NVIDIA’s Icera modem approved for AT&T’s LTE network


NVIDIA has announced today a big step forward for their Icera 410 multimode data modem. The LTE modem, which will be coupled with future multi-core processors, has been tested and validated for AT&T’s network. This doesn’t mean we will see the chip in an AT&T release any time soon, but it will make the process of developing and testing devices using the Icera modem for AT&T all the easier.

Aside from LTE, the Icera 410 provides HSPA+, 3G, and 2G connectivity all from the same piece of hardware and can achieve category 2 data rates up to 50Mbps.


SANTA CLARA, Calif.—May 24, 2012—NVIDIA today announced that the NVIDIA® Icera® 410 LTE multimode data modem chipset for tablets and clamshell devices has been tested and validated for operation on the AT&T 4G LTE network.

AT&T qualification tests help ensure that product manufacturers can confidently select chipsets that integrate with connected devices and can quickly achieve final product qualification.

“Validation with AT&T is an achievement that paves the way for NVIDIA Icera-powered LTE devices on the AT&T network through this year and next,” said Stan Boland, senior vice president of Mobile Communications at NVIDIA.

The NVIDIA Icera 410 LTE modem delivers lightning-fast web browsing, video streaming and multiplayer gaming to tablets and clamshell devices. It is the first Icera modem to implement 4G LTE in NVIDIA’s software defined radio baseband processor. Together with its multimode radio transceiver, the chipset offers 4G LTE at category 2 data rates (up to 50 Mbps) as well as 4G HSPA+,3G and 2G compatibility

  1. I hit 58 mbps download on Verizon a lot in this one area by me on Verizon’s network.

  2. Where did you get that speed Aaron?
    Fastest speed I’ve ever gotten was like 38mbps on Vzn LTE in Lv.

  3. Beaverton Oregon. I even took screen shots. It’s always really good in this area for some reason. I don’t think many people use 4g LTE phones in Beaverton/Portland area yet because most people are on cricket, Sprint or t Mobile.
