Qualcomm Unveils 10G Fiber Gateway Platform for Ultimate Connected Home PerformanceSeptember 20, 2023 | Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. is ushering in a new era of home connectivity, and new opportunities for service providers, with the introduction of the Qualcomm® 10G Fiber Gateway Platform and its signature feature, Qualcomm® Service Defined Wi-Fi technology.
The overwhelming majority of subscribers experience their broadband service through Wi-Fi. In today’s broadband systems, the access network from the service provider to the home and Wi-Fi within the home are managed separately - with a quality of service which is nearly impossible to maintain across the entire network, given the diversity of devices, applications, connectivity technologies, and the near-constant change across all these elements.
The Qualcomm Service Defined Wi-Fi technology addresses this management challenge by offering a unified data flow management architecture, from cloud to device. It delivers orchestration, classification, scheduling, and insights that help ensure subscriber performance expectations for 10G Fiber are met – adapting to user activity whether they are gaming, streaming, video conferencing or sharing content.
“Qualcomm Technologies has positioned itself to lead a revolution in connectivity,” said Rahul Patel, senior vice president and general manager, connectivity, broadband and networking. “By adding 10G Fiber to our technology portfolio, along with 5G and Wi-Fi 7, we now offer a compelling mix of solutions to help service providers drive revenue growth, service innovations, and deliver more immersive, and engaged subscriber experiences.”
“Qualcomm’s latest advancements in home gateways will help accelerate the ongoing transformation of home Wi-Fi networks,” said Andrew Spivey, Senior Analyst at ABI Research. “Given the rapid deployment of fiber-optic cable, alongside the concurrent decline of legacy cable and DSL technologies, the new platform is timely, and combined with Qualcomm’s Wi-Fi 7 technology will prove indispensable in delivering the advanced speeds modern homes require. We are also confident that Qualcomm’s Service-Defined Wi-Fi Technology will help underpin the home networking revolution through the enablement of guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS) for consumers.”
Qualcomm 10G Fiber Gateway Platform
The Qualcomm 10G Fiber Gateway Platform is architected to enable 10Gbps to and through the home. Its software-defined architecture combines 10G Passive Optical Network (PON) technology with multi-Gigabit Wi-Fi 7 connectivity to ensure high-speed connectivity and low-latency access can be delivered seamlessly through the home to end devices – such as phones, PCs, smart TVs, home cameras or appliances.
Featuring the Qualcomm Service Defined Wi-Fi technology, a groundbreaking cloud-to-device quality of service framework, the 10G Fiber Gateway Platform is designed to give providers unprecedented orchestration and insights to help improve their subscribers’ quality of experience.
The Qualcomm Service Defined Wi-Fi technology’s application-type orchestration is built to enable providers to create a new level of user experience based on reliable and fast end-to-end connectivity. Service providers will be able to offer differentiated services optimized for applications such as gaming, streaming, and employer-supported work-from-home optimized service.
The Qualcomm 10G Fiber Gateway Platform and Qualcomm Service Defined Wi-Fi technology are scheduled to be commercially available by summer 2024.
