Ahead of the 2018 Mobile World Congress (MWC) that will kick off in Barcelona on 26 February 2018, Intel has announced that it is collaborating with Dell, HP, Lenovo and Microsoft to bring 5G connectivity to Windows PCs with Intel® XMM™ 8000 series commercial 5G modems.
MWC attendees will get a sneak peek at a concept 5G-connected PC – a detachable 2 in 1 – connected by an early 5G modem and powered by the 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i5 processors.
In addition to 5G, Intel will also showcase the following innovations at their booth in Hall 3 at Stand 3E31:
- A thin PC with 802.11ax Wi-Fi – the next big thing in Wi-Fi – will be on display at Intel’s booth. 802.11ax builds enhanced levels of manageability and network efficiency, critical to building a connected future with 5G.
- eSIM functionality will also be on display at Intel’s booth. eSIM is an essential feature for connected PCs and Intel is working across the ecosystem to ensure end customers enjoy seamless out-of-the-box experiences.
