Connecting more elements than ever to create smarter cities.

Qualcomm Technologies’ smart city solutions enable intelligent network connectivity and edge processing solutions in cities across the globe. Our full suite of wide-and local-area connectivity processing technologies including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G LTE and small cells help bring efficiency, safety and innovation to fast-growing urban environments. By addressing challenges within city infrastructure, energy, transportation and buildings, we are helping to develop sustainable solutions that minimize total cost of ownership—and position cities with an eye to the future.

Discover the advantages of developing with our smart city solutions.

Our smart city development approach contains three main elements. First, we reuse existing systems such as mobile broadband networks. Second, we reimagine existing infrastructure to derive additional value. Third, we transform single-purpose devices into multipurpose devices to maximize efficiency. And we do all of this seamlessly by utilizing the following key principles:

Security interoperability

Data can move freely across various technologies that utilize state-of-the-art security within city functions such as lighting, transportation and infrastructure, allowing for more intelligent communication. 

Edge processing

By putting more processing power and intelligence where data is transferred and received, systems can be made more efficient through local command and control versus moving massive amounts of raw data through the cloud.

Deploying at scale

Our comprehensive, integrated solutions can be used in a wide range of applications, enabling customers to address multiple segments and support reduced product development costs, integration time and design complexity.

Smart Cities Accelerator Program

The Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program is designed to connect cities, municipalities, government agencies and enterprises with an ecosystem of providers offering Qualcomm Technologies-based solutions. Program members represent a breadth of hardware and software providers, cloud solution providers, system integrators, design and manufacturing companies, as well as companies offering end-to-end solutions with Smart Cities in mind.
