Qualcomm and Infinite Announced Strategic Collaboration
Qualcomm and Infinite Computer Solutions announced a strategic collaboration to promote the adoption of smart cities solutions and deliver Internet of Things as a Service (IoTaaS) for plug and play deployment. The collaboration creates an end-to-end, fully managed solution that facilitates digital transformation for smart connected spaces across government, healthcare, construction, entertainment, transportation, manufacturing, retail and logistics.
The IoTaaS offering connects companies in the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program using Infinite's intelligent engagement platform Zyter SmartSpaces. By connecting members looking for smart solutions, the Smart Cities Accelerator program aims to enrich lives through the accelerated transformation of critical infrastructure and services. As part of its collaboration with Qualcomm, Infinite will further the advancement of smart connected spaces by leveraging its expertise in platforms that support digital transformation, security, user experience, analytics, collective intelligence and AI.
“The challenges governments face as they try to make their cities smarter are often large and complex, and when combined with the fragmentation common in the IoT space, they can be extremely difficult to overcome,” said Jeffery Torrance, vice president, business development of IoT at Qualcomm. “Utilizing our experience in wireless, 5G, and IoT technologies and Infinite’s expertise as a digital transformation systems integrator, our off-the-shelf IoT platform is designed to provide a connectivity fabric and alleviate the enormous burden of sourcing, developing and integrating a variety of technologies along with the cost effective means to manage and monetize their IoT solutions."
“We’re thrilled to take this next step with Qualcomm to deliver end-to-end digital transformation to connected ecosystems,” said Sanjay Govil, chairman and founder at Infinite. ”The combined strength of Qualcomm’s extensive Smart Cities network and the Zyter SmartSpaces Platform will provide an effective, modular, secure and versatile solution to meet Smart Space management needs across all industries, globally.”
