Qualcomm has just announced that it is planning on building a new research and development center to push 5G innovations. This center will be situated in France and arrives after the company met with the local government’s officials.
As per an official Qualcomm announcement, Cristiano Amon, CEO elect and President of the company met with Agnès Pannier-Runacher, minister delegate for the industry in the French Government. This new research and development site will be a part of the company’s extensive R&D network and will also play an integral role by bringing in employees from the region to help develop 5G technology for the various markets across the globe.
The new 5G research and development facility also builds on “Qualcomm Communications SARL’s strong presence in France.” For those unaware, the chipmaking giant already has established facilities in the region for over 20 years. The new center is located in Lannion in Brittany and Issy-Les–Moulineaux in the Paris-Region. For those unaware, Lannion is a center for telecoms engineering excellence and a European technology hub.
John Smee, Vice President of Engineering in Qualcomm stated that “France already has a leading technical engineering infrastructure in place, so it is a natural fit for this new 5G R&D hub. The 5G R&D team will be working on advanced systems engineering to help define the future of 5G and beyond – and the new center is a tremendous opportunity for the individuals involved and for the company.”
