Qualcomm will receive IP royalties even if the company face competition from Apple in the future

Qualcomm skyrocketed after they announced an agreement with Apple. CEO Tim Cook was asked about the agreement with Qualcomm during Tuesday`s earnings call and he said Apple is satisfied with the resolution.

Qualcomm is the world`s leading chip designer for wireless technologies, including 3G and 4G/LTE, and the company wants to be the leader in 5G as well. The agreement means that Apple could offer a 5G iPhone as early as spring 2020.

“Were glad to put the litigation behind us and all the litigation around the world has been dismissed and settled. Were very happy to have a multi-year supply agreement and we`re happy that we have a direct license arrangement with Qualcomm that was important for both companies. We feel good about the resolution,”┬áTim Cook said on Tuesday.

The settlement also included a chipset supply agreement, and Qualcomm is expected to provide the 5G chips that Apple will need to introduce 5G connectivity in its 2020 iPhones. After the agreement, Intel said that they are dropping out of the smart phone modem chip market entirely, and they have no plans to manufacture 5G chips.

Apple will be licensing 5G IP from Qualcomm and other license holders under the Fair, reasonable, And Non-discriminatory (FRAND) terms established by ETSI throughout the 5th generation of wireless technology.

If Apple develops and integrates its own modem technology in the future, Qualcomm will not lose on that, but still receive IP royalties even if the company face competition from Apple. So, licensing for the 6th generation will depend on Apple`s participation in future standards efforts.

Qualcomm does not have its own manufacturing facilities like Intel and Samsung. Their chips are produced by contract manufacturers such as Taiwan semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), or provide licenses to produce and use its intellectual property in smartphones.

Qualcomm has been on the market for a long time. So have Taiwan semiconductor manufacturing Company. TSMC was the world`s first dedicated semiconductor foundry and has long been the leading company in its field.

Qualcomm was created in July 1985 and have 35,400 employees. Net income last year was US$4,86 billion. The company is expected to report earnings on 01 May, 2019 after market close.

5G is a new beginning and partly a turning point, but certainly nothing less than a revolution

The 2019 International CES show started today in Las Vegas, and it will end on Friday, 11 January. CES is the world`s gathering place for those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. It has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for 50 years.

This is the global stage where next generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace, and its owned by Consumer Technology Association (CTA). This gathering attracts the worlds business leaders and pioneering thinkers.

I have been following Apple for decades and I expect them to be in Las Vegas this week. We all know that AI is the future, but how is Apple`s innovation when it comes to Smart home tech? It seems like they are falling behind in the Smart home race.

Both, Google and Amazon are now integrating Alexa and Google assistant into Smart home devices. Voice assistants are cropping up in all kinds of places at CES 2019 and what I think is a cool thing to have is both voice and touchscreen in the bathroom mirror.

This Smart Mirror allows you to access Google Assistant were you can check the weather and traffic, or stream some YouTube videos while you are fixing your hear before you are going out for your next date.

Its brilliant because you have only two hands and none of them are free. Youre fixing your hair right. So, while you`re fixing your hair, you just have to ask the mirror what time it is, what the weather is or when your next bus is coming. All this without using your hands.

Everything is connected and to do so you need 5G, which is enabling the Internet of Things (IoT). Cars, heating systems and even trash cans are becoming involved in the net. 5G is super fast and makes the IoT possible. 5G is 100x faster than 4G and 10x faster than the best home-subscriber broadband service.

You need 5G to run your new driverless car and it`s all based on a computer with GPS built-in it. 5G is nothing less than a revolution. It is in such capacities that it becomes clear why the technologies from 2G to 4G differ so radically from the fifth generation, and that is awaiting us is partly a new beginning and partly a turning point, but certainly nothing less than a revolution.
