MediaTek has unveiled the T830 as a new platform for the router-, Mi-Fi-, or CPE-type devices of the future. It is Wi-Fi 7 capable, and can handle 4G, 5G, up-to-10Gb/s Ethernet or Wi-Fi 6/6E inputs as well. The SoC is also compatible with battery power, and is touted as light on power use in these cases.

MediaTek has completed its ‘ready for Wi-Fi 7’ platform event of today (August 18, 2022) with the T830, a chipset touted as ideal for the “fixed wireless access” alternative to conventional broadband that proponents of 5G insist will take over soon. It incorporates the modem necessary to deliver all its specs, as well as all the PMICs required to provide optional connections to I/O and peripherals.

They allow the T830 to be configured to support other similar devices such as routers, consumer premises equipment (CPE) and Mi-Fi-like products, even those intended to have 10 gigabit per second (Gb/s)  Ethernet.

MediaTek asserts that the platform covers all of their emerging demands with support for what seems like all of the wireless internet sources, standalone and non-standalone (SA/NSA) 5G, 4G/LTE FDD & TDD, and even dual-SIM dual-standby (DSDS; also 5G) included.

The T830 is also rated for GNSS geolocation and Bluetooth 5. Accordingly, MediaTek asserts that product OEMs will want to build any new connectivity-serving device they have in mind thanks to all these specs.

Accordingly, MediaTek suggests potential customers will love their oneday T830-based device too, with “multi-gigabit” (up to 7Gb/s, in practice) wired and wireless performance.

The SoC itself is clocked at 2.2GHz and also integrates an NPU, as well as as “dedicated QoS Acceleration and Tunneling Offload“.

Therefore, the next-gen router, physical hotspot or variation thereon could boast all these bells and whistles thanks to this upcoming MediaTek component.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
