Qualcomm Incorporated Research Reports
On July 30, 2014, Qualcomm Incorporated (Qualcomm) announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., has completed the acquisition of EmpoweredU -a pioneer developer of an intuitive, mobile-centric cloud-based learning environment that is both device and operating system agnostic. The integration of EmpoweredU with other education initiatives within the Company will help the latter to accelerate mobile innovation and 24/7 learning into education. Steve Sprigg, Senior Vice President, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc, said, "From the Company's long involvement in the education space, including nearly 40 education projects funded by the Qualcomm® Wireless Reach™ initiative since 2007, we've learned that providing students with 24/7 access to their peers, teachers and learning materials can dramatically improve learning outcomes. However, the digital divide continues to widen as there has not yet been a viable solution to address the gaps for those students without 24/7 access."

As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.

The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today.

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
