MWC 2018: Intel Will Bring 5G to Mobile PCs Next Year

Intel is continuing to build new products and collaborations for 5G across the network, client and cloud. Ahead of MWC, the company has announced it is collaborating with Dell, HP, Lenovo and Microsoft to bring 5G connectivity to Windows PCs with Intel XMM 8000 series commercial 5G modems. Intel expects the first high-performing 5G-connected PCs to surface in the market in the second half of 2019.

Mobile World Congress attendees will get a first sneak peek at a concept 5G-connected PC, a detachable 2 in 1 connected by an early 5G modem and powered by 8 Generation Core i5 processors. At MWC, Intel will showcase the power of 5G on a PC by streaming live video over the 5G network. This concept is one of many stepping stones for moving the industry forward in what’s possible for 5G-enabled PCs.

At MWC, Intel will also showcase the latest steps it has taken to build toward a more connected future with 11ax, the next big thing in Wi-Fi. They will also present eSIM functionality. Intel is investing deeply across its wireless portfolio and partners to bring 5G-connected mobile PCs to market, with benefits for users, like high-quality video on-the-go, high-end gaming, and seamless connections as users traverse Wi-Fi and cellular networks.
