Bringing Blazing-Fast Gigabit Speeds to Global Customers with a Single,Powerful SKU

Feb. 21, 2017 — Cellular connectivity has expanded our world – breaking down barriers in how wecommunicate with the people we care about, the ways we collaborate and work, and how we enjoy andpay for content and services. Today, with the announcement of the Intel® XMM™ 7560 modem, Intel isintroducing an LTE modem as global as the population and economy it serves. Our fifth-generation LTEmodem, the Intel XMM 7560 modem builds on a tradition of fast speeds, low latency and radioinnovation – delivering gigabit speeds in a single, global SKU.

Delivering advanced voice and data connectivity, the Intel XMM 7560 modem is the first LTE modem tobe manufactured on Intel’s 14nm process. The modem supports LTE Advanced Pro for downlink up toCategory 16 with speeds exceeding 1 Gbps, and Category 13 for uplink with speeds of up to 225 Mbps.The modem’s architecture has been optimized to enable link level integration of LTE and Wi-Fi withenhanced power improvements and in-device coexistence capabilities.

The Intel XMM 7560 modem supports 5x carrier aggregation for downlink up to 100 MHz combinedbandwidth, and 3x for uplink up to 60 MHz for high-speed data services. With the additional support of4x4 MIMO and 256QAM, it’s not just fast, it’s agile – opening new opportunities to deliver gigabit datarates to customers, while simultaneously creating network efficiencies.

Beyond speed and flexibility, the Intel XMM 7560 modem offers scalability. Intel’s advanced Intel®SMARTi™ 7 transceiver supports up to 35 LTE bands, enabling customers to build mobile devices withglobal coverage leveraging a single SKU. The Intel SMARTi 7 RF transceiver and the Intel XMM 7560platform are capable of supporting up to 230 carrier aggregation combinations. The Intel SMARTi 7transceiver’s design and advanced interference mitigation techniques delivers significant dataconnectivity, signal quality and performance for a better mobile experience.

Size and power efficiency are also key benefits of the Intel XMM 7560 modem, which offers envelopetracking and other power optimization features to help extend battery life within a wide range of formfactors, from smartphones and phablets to tablets and PCs.

The new product expands Intel’s portfolio of LTE solutions, giving device manufacturers a competitiveoption to quickly design and launch LTE devices in multiple market segments and regions worldwide.The Intel XMM 7560 modem is a strong addition to Intel’s broad portfolio of connectivity solutions in4G, NB-IoT, Wi-Fi, WiGig and 5G – offering an end-to-end communications roadmap for the industry asit moves to 5G.
