of 2019.

Commercial devices using the Intel XMM 8160 5G modem are expected to be available in the first half of 2020.

XMM 8160 is designed to provide 5G connectivity to devices like phones, PCs, and broadband access gateways.

By supporting peak speeds up to 6 gigabits per second, XMM 8160 5G is three to six times faster than the latest LTE modems available today, Intel claims.

The multimode modem supports the new standard for 5G New Radio (NR), including standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) modes, as well as 4G, 3G and 2G legacy radios in a single chipset.

With single-chip multimode baseband capability, the Intel XMM 8160 5G modem will enable device manufacturers to design smaller and more power-efficient devices.

The multimode solution also offers improvements in power, size and scalability and supports simultaneous connectivity (EN-DC) for LTE and 5G.

The modem offers advanced technology needed to support new millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum as well as sub 6 GHz 5G NR support (including FDD and TDD bands from 600 MHz to 6 GHz) and download speeds up to 6 Gbps.

With worldwide carrier support, broad platform certification and broad OEM support, the Intel XMM 8160 modem delivers 5G capabilities that operators and device makers can rely on for their global deployments.

Intel XMM 8160 5G modem is expected to ship in the second half of 2019. Commercial devices using the Intel XMM 8160 5G modem are expected to be available in the first half of 2020.
