Qualcomm Integrates Wireless LAN Into Mobile Handsets
Posted on 23-Sep-2005 23:51. | Tags Filed under: News.



Qualcomm Inc will add Wireless LAN (WLAN) support to its Mobile Station Modem (MSM) chipsets, by supporting Philips' wireless local area network (WLAN) module. This integrated solution will offer connectivity to WLAN networks as well as to existing cellular networks and will feature compatibility with 802.11b and 802.11g protocols on both CDMA2000 and WCDMA (UMTS) networks.

The WLAN solution allows mobile handsets to use high-speed wireless local area networks when available for connections of up to 54 Mbps. Initially supported on the MSM6550 chipset, the 802.11b/g-compatible broadband capabilities enabled by Philips' WLAN module are scheduled to be commercially available by the end of 2005.

This WLAN technology offers support for applications such as voice over Internet protocol (VoIP), voice calls with simultaneous data transfer and other data-intensive applications.
