You’ve probably seen the Qualcomm Advantage Network mentioned in many of our blogs, so we thought it was time to formally introduce it to you.
We assure you that Qualcomm Advantage Network isn’t a secret society or exclusive club. Rather, it’s a group of industry members – currently over 500– who work with chipsets and technologies from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. (QTI) across a wide spectrum of verticals. Best of all, any organization that offers, sells, and recommends our technologies can apply to join, as we’ll describe below.
Being a Qualcomm Advantage Network member brings several benefits to developers and their companies, including:
- A detailed profile page in the Member Directory and on Qualcomm.com web site
- Matchmaking opportunities with other companies to help accelerate innovation and business growth
- Joint marketing possibilities with QTI
- Technology and industry updates
- Education and insights
- Promotion, recognition, and recommendation of member’s Qualcomm based products on Qualcomm.com (e.g., see screen shot below). and Guest Blogs with QDN
More generally, membership is a great way to gain exposure and open networking opportunities with other industry players.
Network members include companies like hardware manufacturers, software developers, cloud solution providers, system integrators and design firms. They’re working in sectors like Automotive, Audio, Head-Mounted Display, IoT, Camera, Artificial Intelligence, Smart Cities, Wearables, RF Front-End (RFFE) Filters and extended Reality (AR/VR), and more.
Qualcomm Advantage Network offers several tailored ecosystem and accelerators programs that bring specialized focus and member benefits to specific verticals. For example, the Hardware Provider category includes the IoT Accelerator, Automotive Solutions Ecosystem Program, Wearables Ecosystem Accelerator , and several others.
In our recent blog: IoT Collaboration with the Veea Edge Platform and the Rural Cloud Initiative, we discussed our Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program member Veea. Through their membership, Veea built an ecosystem of technology players to bring connectivity and a rich platform to rural farms to optimize farming operations and Internet connectivity to underserved rural communities. This example shows how we can bring like-minded technology providers together for the greater good.
Finding and Filtering Members
Anyone visiting Qualcomm Advantage Network – member or not – can take advantage of the Member Directory to find specific companies through various filters. For example, you can easily search by category, vertical, region, etc.
To use this functionality, simply navigate directly to the Member Directoryor visit https://www.qualcomm.com/support/qan, scroll down to Find current member companies, and click on one of the category icons as shown below.
You’ll be redirected to the Member Directory page, pre-filtered by the category selected.
Once on the Member Directory page, you can easily adjust your filter by membership type, industries (verticals), regions, company type, and/or specialties (e.g., AI/ML, Audio, etc.). A few of these filter options are shown down the left side of the image below. The list of member profiles updates on the right as you select your filters.
You can also filter members based on the chipsets they are using by entering the name in the “Qualcomm Chipsets” field below the filters on the left (see image below).
As you start typing, the field provides chipset name suggestions and allows you to select multiple chipsets on which to filter. This can be useful to identify members who might be using the same chipset(s) as you, potentially opening up a common talking point on which to reach out to that company.
Once you click on a member in the list, you will see detailed profile information for that member, including an overview, enrolled category programs, contact information, product/service offerings, verticals, and more, as shown in the example below.
