Intel Set To Showcase Its New 5G Modems For PCs At MWC


Livestreaming video will be shown over a 5G network during the MWC.

At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week, Intel is taking things a step further with the announcement of new 5G-connected Windows 10 PCs. These Windows PCs will be powered by Intel XMM 8000 series commercial 5G modems.

Intel reportedly plans to show off the first machine with this functionality at Mobile World Congress next week, in the form of a 2-in-1 concept laptop PC.

While 5G is yet another jump in wireless connectivity, it will bring with it the capability to do mass data-intensive workloads while outside the office.

Trump backs effort to improve gun background checks - White House
Federal law enforcement officials say Trump's posting misstates how the FBI actually works. He added that the government should focus on "evidence-based solutions" to gun violence.

The PCs with built-in 5G will use Intel modems and will be available by "holiday 2019". Imagine being out in a field office, where you will have the ability to connect to a high-speed network wirelessly or being able to use 5G instead of having to run copper/fiber to a remote office; truly wireless offices may become a reality with this new technology.

And on the Wi-Fi front, the company is set to showcase an ultra-thin PC which boasts 802.11ax connectivity, the next big step forward for Wi-Fi. The device will utilize the next generation of Wi-Fi tech, which is 802.11ax.

Intel and industry partners are delivering innovative solutions for 5G with a foundation of Intel architecture, including the record-setting Intel Xeon Scalable platform and the recently announced Intel Xeon D-2100 system-on-chip (SOC) processor.

Intel's 5G push will also be extending to the Chinese mobile market.

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump hosted students and parents at the White House for a raw, televised listening session. He finished his address by saying: "To stop a bad guy with a gun, it takes a good guy with a gun".

But Intel isn't only focused on PCs; it will also have 5G solutions for smartphones, which is the category that will likely see the most widespread adoption of the next generation wireless standard.

PCs, of course, are not the only clients that will be smart and connected in the 5G era.

The development of such devices is critical for Intel, which is in a race with Qualcomm and Samsung to be the provider of choice for 5G modems. We expect Spreadtrum to launch its first 5G smartphone platform featuring an Intel XMM 8000 series modem in the second half of 2019.
