Qualcomm says the new X24 LTE modem is capable of supporting up to 7x carrier aggregation on the downlink and 4X4 MIMO on up to five aggregated carriers.

The 2 Gbps speeds were achieved by aggregating 100 MHz of spectrum across the bands 1, 3 and 7.

Qualcomm, a company that is well known for smartphone chipsets, has announced a new Snapdragon X24 LTE modem.

Qualcomm says its wireless edge services are created to meet the requirements of enterprise and industrial IoT customers to securely provision, connect and manage long life-cycles of smart wireless devices through their cloud platforms.

"This achievement demonstrates our continued LTE innovation, providing our customers with an unrivalled network experience and preparing our networks for future growth".

If you're heading down to MWC 2018, Qualcomm will be having a live demonstration at the event, alongside with partners that include Netgear, the Australian telco Telstra, and renowned Swedish networking and telecommunications company, Ericsson.

So says notorious tipster Roland Quandt (below), who claims that the successor to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 is now in development and will be the first chip to be built on the 7nm FinFET production process. However, Qualcomm isn't done with 4G LTE technology just yet, which is why it today is introducing the Snapdragon X24.

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), announced a new LTE IoT Software Development Kit (SDK) for the Qualcomm MDM9206 LTE IoT global multimode modem.

System capacity is further improved through support of Full Dimension MIMO, a form of massive MIMO that is foundational to 5G, reports Qualcomm. We can expect speeds up to 10 times faster than the average 4G network, he added.

"With the introduction of Qualcomm wireless edge services, we continue to evolve and augment our leading Snapdragon portfolio to better serve our expanding base of customers across many industries", Willenegger said.

THE AS-YET-UNANNOUNCED Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 will reportedly be the "world's first" 7nm SoC. This, Qualcomm said, is created to allow devices that feature its new modem to make use of all spectrum assets available from a mobile operator. When we connected the phone to the Internet, the mobile revolution was born.

The chipset giant has already started sampling the modem, with devices expected to hit the market by the end of 2018.
