Announced at CES today, Intel made public their 5G solutions which they aim to launch within the first half of 2017. Intel’s 5G Modem (codenamed Goldridge) will support both sub-6 GHz and mmWave bands which gives it control over a wider radio spectrum allowing it to be customised for a variety of application scenarios. Autonomous driving and wireless broadband among others are expected to propel the application of 5G technology. We’d first heard of Intel’s 5G solution during IDF 2016 in mid-August and towards the end of August Ericsson was the first to announce the Ericsson AIR 6468 5G radio which was followed by Qualcomm announcing the Snapdragon X50 5G Modem in late October. All three competitors are expected to begin deployment in the second half of 2017.
