Qualcomm, a step towards the connectivity of the future at MWC 2022


Qualcomm Technologies today announced the world's most advanced Wi-Fi + Bluetooth connectivity system: FastConnect 7800. This connectivity solution marries the power of high-speed, ultra-low latency Wi-Fi with the latest Wi-Fi 7 specification and delivers a host of Bluetooth audio advancements that raise the level of consumer expectations for sound quality. >
FastConnect 7800 introduces Multi-Link High Band Simultaneous (HBS) technology - the premium capability for Wi-Fi 7 networks that unlocks the vast potential of multiple 5GHz and 6GHz connections to deliver the highest throughput and most sustained low latency, reserving high traffic 2.4GHz spectrum for Bluetooth and lower bandwidth Wi-Fi.

HBS Multi-Link is a Wi-Fi 7 signature implementation in FastConnect 7800 that leverages Simultaneously two Wi-Fi radios for four streams of high-bandwidth connectivity in the 5GHze / or 6GHz bands.

FastConnect 7800 supports all multi-link modes and with HBS Multi-Link so that consumers can experience latency and interference ri dotte at minimum, jitter-free connections on 320MHz channels in the 6GHz spectrum always or 240MHz channels in the 5GHz spectrum.

qualcomm Don't forget that Stream Dual-Band Simultaneous (DBS) can bring immediate benefits to today's networks. It is based on Qualcomm 4-Stream DBS (2 × 2 + 2 × 2) with 5 and / or 6GHz Wi-Fi links used simultaneously, to have low latency in performance between access point and client even in multi-client scenarios.

For example, a mobile device that connects to a Wi-Fi 6 / 6E access point will be able to connect simultaneously to an XE headset, without congestion of the 2.4GHz band.

Snapdragon X70 5G

Finally, the Snapdragon X70 5G Modem-RF System, which uses the first Qualcomm 5G AI processor. This offers new AI-powered technologies that can improve 5G data rates, coverage, latency and power efficiency for 5G Sub-6 GHz and mmWave devices.

The AI ​​capabilities built into the modem system -RF can improve 5G performance and user experiences in numerous ways, from average speeds to coverage, latency, mobility, link strength and power efficiency, with AI-powered dynamic optimization and channel status feedback.

Snapdragon X70 also introduces the new Qualcomm 5G PowerSave Gen 3, to reduce energy consumption and extend battery life. The processor helps achieve superior 5G performance across multiple networks globally. Customer delivery of the Snapdragon X70 is expected to begin in the second half of 2022, with the first commercial mobile devices arriving by the end of 2022.

Qualcomm Announces Snapdragon X70 5G Modem With AI-Optimized Connectivity For The Intelligent Edge

As is typically the case for Qualcomm each year at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, the world’s 5G innovator has unveiled its latest modem technology, dubbed Snapdragon X70. The new Snapdragon X70 5G Modem-RF (Radio Front End) system also harnesses the power of AI and machine learning for what the company claims are “breakthrough 5G speeds, coverage, low latency and power efficiency.” While the 5G infrastructure roll-0ut continues at an aggressive clip — the company also unveiling an expanded portfolio of Open RAN (Radio Access Networks) solutions as well — client devices will soon benefit from a myriad of AI-optimized performance enhancements that are critical for harnessing the full potential of 5G cellular connectivity in the years ahead.

Qualcomm X70 5G Modem RF Features

Taking the wraps off Snapdragon X70 today, Qualcomm is introducing what it claims is the worlds first 5G AI processor in a modem-RF system. Snapdragon X70 will deliver up to 10 Gigabit per second 5G download speeds, low latency, better network coverage and power efficiency. The complete 5G modem-FR solution will support both sub-6GHz and mmWave (millmeter Wave) 5G band connectivity with better link stability and AI-enhanced adaptive tuning features, including the following:

  • AI-based channel-state feedback and dynamic optimization
  • World’s 1st AI-based mmWave beam management for superior mobility and coverage robustness
  • AI-based network selection for superior mobility and link robustness
  • AI-based adaptive antenna tuning for up to 30% improved context detection for higher average speeds and coverage
  • Qualcomm AI Suite Features


    For me, these adaptive, machine learning-enhanced features are welcomed additions in the ever evolving landscape of 5G connectivity. With the large variation in network operator infrastructure and coverage in a very wide availability of spectrum from 600MHz to 41GHz, 5G modem responsiveness and contextual awareness of signal strength and available bandwidth is key. In short, 5 bars of 5G connectivity certainly doesn’t always mean multi-gig speeds, and the modem’s ability to beam manage, with the antenna’s ability to adjust tuning on the fly, is critical to both optimize speed and maintain and stable connection. Qualcomm is going further here with Snapdragon X70 as well, with what it claims is the world’s first 4X downlink carrier aggregation features for mmWave-sub-6 aggregation support. The solution also supports uplink carrier aggregation, as well as global Dual-SIM Dual-Active mmWave support, and future software update support for 5G Release 16 features.

    Standalone mmWave Support For Fixed 5G Wireless Access

    Another key feature of Snapdragon X70 is its support for Standalone mmWave 5G connectivity that will allow service providers and multi-network operators the ability to deploy fixed 5G solutions without the need for utilizing longer reach sub-6GHz spectrum. This is critical for the dense deployment of 5G mmWave customer prem access points, where a fiber backhaul from the base station might be available, for example, but the last mile to the customer is cost prohibitive. Here high bandwidth multi-gigabit 5G mmWave connectivity can be delivered to the customer with relative ease, negating the need for additional costly fiber rollout.

    Snapdragon X70, Built On Low Power 4nm Process With PowerSave Gen 3

    There’s no question high bandwidth 5G connectivity can be a power drain, so it makes sense that Qualcomm is continuing to drive that side of the equation in the right direction as well. As such, Snapdragon X70 will be built on an advanced 4nm (nanometer) chip fab process and employ the company’s 3rd generation PowerSave technologies such as AI-based adaptive antenna tuning that the company notes “dynamically optimizes transmit and receive paths across a comprehensive set of user scenarios and signal conditions to significantly reduce power consumption and extend battery life.”

    Finally, though it wasn’t specifically stated and the company doesn’t comment on future products, Qualcomm typically makes its latest modem technologies available as discrete solutions, as well as integrated solutions in its Snapdragon 8 series of Mobile Platform Solutions for smartphones and other devices. Qualcomm expects to begin sampling Snapdragon X70 in the second half of 2022 with commercial mobile devices launching late 2022.
