"Broadcom today announced a new wireless networking standard called 802.11ac. They’re calling it fifth generation and plastering the 5g moniker on it. This should cause a lot of strife and confusion in the wireless space, as this is 5g Wi-fi, not 5g cellular."
Broadcom announced Wednesday that it is formally ending its aggressive pursuit of Qualcomm.
The company also said it is withdrawing its slate of nominees it had presented for Qualcomm's board.
The US president Donald Trump has blocked Singapore-based telecom giant Broadcom from acquiring Qualcomm Inc, the Whitehouse said in a statement.
