Qualcomm (NASDAQ: QCOM ) Technologies, a subsidiary of Qualcomm Inc ., unveiled its latest '10G Fiber Gateway Platform' and a cloud-based 'Service Defined' Wi-Fi solution on Wednesday. The company's new offerings aim to transform connectivity in homes and businesses, with commercial availability expected by summer 2024.

The 'Service Defined' Wi-Fi platform is designed to optimize the use of newly installed fiber optic cables and emerging technologies like Wi-Fi 7. It will provide a unified data flow management system that can adapt to various user activities, including gaming, streaming, and video conferencing. This technology will offer service providers unique orchestration and insights, improving subscriber experience. It will facilitate the provision of differentiated services optimized for various uses.

Moreover, Qualcomm's new platform promises to enhance the performance of wireless networks for service providers and enterprise customers. It will offer tools that can boost network performance by enabling service providers to manage network access to the home and Wi-Fi within the home concurrently. This integrated approach is expected to enhance the quality of service across the network.

Alongside its 'Service Defined' technology, Qualcomm's 10G Fiber Gateway will provide 10Gbps connectivity "to and through the home," using 10G Passive Optical Network (PON) tech and multi-gigabit Wi-Fi 7.

Ganesh Swaminathan, VP and GM of Qualcomm's wireless infrastructure and networking business, emphasized that the new platform would allow service providers to extend service level agreements to the Wi-Fi network. This means they can program the gateway to deliver precise services, potentially improving Wi-Fi connection performance in areas such as latency as network conditions change.

The company's new software-based Wi-Fi management platform is versatile enough to run on various access networks. These include fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP), hybrid fiber/coax (HFC)/DOCSIS, and fixed wireless access (FWA). Qualcomm's latest venture into the broadband gateway field is primarily focused on fiber.
