5G, Internet of Things, autonomous driving, these fields have this company’s presence

Qualcomm, established in 1985, now has its business involved in all aspects of people's lives. Qualcomm has its presence in the fields of smartphones, integrated circuits, the Internet of Things, big data, software, and automobiles. The continuous advancement of their basic technology has also enabled countless hardware manufacturers to create more products that consumers and industry practitioners love to use on this basis.

So in the two days of May 21-22, Qualcomm held the 2021 Qualcomm Technology and Cooperation Summit at the Water Cube, reviewing the achievements in various fields, and let us have a clearer expectation for the future.

The commercial launch of 5G in 2019 has witnessed initial results in the large-scale deployment of 5G in China in just two years. As of the first quarter of this year, a total of 819,000 5G base stations have been built, and the number of 5G mobile phone terminal user connections has reached 285 million. China has initially built the world's largest 5G mobile network. The continuous collaboration of all participants in the industry chain has provided strong support to achieve this progress.

In order for 5G to benefit everyone, the importance of global partners is self-evident. An Meng, President and CEO-designate of Qualcomm said:

For the past 25 years, we have been cooperating with Chinese mobile ecosystem companies to support their domestic and global business expansion. Our basic technology and solutions bring you an excellent experience with high-performance, low-power computing and connectivity; in the future, Qualcomm will continue to invest in promoting the evolution of 5G technology and product roadmaps, and cooperate with the ecosystem to accelerate 5G in different verticals And provide comprehensive support to help our partners realize their great vision.

Anmeng will formally take over as CEO of Qualcomm next month, looking forward to Qualcomm's new blueprint.

Meng Pu, chairman of Qualcomm China, also said at the summit:

2021 is the starting point of a new decade. We deeply feel that the wave of innovation driven by the new generation of connection technology is coming. The wireless communication industry is ushering in the biggest development opportunity ever.

At this summit, Qualcomm reviewed the phased results they have achieved in the fields of semiconductor chips, communications, manufacturing, etc. Among them, the most closely related to the lives of our ordinary people are naturally the chips used in mobile phones. Now Qualcomm Snapdragon Mobile The platform has achieved full support for 5G at all levels of the Snapdragon 8 series to the 4 series. In other words, nowadays, whether you are buying a flagship high-end phone or a smart phone, you can use 5G technology.

The rapid spread of equipment technology makes people dizzying. This week Qualcomm also launched the new Snapdragon 778G chip, which quickly sinks the cutting-edge innovations supported by the Snapdragon 8 series to the high-end level, supports new experiences and promotes innovation.

As the first batch of manufacturers to adopt the Snapdragon 778G mobile platform, Honor Terminal CEO Ming Zhao attended and delivered a speech. At the meeting, it was announced that the Honor 50 series will be the first to be equipped with the Snapdragon 778G chip and will be released in June. In addition to Honor, iQOO, Motorola , OPPO, realme and Xiaomi have also announced the upcoming launch of new mobile phones equipped with platforms, and perhaps another wave of new phones will usher in June.

The new experience supported by 5G is not only reflected in mobile phones, including mobile PCs, automotive platforms, computing platforms for next-generation AR/VR, robots and various IoT terminals, and network infrastructure. Currently, more than 800 terminals equipped with Qualcomm's 5G solution have been released or are under design.

At the summit, Qualcomm also brought the latest progress in millimeter wave with its Chinese partners. Under the technical guidance of the IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group and China Unicom, ZTE, Qualcomm Technologies and TVU Networks adopted dual-connection technology of 26GHz millimeter wave frequency band and 900MHz LTE frequency band, and completed the world's first in a laboratory environment Demonstration of 5G millimeter wave 8K video backhaul service based on large uplink frame structure. The demonstration verified the importance of 5G millimeter wave's super uplink capability to meet the large uplink bandwidth requirements of many 5G industry applications in the future.

Qualcomm also announced this week that it will upgrade the features supported by Qualcomm's Snapdragon X65 5G modem and radio frequency system, including support for millimeter wave carrier bandwidths up to 200MHz and millimeter wave independent networking (SA) mode. The new millimeter wave features are The upcoming 5G millimeter wave deployment and 5G SA network construction in China and other countries and regions have laid the foundation.

Today, when 5G has increasingly highlighted its advantages, Qualcomm has also promoted the technological integration of 5G and AI. Industries including smart robots, industrial Internet of Things, and Internet of Vehicles are all using 5G+AI to achieve more efficient management and operations.

The reason why Qualcomm can achieve today's rapid development, in addition to its own strength factors, is also inseparable from the joint efforts of partners to open up the upstream and downstream ecology and help Qualcomm achieve spiral technology upgrades. In this regard, Qualcomm Ventures has something to say.

They announced at the summit to further expand their investment in China to continue to cultivate 5G+AI ecological innovation and explore the infinite possibilities of intelligent interconnection empowered by 5G. At the event site, Qualcomm also joined hands with more than 100 ecological partners to jointly display nearly 300 product and technology demonstrations, including Snapdragon flagship smartphones, Snapdragon XR devices to create a virtual world "more real than reality", and cutting-edge 5G , 5G millimeter wave + 8K live video, AI table tennis, smart robot Cafe, Snapdragon smart travel, industrial Internet of Things and other related technologies and application products.

Facing the future, Qualcomm has made preparations. The achievements in 5G, mobile phones, automobiles, Internet of Things, audio, XR and other fields demonstrated at this summit have entered all corners of our lives.

It can be said that Gaotong's computing cornerstone has paved the way for modern and future technological life. We also look forward to Qualcomm and its industry partners to bring us more surprises and satisfy mankind's endless dreams about the future.
