Qualcomm says that it’s goal is to deliver unprecedented performance and mobile experiences across smartphone tiers

Qualcomm Technologieshas launched a portfolio of mobile connectivity systems that the company claims represent the most advanced Wi-Fi 6E offerings of their kind. The Qualcomm FastConnect 6900 and Qualcomm FastConnect 6700 mobile connectivity systems feature up to 3.6 Gbps Wi-Fi speeds on a mobile Wi-Fi offering, VR-class low latency and Bluetooth advancements delivering audio experiences for classic and emerging LE Audio use cases. 

“Wi-Fi Alliance members have mobilized around 6 GHz in an unprecedented way, and we’re excited to see Wi-Fi 6E solutions rapidly coming to market with the availability of new unlicensed spectrum in the U.S.,” said Kevin Robinson, Senior VP of Marketing, Wi-Fi Alliance. “Solutions like these from Qualcomm will help users fully experience Wi-Fi in 6 GHz and quickly benefit from faster speeds, higher capacity, and lower latency applications.”

The new portfolio extends Wi-Fi 6 feature implementations into the 6 GHz band. Key features include:

Improved Wi-Fi Speed:

  • FastConnect 6900 offers Wi-Fi 6 speed, up to 3.6 Gbps. Qualcomm claims that this is the fastest of any mobile Wi-Fi offering in the industry.
  • FastConnect 6700 delivers peak speeds approaching 3 Gbps.

Driving this performance for both FastConnect systems are differentiated features such as:

  • Qualcomm 4K QAM (2.4, 5, 6 GHz) – an implementation of this modulation technique can extend the maximum QAM rate, across any supported band, from 1K to 4K for enhanced gaming and ultra HD streaming.
  • 160 MHz channels support in both 5 and 6GHz bands, expanding throughput while reducing congestion.

FastConnect 6900 delivers an extra boost of performance through additional unique feature implementation of 4-stream Dual Band Simultaneous (DBS) with multi-band (including 6 GHz) capabilities.

FastConnect 6900 and 6700 integrate Bluetooth 5.2 with the latest audio advancements for greatly improved wireless experiences.

The FastConnect 6900 and 6700 solutions are sampling now and are forecast to ship in production during the second half of 2020.
