MediaTek teams up with NTU for 5G

Written by Fudzilla staff



Deployment post 2020

MediaTek is about to introduce its first 4G-enabled SoCs in a few weeks but the company is already thinking about 5G.

The chipmaker has teamed up with the National Taiwan University (NTU) to develop fifth-generation gear by the end of the decade. MediaTek believes 4G will not be able to meet demand after 2020, so it is high time to start working on 5G, Focus Taiwan reports.

The university sees the deal as a long-term opportunity to conduct research and employ its advanced technologies and talent for something useful. NTU Vice President Chen Liang-gee believes demand for mobile broadband will continue to increase in the foreseeable future.

There’s not much info on 5G development just yet, but South Korea appears to be leading the way and Samsung is also working on 5G gear, along with other communications firms and chipmakers.
