BlackBerry Limited provides wireless communications solutions worldwide. The company’s existing and new product and service offerings include BlackBerry Enterprise Service (BES) 10, BES12, BlackBerry 10 smartphones, BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) services, and the cloud-based BlackBerry Internet of Things Platform (the BlackBerry IoT Platform). The company’s wholly-owned subsidiary includes QNX Software Systems Limited (QNX). Businesses The company’s four core areas of business focus are as follows: Devices business The company offers choice to both the enterprise and consumer markets through a portfolio of QWERTY and full-touch smartphone products. The company has entered into a joint device development and manufacturing agreement with Foxconn Technology Group (Foxconn). The initial focus of this partnership resulted in the development of the BlackBerry Z3, an all-touch BlackBerry 10 smartphone designed for Indonesia and other markets. The partnership also delivered the BlackBerry Classic, a device targeted for BlackBerry loyalists. This device features classic BlackBerry features such as the QWERTY keyboard, track pad and utility belt and classic BlackBerry user experiences and battery life. Enterprise Services The company has released the next-generation BES12 platform, which unifies support for BBOS and BlackBerry 10 devices, together with that for iOS, Android and Windows Phone. The BES12 platform delivered significant enhancements, including enhanced multi-platform support, an enhanced architecture for on-premise and cloud deployments, and backwards compatibility allowing unification of prior versions of BES. BES12 allows businesses to manage the IT trend of securely supporting multiple devices and operating systems, as well as employees’ personal devices, within a single corporate IT infrastructure. The acquisition of Movirtu Limited (Movirtu) led to the announcement of the WorkLife by BlackBerry solution to provide a virtual SIM allowing the only true carrier grade split billing solution for mobile devices. WorkLife by BlackBerry allows an enterprise to provision a work phone number and data plan onto a BYOD device. BTS business The BTS business comprises five units: QNX, Certicom, Paratek, the BlackBerry IoT Platform, and Intellectual Property and Patent Licensing (IPPL). QNX is a provider of operating systems, development tools, and middleware for the automotive, medical, industrial, consumer, networking, and defense markets. QNX automotive customers include Audi, BMW, Chrysler, Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, Land Rover, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Toyota, and Volkswagen and approximately 40 original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in all. QNX is also a preferred supplier for companies building medical devices, train-control systems, industrial robots, hardware security modules, building automation systems, green energy solutions, and other safety-critical applications. Certicom specializes in applied cryptography and key management, offering both software components and end-to-end security solutions targeted at bandwidth and resource-constrained applications. Paratek designs, develops and licenses its adaptive RF antenna tuning technology. Paratek technology has been adopted by six smartphone OEMs. The BlackBerry IoT Platform connects data generators with data consumers via an intelligent platform and application service modules, all hosted on a multi-tenant network protected by BlackBerry's security features. The BlackBerry IoT Platform intends to focus initially on applications for asset tracking, the connected car and the healthcare industry. The IPPL unit manages a patent portfolio, with an average and median remaining life of 12 years. The IPPL portfolio includes a blend of both standards essential patents and implementation patents.
