QTI is transforming the in-car experience with technologies to connect cars and create a better, safer driving experience. Qualcomm Technologies has more than a decade of vehicle connectivity leadership, having delivered the first embedded 3G/4G solutions for automobiles, and QTI has now engaged with more than 40 connected car programs from more than 15 OEMs.

Today, there are more than 20 million connected vehicles deployed globally with QTI's Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ LTE and 3G modems, the most widely used wireless solutions for cloud-based entertainment, safety and security applications. The high speed, reliable connectivity provided by Snapdragon LTE modems is the cornerstone of next-generation, connected driver experiences, enabling navigation and infotainment services including real-time mapping, HD Video, multimedia streaming, gaming and more. Qualcomm Technologies' automotive solutions also include the Snapdragon 602A automotive-grade infotainment processor, Qualcomm Atheros' Qualcomm® VIVE™ QCA65x4 to support Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC), QTI's Qualcomm® WiPower™ wireless charging for consumer electronics in the car and Qualcomm Halo™ wireless charging for electric vehicles.

Intelligent Connectivity for Smart Cities

To help meet the needs of rapidly growing urban populations, QTI is delivering solutions for smart buildings, energy, infrastructure, transportation and other emerging municipal applications. The company is involved in more than 20 active engagements to provide smart, sustainable connectivity that helps cities modernize while reducing operational costs in areas including municipal Wi-Fi, water usage, recycling, lighting, transportation, energy and infrastructure. Cities around the world are implementing smart connectivity today, leveraging a full suite of QTI's solutions, including 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, and small cells, as well making use of the AllJoyn open source project from the AllSeen Alliance in various industrial applications.

Connected Health Care at Scale

Qualcomm Life is building a large mobile health ecosystem, with approximately 500 customers and collaborators including Cerner, AMC Health, Roche and Walgreens. With the 2net™ Device Connectivity Platform, the HealthyCircles™ Care Coordination Platform and now HealthyCircles Mobile, Qualcomm Life is making connected health a reality by enabling seamless care from the hospital to the home. Qualcomm Life's transformational 2net and HealthyCircles Platforms are providing the scalable infrastructure for a new generation of connected health solutions and reaching chronic disease patients who need chronic care management tools the most. These technologies allow secure and reliable sharing, transmission, and cloud-based storage of health information. By liberating vital health and biometric data, Qualcomm Life is developing solutions that enable continuous care, informed interventions, and better management of at-risk populations.

Enabling Interoperability Among Devices

The AllSeen Alliance, of which QCE was a founding member, is a cross-industry consortium dedicated to enabling and driving the widespread adoption of products, systems and services that support the Internet of Everything with an open, universal deployment framework. The Alliance now counts more than 140 companies among its members, including Electrolux, Haier, LG, Microsoft, Panasonic, Sony, LIFX, Honeywell and many others. The Alliance is committed to growing IoE through the adoption of the AllJoyn open source framework that is platform, OS and hardware agnostic to enable seamless device discovery, connectivity and interoperability. Today there are 75 AllJoyn-enabled products, services, and applications that have been announced by Alliance members. QCE continues to actively participate in the Alliance, and Qualcomm companies use AllJoyn to solve for interoperability in segments such as smart home and smart cities.
