LTE Advanced Lands in Qualcomm's Chip Roadmap
Qualcomm today announced a new series of modems that support HSPA+ Release 10 — including 84Mbps dual carrier HSDPA — and LTE Advanced. All three of the new modems support these technologies, and two (MDM9225 and MDM9625) also support LTE Carrier Aggregation / LTE Category 4, with data rates of up to 150Mbps on the downlink. These two chips are also backward compatible with cdma2000 (1X, DO), GSM/EDGE, UMTS (WCDMA, TD-SCDMA) and LTE (both LTE-FDD and LTE-TDD). All three modems are expected to sample later this year and reach production in the fourth quarter.
I thought LTE-A hasn't been standardized yet?
