MediaTek T700 modem successfully performs 5G standalone calls

HSINCHU, Taiwan – Aug. 6, 2020 – MediaTek today announced advances in its collaboration with Intel
to bring 5G experiences to next generation PCs with the successful development and certification of its
5G modem data card.
MediaTek’s T700 5G modem, which will be used in Intel-powered 5G PCs next year, completed 5G
standalone (SA) calls in real world test scenarios. Additionally, Intel has progressed on system
integration, validation and developing platform optimizations for a superior user experience, and is
readying co-engineering support for OEM partners.
“Our partnership with Intel is a natural extension of our growing 5G mobile business, and is an incredible
market opportunity for MediaTek to move into the PC market,” said MediaTek President Joe Chen.
“With Intel’s deep expertise in the PC space and our groundbreaking 5G modem technology, we will
redefine the laptop experience and bring consumers the best 5G experiences.”
The combination of Intel and MediaTek technologies is designed to seamlessly run compute-intensive
PC applications, be a powerhouse for multimedia users and deliver smooth, fast, lag-free performance.
MediaTek and Intel are both committed to delivering a superior user experience.
“A successful partnership is measured by its execution, and we’re excited to see the rapid progress we
are making with MediaTek on our 5G modem solutions. In our remote environment, 5G is poised to
further transform the way we connect, compute and communicate, and Intel is committed to enhancing
those capabilities on the world’s best PCs building on our 4G/LTE leadership,” said Chris Walker, Intel
vice president and general manager of Mobile Client Platforms.
The MediaTek T700 modem supports non-standalone and standalone Sub-6 5G network architectures to
deliver consistently faster speeds and more reliable connectivity. Whether consumers are at home or on
the go, they can browse, stream and game at ultra-fast 5G speeds. MediaTek’s modem is also highly
power efficient to extend the battery life of laptops so consumers can go longer in between charges.
MediaTek is rolling out its advanced 5G technology across the PC, mobile, home, auto and IoT segments
to make super-fast connectivity accessible to everyone.
The first products are planned for availability in early 2021. Dell and HP are expected to be among the
first OEMs to deliver laptops enabled with Intel and MediaTek’s 5G solution.
