Qualcomm Reinforces 5G Drive, Opens R&D in France
Qualcomm Communications SARL, a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, has announced plans to open a new 5G research and development (R&D) center in France to work on the future evolution of 5G and beyond. The new internal R&D facility joins Qualcomm Incorporated's extensive R&D network and will play a key role in Qualcomm employees driving the development of 5G locally, regionally, and globally.
The 5G R&D center builds on Qualcomm Communications SARL's strong presence in France, as the company has had existing facilities both in Paris-Region and Sophia Antipolis for more than 20 years. The new center will be co-located in Lannion in Brittany and Issy-Les-Moulineaux in the Paris-Region. Lannion is a center for telecoms engineering excellence and a European technology hub. Qualcomm Communications SARL has been working with the French Government to augment Lannion as a leading telecom engineering hub and retain top talent and technological expertise in this area.
Enrico Salvatori, Senior Vice President and President, Qualcomm Europe/MEA, Qualcomm Europe, Inc., said, "This new center will serve to further strengthen our R&D capabilities within the European region and help us to remain at the forefront of technology innovation globally. Our new 5G R&D facility in France joins our European network of R&D facilities. The work done in each of our European R&D facilities has worldwide impact."
