How Qualcomm Snapdragon compute platforms offer education solutions for today and tomorrow
There has been a rapid transition in education, from classroom learning for the majority of students to remote learning. This unprecedented shift has revealed many challenges that further expand the homework gap, including lack of access to the devices or connectivity needed to keep pace with today’s methods of learning and teaching.

At Qualcomm, our mission is to expand 5G to meet society’s needs and help industries take the next big leap forward. One of the most important sectors that stands to benefit from the promises of this new generation of wireless is education.
Axios' Ina Fried hosted a conversation on the potential of 5G and its capacity to disrupt everything from emergency response technology to sports, featuring Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg, Qualcomm President Cristiano Amon, Raleigh Mayor Mary-Ann Baldwin, Qwake Technologies co-founder John Long, and ORBI CEO Iskander Rakhman.
As automakers and regulators move closer to complete adoption of connected vehicles, and cities and other road owners ambitiously pursue smart and safe transportation, it is important to use a high performance and practical radio technology dedicated to road safety. We at Qualcomm Technologies believe Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) is the solution going forward.
5G is far more than just another mobile generation. It's also one of the biggest, most complex technological challenges of the past decade. This is the world's next great tipping point - when mobile technologies will become as inseperable from our lives as electricity, and as fundamental as the automobile. 5G is a complete paradigm shift.

In San Diego, the telecom giant Qualcomm has turned its sprawling campus into a showcase of the smart city of the future.
By Nate Berg
With 36 buildings, 25,000 employees, and hundreds of acres of land, the San Diego campus of telecommunications giant Qualcomm is almost a city in itself. That made it the perfect testing ground for a suite of new technologies aimed at making spaces and cities smarter. Over the past year, the company has been rolling out new technologies to its buildings, infrastructure, transportation, and security systems that offer a glimpse of how a tech-enabled smart city could operate.
A lot of people are talking about the race to 5G. In many ways, it’s a journey without a finish line since wireless technology is constantly evolving. Historically, the U.S. has held a leadership position, and that remains true for now. According to Deloitte, a leader in business intelligence, the country that prevails in the race to adopt 5G could secure more than a decade of competitive advantage.
Connectivity has never been more important, yet more than half of the world’s population is still missing out on its life-changing benefits, particularly in rural and developing regions. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the effects of this digital divide, as connectivity has become a lifeline for education, healthcare, work, and staying connected with loved ones. Further threatening equity in education is a scarcity of suitable devices for students to use in distance learning.
