Intel Mobile Communications Group Integrates Infineon Wireless

Intel completed its acquisition of Infineon Technologies' Wireless Solutions (WLS) business.



The deal expands Intel's current Wi-Fi and 4G WiMAX portfolio to include Infineon's 3G capabilities. Intel said the acquisition also accelerates its entry into LTE.



WLS is a leading provider of cellular platforms to top-tier global phone makers, and is part of Intel's strategy to accelerate always-connected computing platforms that span a variety of device and market segments, including laptops, cars, smart phones, tablets and smart TVs.



"As computing spreads across a range of connected devices, including new categories being created almost daily, we must be ready to support the next billion devices across multiple networks with smart, secure and seamless computing experiences," said Dadi Perlmutter, Intel executive vice president and co-general manager of the Intel Architecture Group. "The acquisition brings to Intel a world-class wireless portfolio and a proven track record in cellular communications, combined with our existing strength in computing positions us well for future growth."



The new wireless business will now be called Intel Mobile Communications (IMC) and will operate as a standalone business entity within Intel's Architecture Group to enable continuity of existing customer sales, projects and support, including ARM-based products.http://www.intel.com
