To recap, mmWave is a short-range, high-frequency network technology designed to really show off what 5G can do.

The company also noted that the M80 supports both non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) architectures with a peak rate of 7.67 Gbps and a downlink of 3.76 Gbps in uplink. This chip also has dual 5G SIM, dual 5G NSA and SA networks, and dual Voice over New Radio (VoNR) for more reliable connectivity.

The Taiwanese chipmaker highlighted that the 5G modem is ideal for a range of devices like smartphones, PCs, MiFi hotspots, broadband customer premise equipment (CPE), industrial IoT applications, and more.

It offers operators around the world support for a full range of radio access technologies:

  • 3GPP Release 16 standard
  • Sub-6 GHz and mmWave dual connectivity and carrier aggregation
  • 5G NR (FR1) with more than two carrier aggregation
  • 5G mmWave (FR2) up to 8CC
  • 5G carrier aggregation with Mixed Duplex (TDD + FDD)
  • Dynamic spectrum sharing (DSS) ready

This chip also has MediaTek's 5G UltraSave technologies for power-saving, Dynamic Bandwidth Part (BWP) tech to optimize bandwidth use, and Connected Mode DRX (C-DRX) tech to allow the modem to regularly remained powered in standby even when there is no data activity.

The M80 has been tested with industry standards and is expected to sample with customers later in 2021.
