San Jose, CA. Aquantia and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. will launch the consumer premises equipment (CPE) platform featuring the Aquantia AQtion Multi-Gig Ethernet Controllers AQC107 (10GbE) and AQC111C (5GbE), supplementing the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 5G modem.

“For more than 30 years, Qualcomm has provided foundational wireless technologies that help to transform industries. We are continuing that legacy by providing a robust platform designed to support seamless 5G connectivity in the connected home and enterprises, powered by our second-generation Snapdragon X55 5G modem with support for both mmWave and sub-6 GHz spectrum bands,” said Qualcomm’s Senior Director of Product Management, Gautam Sheoran. “We are excited to work with Aquantia, as the use of our 5G connectivity platform with their Multi-Gig wired backhaul in the connected home and enterprises can help support the growth of connected devices and provide unsurpassed user experience.”
