Qualcomm hunts for carrier support for MulteFire

Qualcomm is pushing its MulteFire technology aggressively. The MulteFire Alliance, which was founded in December 2015, includes heavyweights such as Ericsson and Nokia, and new members include Cisco, SoftBank, and Neul, a wholly owned subsidiary of Huawei. The group is slated to release the final technical spec for the technology later this year.

MulteFire backers seek wireless and cable constituents

Qualcomm's MulteFire technology, which achieves the basics of LTE-Unlicensed (LTE-U) and License Assisted Access (LAA) in the 5 GHz band without needing to own spectrum, has gained support and skepticism.

MulteFire needs support from wireless, cable to stand out amongst LTE-U, LAA and Wi-Fi

MulteFire later this year will see the release of its first technical spec. The unlicensed technology, which allows for LTE-like deployments in the unlicensed 5 GHz band without the need for a licensed spectrum anchor channel, is the raison d'etre for the MulteFire Alliance, an industry group that is quickly recruiting member support from mobile operators like SoftBank and network vendors like Cisco.

Qualcomm takes wraps off 5G NR sub-6 GHz prototype platform

While a great deal of attention has been given to higher-band spectrum for 5G in the United States, Qualcomm is busy showing off a 5G New Radio (NR) prototype system and trial platform for the sub-6 GHz spectrum bands.

Qualcomm expands support for cellular-based IoT technologies

Qualcomm Technologies is wasting no time touting its advanced solutions for supporting low power wide area (LPWA) LTE technologies after the 3GPP last week said it had completed the standardization of three LPWA technologies within Release 13 (LTE Advanced Pro) specifications: NB-IoT, eMTC and EC-GSM-IoT.

Qualcomm, MulteFire Alliance on the hunt for wireless, cable members

MulteFire is the key to driving LTE without a license. Qualcomm's technology, which achieves the basics of LTE-Unlicensed (LTE-U) and License Assisted Access (LAA) in the 5 GHz band without needing to own spectrum, has gained support and skepticism. But will MulteFire find footing in the wireless, cable or broadband industry when it competes with so many similar technologies?

Qualcomm claims China's Meizu violated its patents

Qualcomm said it filed a complaint against Meizu claiming the small Chinese smartphone vendor used the San Diego-based chipmaker's patented technologies in its 3G and 4G handsets without paying for them.

Qualcomm proffers solution to improve uplink speeds

While LTE network download speeds have steadily improved over the years, the same cannot be said of upload speeds. In fact – and this may come as a surprise-- they haven't improved one iota, according to Qualcomm, but that's about to change.

Cisco, Neul join MulteFire Alliance

While the MulteFire Alliance is hosting an Open Day and Technical Workshop in Beijing today, the organization has announced that Cisco and Neul, a subsidiary of Huawei, have joined the alliance.

Intel reportedly to replace Qualcomm in some new iPhone models

Some models of the next iPhone will include modems from Intel, according to  Bloomberg, marking a long-overdue win in mobile for the chip maker.
