At the recently concluded Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerate 2020 virtual event, the tech giant announced that Qualcomm IoT Services Suite will directly support smart cities and connected spaces innovation in order to deliver an end-to-end IoT Platform and IoT as a Service Across Multiple Verticals.
The event brought the Smart Cities and Smart Connected Spaces ecosystem — CIOs, CTOs, city managers, ODMs/OEMs, system integrators, mobile operators, and global technology solution providers — together to explore the most recent technology advancements, business models, and lessons for making Smart Connected Cities and Connected Spaces a reality.
According to the company, “Our Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator program membership has grown to ~300, with allocation of an initial $75 million from capital investment firms to jump-start projects. Additionally, we’ve made two additional announcements that directly support smart cities and connected spaces innovation: to deliver an end-to-end IoT Platform and IoT as a Service Across Multiple Verticals through our Qualcomm IoT Services Suite.”
As far as Qualcomm Smart Campus is concerned, the company announced that the official launch of its digitally transformed Qualcomm Smart Campus in San Diego. The campus replicates a smart city environment at the scale of a campus, featuring commercially available end-to-end solutions as implementation of a number of “smarts” — from lighting, parking, transportation, logistics, trash cans, and security. All campus capabilities can be viewed, managed, and controlled from the corresponding command center while providing insights and real-time data and activity across the many sensors. The vision for the Smart Campus is for it to be continuously reimagined and replicated, promoting sophisticated IoT technologies, AI, and 5G technologies to be customized to the needs of various industries and communities. Qualcomm further added that it couldn’t be more thrilled about this launch, and look forward to the innovations our ecosystem collaborators are helping to bring to life for commercial deployment.
Elaborating about its new solutions, Qualcomm Technologies and Infinite teams shared, “We are developing right now, including innovative AI-driven IoT applications using Zyter SmartSpaces IoT platform. They dove into “IoT as a Service” and how the Zyter SmartSpaces platform is enabling intelligent end-to-end digital transformation through the Qualcomm IoT Services Suite. With the ability to deploy rapidly across multiple verticals, these new solutions can unlock connected spaces and smart cities at large.”
Qualcomm also focuses on how connected spaces can create new areas for innovation and growth, and how the expansion of 5G supports and accelerates the advancements of these technologies.
