Qualcomm CEO: Wireless Broadband Faces Threats

Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs believes offshoring of manufacturing capabilities and eroding intellectual property rights pose as threats to the wireless broadband network development. Jacobs made the statement at the fall meeting of the National Association of Manufacturers, the biggest industrial trade organization in the US. He noted the continuing degeneration of young engineering talent in the country and called for improvements in patent protection laws as well as legislation that will extend educational aid to engineering programs. Jacobs also disclosed that the Federal Communications Commission has yet to decide on Qualcomm’s MediaFLO petition to hasten the launching of broadband mobile video service.
