Analyst mocks Intel’s new LTE chip

Written by Nick Farrell

Will not make Qualcomm lose any sleep

Strategy Analytics analyst Sravan Kundojjala has said that Intel’s first multimode LTE modem chipset is a long way behind Qualcomm.

He warned that it will be difficult for Intel to get much LTE traction this year because Qualcomm has already gobbled up most of the design wins for devices. Kundojjala thought Intel was still lagging behind Qualcomm in terms of technology and in terms of OEM relationships.

Qualcomm's latest chips, such as its Snapdragon 800 series, support LTE Advanced capabilities, whereas Intel's chips do not. Qualcomm commanded 97 percent of LTE baseband market revenue in the first quarter of 2013 and has more than 450 LTE designs based on Snapdragon and Gobi solutions in the 2013 design pipeline.

However, Kundojjala said that Intel could start to gain traction in early 2014 in the mid-range and high-end range. The key for Intel will be integrated LTE modems with applications processors, he said.
