Audi's in-car 4G LTE wireless broadband powered by Qualcomm's chipset

Qualcomm said in a release, Audi A3 with 4G LTE wireless connectivity is powered by its the second generation Gobi multi-mode 3G/4G LTE chipset, the MDM9215.

“Audi was the first automaker to highlight the potential for LTE connectivity in vehicles at CES 2012 and now becomes the first automaker to announce a commercial model with embedded 4G LTE connectivity,” said Ricky Hudi, chief executive engineer of electrics/electronics, Audi AG. “As a highlight, we will soon be offering a fully integrated LTE link for our Audi connect services in the new Audi A3 in 2013.”

“We hope to introduce to automobiles the same 4G LTE connectivity that Qualcomm brought to today’s leading smartphones and mobile computing devices,” said Kanwalinder Singh, senior vice president of business development, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “The capabilities of the MDM9215 chipset allows Audi to define a new in-car media experience, including viewing and interacting with content on the head unit as well as on passengers’ own Wi-Fi-connected smartphones and tablets, all at 4G LTE speeds.”
