QUALCOMM Incorporated Announces Executive Changes

Qualcomm Incorporated announced the appointment of Sunil Lalvani as vice president and president of Qualcomm India, and the departure of Avneesh Agrawal, senior vice president and president of Qualcomm India and South Asia. Lalvani's appointment will be effective July 27, 2015 and he will report directly to Cristiano Amon, executive vice president and co-president, Qualcomm Technologies Inc. Lalvani has more than 20 years of experience in sales, business development, strategic planning and business operations across the IT and telecom sectors. He joins Qualcomm from BlackBerry, where he served most recently as managing director of India and SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation). In this role, Lalvani was responsible for overseeing and driving BlackBerry's overall business strategy and growth in India and was focused on driving differentiated solutions for consumers and enterprise customers. Lalvani was also instrumental in leading a strong engagement with Carrier partners and ISV's in India, to drive uptake of BlackBerry's services portfolio in the India region. Prior to that, Lalvani held the position of Director of Enterprise Sales. Lalvani also has worked at EMC Corporation, Nokia Corporation, Cisco Systems and SITA Equant Network (now Orange Business Services).

Qualcomm Incorporated and Partners Develop LTE Unlicensed Technology

Qualcomm Incorporated and its wireless industry partners, have announced that they are developing LTE Unlicensed technology, which can reportedly increase mobile users' download speeds by transmitting data over both licensed and unlicensed spectrum. It incorporates the superior attributes of 4G LTE Advanced and integrates spectrum sharing tools to ensure fair sharing with all other unlicensed uses including Wi-Fi. LTE Unlicensed takes advantage of 4G LTE Advanced features to support a 1000X increase in data traffic by enabling densification of service provider networks using small cells, deployment of more spectrally efficient technologies, and aggregation of licensed and unlicensed spectrum resources to provide greater capacity for smartphones and tablets, and provide consumers with a far better user experience. LTE Unlicensed brings into the unlicensed realm for the first time certain attributes from cellular to support successful wide scale deployments, which will enable service providers to provide an improved level of service in the face of increased traffic demands. LTE Unlicensed incorporates a number of tools, such as channel sensing and listen-before-talk type techniques, to ensure that it shares spectrum fairly with other unlicensed uses like Wi-Fi.

QUALCOMM Reconsidering The Splitting Of Business Units

QUALCOMM Incorporated (NasdaqGS:QCOM) said it has bowed to pressure to reconsider splitting up its two main business units, one that designs chips and one that collects patent-license fees on smartphones. "We're just taking a fresh look," said Mollenkopf, who has previously argued that the two units complement each other. Such a division could deprive the chip-design business of cash for research and development, and might potentially starve the patent unit of new inventions made by its engineers.
