Qualcomm has introduced Qualcomm 10G Fiber Gateway Platform, designed for broadband service providers to deliver optimized in-home connectivity with application-aware Wi-Fi 7 subscriber experiences in a modular form factor to fit their network and deployment types.
Qualcomm 10G Fiber Gateway Platform
The Qualcomm 10G Fiber Gateway Platform will enable 10Gbps to and through the home. Its software-defined architecture combines 10G Passive Optical Network (PON) technology with multi-Gigabit Wi-Fi 7 connectivity to ensure high-speed connectivity and low-latency access can be delivered seamlessly through the home to end devices – such as phones, PCs, smart TVs, home cameras or appliances.
Featuring the Qualcomm Service Defined Wi-Fi technology, a groundbreaking cloud-to-device quality of service framework, the 10G Fiber Gateway Platform is designed to give providers unprecedented orchestration and insights to help improve their subscribers’ quality of experience, said the company.
The Qualcomm Service Defined Wi-Fi technology’s application-type orchestration is built to enable providers to create a new level of user experience based on reliable and fast end-to-end connectivity. Service providers will be able to offer differentiated services optimized for applications such as gaming, streaming, and employer-supported work-from-home optimized service.
Availability, Charter and EE partnership
The Qualcomm 10G Fiber Gateway Platform and Qualcomm Service Defined Wi-Fi technology will roll out commercially by summer 2024.
Charter Communications has announced a partnership with Qualcomm for a next-generation Advanced Wi-Fi router that will bring Wi-Fi 7 and 10 Gbps Wi-Fi capabilities to Spectrum Internet users.
EE has also announced that it will roll out new in-home hardware in the future that will feature Qualcomm Wi-Fi 7 platforms for consumers across the UK, enabling them to be amongst the first in the world to get access to the next generation of Wi-Fi.
Advanced Wi-Fi routers with Wi-Fi 7 are expected to be available to Spectrum customers in 2024. EE Wi-Fi 7 router will also launch in 2024.
