Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Qualcomm Life, Inc., is launching 2net™ Mobile, a 2net Platform gateway offering, at the Uplinq 2013 developer conference taking place in San Diego, California, on September 3-5, 2013. 2net Mobile is one of the first solutions to enable seamless aggregation of clinical data from multiple medical device sensors into one unified stream on a variety of mobile phones and tablets, and transmission of that data in a system designed to meet HIPAA security requirements. Along with this launch, the 2net Mobile Software Development Kit (SDK) has been made available to developers who intend to commercialize 2net managed services through their applications.
2net Mobile is a software module designed to enable Android smartphones, tablets and other data-capable devices to take on the gateway functionality of the 2net Hub. The 2net Hub, which launched in December 2011, delivers short-range radio flexibility, security, interoperability and seamless data transfer, while serving as the information highway for machine-to-machine connectivity for wireless medical devices into and out of the home. 2net Mobile will allow this connectivity to extend beyond the home so that users can securely monitor and transmit their readings while on-the-go.
“Our objective with the launch of 2net Mobile is to further support our customers’ business strategies in remote patient monitoring, while enhancing the ability to innovate on the 2net Platform,” said Rick Valencia, vice president and general manager, Qualcomm Life. “Through its open approach to connectivity, transmission and aggregation of data on mobile phones and tablets, 2net Mobile improves the capability of users to monitor their health anytime, anywhere.”
2net Mobile is a white-label solution that is offered by Qualcomm Life’s enterprise customers directly to their own end users. Enterprise customers include healthcare service providers, health device manufacturers and accountable care organizations (ACOs). The 2net Mobile software module is made up of two different applications. One is the 2net Mobile Core that communicates with biometric sensors, acting as a library, and interfaces with the 2net Mobile Application, which has a user interface. The two apps are separate, enabling eligible customers to build their own application around the 2net Mobile Core, adding their own features and functionalities. The 2net Mobile Core is FDA listed as MDDS (Medical Device and Data Systems) Class 1, Class I MDD and CE Registered in Europe, and Class I in Canada.
Along with this launch, the 2net Mobile SDK has been made available to developers. The SDK enables developers of mobile applications on the Android platform to build applications using the tools provided by the SDK and offer seamless connectivity to an open ecosystem of biometric sensors supported by 2net Mobile, through their applications.
Qualcomm Life will be showcasing 2net Mobile as well as the latest company news at the 2net kiosk in the Qualcomm® Developer Network Expert Bar at Uplinq 2013. Additionally, Qualcomm Life will be participating in the following panels and keynotes:
