Qualcomm: 2022 will be the year that 5G will finally connect everything
Qualcomm made many announcements at CES 2022. The company will work with Microsoft to develop chips for smart glasses; Apparently, these smart glasses are going to be released at the same time as Apple’s virtual reality headset. Qualcomm also demonstrated its solutions for next-generation cars that take the in-car infotainment system to the next level. Imagine playing 4K movies or playing a computer game on a giant screen in your electric car while on the move. These are just some of the features mentioned at this time, but it’s Qualcomm’s confidence in 5G potential, especially the faster millimeter-based version.
5G as a global technology
According to Digital Trends, Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon made the bold statement on stage that 5G, including its millimeter version, is a state-of-the-art technology that goes beyond connecting smartphones, PCs, augmented reality wearables, and gaming hardware. And smart devices will be connected to the Internet of Things. Amon shared an example of a small business operating in a confined space. Deploying 5G millimeters in such a workspace ensures that all devices take advantage of the extremely fast 5G speeds, use cloud computing, and distribute content to virtual partners as well as entertainment. Most importantly, all of these benefits can be extended to your home.
Say hello to 5G wireless fiber
Qualcomm’s chief executive said he envisions a world where 5G valley is available alongside WiFi as a source of direct access to the valley’s broadband. One of Qualcomm’s first partners in achieving this goal is AT&T, as the two companies are working on what the operator calls Wireless Fiber. Customer demand for these networks is increasing at home, at work and on the go. AT & T Communications CEO Jeff McAlfresh said:
To move forward, we focus on 5G as a core broadband direct access technology that connects different homes and devices.
