When will today’s fast be tomorrow’s slow?
In a truly connected world, everything will talk to everything. Your car. Your home. Every appliance and device you own. Together they’ll form a single network that’s fiber-like fast and flexible enough to meet your every need. At Qualcomm, our innovations in wireless technology are extending the boundaries of connectivity farther than ever imagined. This is just one more way we’re bringing the future forward faster.
We often do what many thought was impossible.
That’s how often people around the world touch something made better by Qualcomm. It could be the smartphone in your pocket, the tablet on your coffee table, that wireless modem in your briefcase… it could even be that navigation system in your car or that action camera strapped to your chest.
Who is Qualcomm, and what do we do? We are engineers, scientists and business strategists. We are from many different countries and speak many different languages. We come from diverse cultures and have unique perspectives. Together, we focus on a single goal—invent mobile technology breakthroughs.
