Skyworks powers next-gen 4G/5G mobile hotspots

14 January 2019

Skyworks Solutions Inc. has announced that its SkyOne Ultra 3.0 portfolio is leveraged by Inseego, a developer of 5G and intelligent internet of things (IoT) device-to-cloud solutions, for their next-generation mobile hotspot. Given the significant growth in mobile subscribers and densification of data traffic — which will intensify with 5G — demand for portable, reliable anytime connectivity is rapidly increasing.

Skyworks’ compact, highly-integrated front-end system is being utilized in combination with Qualcomm’s LTE X20 modem to power Inseego’s MiFi 8800L device, the industry’s first commercially available gigabit LTE platform for Cat 18.

According to Zion Market Research, the mobile hotspot router market is expected to increase from approximately $2 billion in 2017 to more than $7 billion by 2024, a compound annual growth rate of 20%.
