Qualcomm is driving the development, launch, and expansion of 5G.
Qualcomm and the story of 5G.
5G is the new mobile standard after 4G, and it’s designed to provide more connectivity than ever before. 5G is bringing ultra-high-speed connection with greater reliability and lower latency. These improvements will advance the entire mobile ecosystem, open the door to new industries, and improve experiences for end users. Qualcomm invented underlying technologies that make 5G work, and we’re continuing our leadership role in the rollout of 5G by paving the way for a future that leverages the endless potential of this breakthrough technology.
We’re making 5G possible and driving the mobile ecosystem forward.
Qualcomm leadership is evident everywhere you see 5G. In fact, Qualcomm has worked on the major changes in the mobile industry from 2G to 5G. Our innovation breakthroughs, which began years ahead of the industry, are driving the 5G standards—and the benefits that define 5G including speed, responsiveness, and capacity. Our products are accelerating the development of 5G, and our work behind the scenes is enabling the growth of the broader 5G ecosystem.
5G is creating new experiences, new industries, and enriching lives.
Qualcomm is applying 5G to three primary types of connected services. The first is enhanced mobile broadband. It makes our smartphones faster, more reliable, and allows for new immersive experiences like extended reality. Next are mission-critical communications that leverage the improved reliability and low latency of 5G for remote control of critical infrastructure, vehicles, and medical equipment. And, finally, we’re using 5G innovation to enable massive IoT that seamlessly connects virtually everything from smart home devices to smart cities.
