Intel Corp. said Monday that it had completed the acquisition of the Infineon Technologies AG Wireless Solutions (WLS) business. With the acquisition, Intel will be able to accelerate development always-connected computing platforms that span a variety of device and market segments, including laptops, cars, smart phones, tablets and smart TVs.

The business enhances Intel’s existing communication portfolio with leading wireless mobility and cellular platforms, bringing together Intel’s strengths in WiFi and 4G WiMAX with WLS’ leadership in 2G and 3G, and a combined path to accelerate 4G LTE. Collectively these building blocks further support Intel’s move to serve a broader array of customers and market segments with best-in-class computing solutions founded on energy-efficient performance, Internet connectivity and security.

“As computing spreads across a range of connected devices, including new categories being created almost daily, we must be ready to support the next billion devices across multiple networks with smart, secure and seamless computing experiences. The acquisition brings to Intel a world-class wireless portfolio and a proven track record in cellular communications, combined with our existing strength in computing positions us well for future growth,” said Dadi Perlmutter, Intel executive vice president and co-general manager of the Intel Architecture Group.

The new wireless business will now be called Intel Mobile Communications (IMC) and will operate as a standalone business entity within Intel’s architecture group to enable continuity of existing customer sales, projects and support, including ARM-based products.

IMC will continue with its current business model of supplying leading-edge wireless and cellular platforms to its customers worldwide, in addition to support of Intel Core and Atom-based application processor platforms. The acquisition will further boost IMC’s capabilities as it now gains access to Intel’s technology investments, R&D, brand and global footprint.
