Intel 4G LTE Modem Smartphones

Intel might have given up on TV, but the company is looking to take the smartphone world by storm with the introduction of its first 2G, 3G and 4G LTE data modem, the Intel XMM 7160. The new modem will support 15 LTE bands simultaneously to allow for global LTE roaming, and is also capable of voice-over LTE (VoLTE). The modem has been in testing for quite a while but will be commercially available for the first time in the 4G version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, which has already started shipping in Asia and Europe. Intel also announced new PCIe M.2 LTE modules to allow for data connectivity in other devices, such as tablets and ultrabooks. These modules should begin shipping next year.
