Qualcomm and Infinite collaborate on delivering smarter spaces

Qualcomm Technologies and Infinite Computer Solutions, have announced a strategic collaboration to promote the widespread adoption of smart cities solutions and deliver Internet of Things as a Service (IoTaaS) for plug and play deployment.

The collaboration creates an end-to-end, fully managed solution that facilitates digital transformation for smart connected spaces across government, healthcare, construction, entertainment, transportation, manufacturing, retail and logistics.

The IoTaaS offering will connect companies in the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program using Infinite's intelligent engagement platform – Zyter SmartSpaces – to enable a full suite of offerings that will look to address the complexities around developing secure, smart, connected spaces across vertical industries, worldwide.

The Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program, launched in 2019 as part of the Qualcomm Advantage Network, is designed to connect cities, municipalities, government agencies, and enterprises with an ecosystem of providers to help deliver greater efficiencies, cost savings, safety and sustainability.

As part of its collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies, Infinite will further the advancement of smart connected spaces by leveraging its expertise in platforms that support digital transformation, security, user experience, analytics, collective intelligence and artificial intelligence (AI). Infinite brings its Zyter SmartSpaces innovation-driven software and integration platform to further the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program mission by fostering the rapid development, deployment and lower cost of maintenance of smart cities.

The end-to-end digital solution platform addresses the key challenges of developing smart cities, smart enterprises, and makes IoTaaS a commercial reality by leveraging Qualcomm Technologies’ full suite of technologies to enable sensor devices supporting edge computing and intelligence, data management systems, hardware-based security, AI/ML applications, and the latest connectivity technologies with a path to 5G proliferation, along with a complete dashboard with central control and a command management system with the flexibility to meet businesses’ and governments’ customised needs.

“The challenges governments face as they try to make their cities smarter are often large and complex, and when combined with the fragmentation common in the IoT space, they can be extremely difficult to overcome,” said Jeffery Torrance, vice president, business development of IoT, Qualcomm Technologies. “Utilising Qualcomm Technologies’ deep rooted experience in wireless, 5G, and IoT technologies and Infinite’s expertise as a digital transformation systems integrator, our off-the-shelf IoT platform is designed to provide a connectivity fabric and alleviate the enormous burden of sourcing, developing and integrating a variety of different and disparate technologies along with the cost effective means to manage and monetise their IoT solutions."
