Qualcomm Announces Chipset with Support for Next-generation Release 9 HSPA+

-- MDM8225 Chipset to Support HSPA+ Release 9 Data Rates of up to 84 Mbps --

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM) today introduced its newest Mobile Data Modem(TM) (MDM(TM)) chipset for use in mobile broadband data devices, the MDM8225(TM). This new MDM will support HSPA+ Release 9, the latest version of the popular mobile broadband standard, which incorporates technology enhancements that help the chipset deliver data rates of up to 84 Mbps on the downlink. The MDM8225 will be fabricated using the 28nm technology node.

"Dual-carrier HSPA+ has proven to be a popular standard with mobile network operators who are now looking to improve their wireless networks' performance by adopting the latest version of the technology," said Cristiano Amon, senior vice president of product management for Qualcomm. "Qualcomm's new chipset will allow device OEMs to develop high-performance, low-power and small-form factor devices, such as USB modems or portable WiFi hotspots that take advantage of the higher data rates provided by HSPA+ Release 9. We are excited to be working with T-Mobile USA to deliver 84 Mbps HSPA+ capability in 2012 with the MDM8225."

"Qualcomm is one of T-Mobile's key strategic partners that supports our ongoing drive to take the HSPA+ ecosystem to 84 Mbps and beyond," said Neville Ray, chief technology officer, T-Mobile USA. "We look forward to continuing to work with Qualcomm to stay at the forefront of wireless innovation with new and compelling 4G devices and services."

The new chipsets will support HSPA+ MIMO antenna technology simultaneously with HSDPA carrier aggregation on the downlink to deliver higher data rates to users. The dual-carrier HSDPA feature will also support aggregation of carriers from different frequency bands and will give network operators greater flexibility in the use of their allocated radio spectrum to deliver doubled data rates for faster mobile broadband connectivity. Additionally, MDM8225 will support dual-carrier HSUPA operation to double uplink user data rates. The MDM8225 chipsets will support the latest Qualcomm Interference Cancellation & Equalization (Q-ICE) receiver, a feature that removes interference in a cellular network to increase network capacity and enhance the mobile broadband user experience.

The new chipsets will integrate a dedicated processor that will allow OEMs to develop new product classes and services at a lower cost. For example, OEMs will be able to develop WiFi hotspot products without requiring an external application processor. The MDM8225 will pair up with the WTR1605 radio frequency IC and PM8018 power management IC to provide a highly integrated chipset solution.

The MDM8225 chipset will support all major 3GPP radio bands, including the 1800 MHz band. As operators plan to refarm their 1800 MHz spectrum to provide for additional data capacity, the MDM8225 will add to Qualcomm's family chipsets that will support HSPA+ in the 1800 MHz band.

Samples of the MDM8225 are anticipated to be available in Q4 2011.

As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility.
This month @nodexl announced that ServerlessSUMMIT & DevOpsSUMMIT own the world's top three most influential Kubernetes domains which are more influential than LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, Medium, Infoworld and Microsoft combined. NodeXL is a template for Microsoft® Excel® (2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016) on Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10) that lets you enter a network edge list into a workbook, click a button, see a network graph, and get a detailed summary report, all in the familiar environment of the Excel® spreadsheet application. A collection of network maps and reports created with NodeXL can be seen in the NodeXL Graph Gallery, an archive of data sets uploaded by the NodeXL user community.
Because Linkerd is a transparent proxy that runs alongside your application, there are no code changes required. It even comes with Prometheus to store the metrics for you and pre-built Grafana dashboards to show exactly what is important for your services - success rate, latency, and throughput. In this session, we'll explain what Linkerd provides for you, demo the installation of Linkerd on Kubernetes and debug a real world problem. We will also dig into what functionality you can build on top of the tools provided by Linkerd such as alerting and autoscaling.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
Technology has changed tremendously in the last 20 years. From onion architectures to APIs to microservices to cloud and containers, the technology artifacts shipped by teams has changed. And that's not all - roles have changed too. Functional silos have been replaced by cross-functional teams, the skill sets people need to have has been redefined and the tools and approaches for how software is developed and delivered has transformed. When we move from highly defined rigid roles and systems to more fluid ones, we gain agility at the cost of control. But where do we want to keep control? How do we take advantage of all these new changes without losing the ability to efficiently develop and ship great software? And how should program and project managers adapt?
