Intel Launches 4G LTE Modem For Tablets and Ultrabooks

Intel has announced availability of the chip XMM 7160 modem for mobile broadband supporting 2G, 3G and 4G-LTE for use on mobile devices or Ultrabooks.

The Intel XMM 7160 offers voice and data transmission multimode capacity for up to 15 frequencies simultaneously LTE, to count and a comprehensive LTE roaming.

The module is one of the solutions multiband and multimode LTE smaller and smaller consumption of the world, few are available for phones and tablets. This solution provides a smooth and seamless connectivity on 2G, 3G and 4G LTE, allowing support up to 15 simultaneous LTE bands and is compatible with the technology of voice over LTE (VoLTE).

Under a flexible RF architecture XMM 7160 is capable of running real-time algorithms for modulation of the voltage used and the tuning of the antenna. These capabilities possible to offer highly profitable multi-band configurations, increased battery life and LTE global roaming solution in a single SKU.

“As LTE networks continue to expand at a rapid pace, 4G connectivity will become an element that consumers expect to have on devices from smartphones and tablets will even own laptops,” said Hermann Eul, Intel Vice President and General Mobile and Communications Group. “Intel offers its customers a wide range of options for having a fast and reliable LTE connectivity, while offering a competitive catalog and great design flexibility for the mobile ecosystem.”

According to the manufacturer, the Intel XMM 7160 modem is used in LTE- version of the tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (10.1 ), which is already on sale in Europe and Asia.

Intel announces PCIe M.2 LTE wireless data modules expected to ship in 2014 tablet and Ultrabook designs from leading manufacturers.

In the coming year Intel plans to introduce a new generation of LTE, including the Intel XMM 7260 modem with support for LTE Advanced. The Intel XMM 7260 adds LTE Advanced features, such as carrier aggregation, faster speeds and support for both TD-LTE and TD-SCDMA.
