Qualcomm Business Model: A Formula for Innovation & Choice

This paper discusses how QUALCOMM develops new enabling technology through investment in R&D and strategic acquisitions and has fostered competition by broadly licensing the rights to use its patented technology. Further, QUALCOMM provides its customers the opportunity to easily and quickly develop and introduce their products by providing chipset and software solutions that integrate QUALCOMM's technology. Additionally, QUALCOMM has worked to reduce its customers' overall intellectual property costs and minimize intellectual property disputes within the industry through the cross-licenses it has obtained from a very large number of significant patent holders.
