Opportunities to leverage wireless and personal computing devices to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of service delivery in health and education.
Low Cost Backhaul
Reducing the burden on core networks through innovative approaches to backhaul, focusing on underlying technologies (e.g. compression, scheduling), and the business models under which access is delivered (e.g. QoS, shared access)
Sustainability and Green Technologies
Improving the power efficiency of portable devices, along with core innovations that drive green production and recycling.
While a representative from Qualcomm participates in the selection committee for review of companies applying to participate in the EvoNexus incubator program, EvoNexus determines the actual selection of companies.
