Qualcomm, Inc., a dealer in 3G and next-generation mobile technologies, announced a series of demonstrations at the Mobile World Congress 2011. The demo will feature the company’s next-generation mobile technologies and services designed to drive the most advanced mobile devices and experiences of today and the future.
Qualcomm claimed that it is elevating its role as a market leader by bringing breakthrough concepts to LTE’s (News - Alert) evolution. The company’s LTE Advanced uses adaptive interference management to further improve the capacity and performance of HetNets, which bring the network closer to the user through small cells such as picocells and femtocells. LTE Advanced can also enable carriers to leverage ultra wide bandwidths up to 100 MHz, supporting very high data rates.
Qualcomm (News - Alert) has named its enhancements in 3GPP R11 and beyond as HSPA+ Advanced and it can provide maximum performance in multiple 5 MHz carriers. The company offers mobile augmented reality in two forms: compass/GPS-based – that is deployed for navigation; and vision-based – a phone’s cam, display and its processor is utilized to recognize and augment what the camera sees.
Qualcomm maintained that its Snapdragon platform is designed for real-time ubiquitous computing with low power consumption for day-long battery life. And its WiPower is a new near-field magnetic resonance technology used to charge battery-powered devices such as smartphones and tablets.
The company asserted that the highlights of the Mobile World Congress exhibit include LTE Advanced, HSPA+ Advanced, augmented reality, devices based on the Snapdragon mobile computing platform, and WiPower.
Officials with the company exclaimed that Qualcomm is committed to driving ideas that make a difference in transforming the way individuals and communities live, work and play. They are excited to showcase some of the most advanced innovations in the wireless space, demonstrating how the proliferation of connected devices will enable a personal “Internet of Everything.”
