The Linley Group Releases First Report Exclusively Focused on Wireless Modem Silicon

Provides In-Depth Analysis of Chips That Connect Mobile Devices to the Cloud

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/28/13 -- The explosion in the use of smartphones is driving significant growth in wireless modem chips and has prompted The Linley Group to issue its first report exclusively focused on these devices. The Linley Group's new report, "A Guide to Wireless Modem Chips: First Edition," focuses on the cellular baseband and Wi-Fi markets, and closely examines two key technologies: thin modems and Wi-Fi combo chips.

"The need for anytime, anywhere access continues to drive growth in the wireless modem chip market," said Linley Gwennap, founder and principal analyst at The Linley Group. "We expect to see greater demand for Wi-Fi, and solutions that integrate multiple wireless technologies, such as Bluetooth, GPS and NFC, on a single chip. This report closely examines how these trends will impact the market in the coming years, and further extends our offering of reports covering the key semiconductor components used in mobile devices."

The cellular baseband market accounts for $20 billion in total revenue with 2.2 billion chips shipping in 2012. Of this amount, nearly 500 million were thin modems. In addition, suppliers shipped nearly one billion Wi-Fi combo chips.

The Linley Group identifies Qualcomm and Intel as the leading suppliers of cellular baseband chips. Qualcomm has led the market in its support of new cellular protocols, including LTE. The company has also integrated Wi-Fi and GPS into its baseband processors, giving it a strong competitive position in the wireless modem chip market.

The Linley Group believes that half of all handsets will ship with Wi-Fi by 2015, expanding the market for Wi-Fi combo chips. Today, Broadcom is the leading supplier in this market with 60 percent market share, and is well positioned for future growth with its strong Wi-Fi and GPS technology.

"Space Monkey by Vivent Smart Home is a product that is a distributed cloud-based edge storage network. Vivent Smart Home, our parent company, is a smart home provider that places a lot of hard drives across homes in North America," explained JT Olds, Director of Engineering, and Brandon Crowfeather, Product Manager, at Vivint Smart Home, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale. Cloud and cognitive technologies can help them leverage hidden data in SAP/ERP systems to fuel their businesses to accelerate digital transformation success.
DXWordEXPO New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City and will bring together Cloud Computing, FinTech and Blockchain, Digital Transformation, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps, AI, Machine Learning and WebRTC to one location.
In this presentation, you will learn first hand what works and what doesn't while architecting and deploying OpenStack. Some of the topics will include:- best practices for creating repeatable deployments of OpenStack- multi-site considerations- how to customize OpenStack to integrate with your existing systems and security best practices.
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.
