Mobile technology company Qualcomm Incorporated is planning to change its corporate structure. It says the reasons include improving its product delivery and protecting its patent portfolio from any claims that involve other parts of the company.
After the restructure there’ll be a new wholly-owned subsidiary called Qualcomm Technologies Inc (QTI). This business will handle Qualcomm’s research and development activities along with its product and services businesses, including the QCT semiconductor business.
