WASHINGTON and SAN DIEGO, Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) today announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Life, Inc., is collaborating with new technology partners and customers who are leveraging the 2net™ Platform and Hub to enable wireless connectivity of medical devices and applications so that biometric information is easily accessible to device users, their healthcare providers and caregivers. The Company also announced that its 2net Platform and Hub, which are already available in the U.S. and Europe, are also now available in Canada. The announcement was made at the 2012 mHealth Summit being held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Washington, D.C., December 3-5.
"Qualcomm Life has expanded its footprint dramatically over the past year, and we now offer our customers and partners one-stop shopping for wireless enablement of their healthcare solutions across the greater part of two continents," said Rick Valencia, vice president and general manager of Qualcomm Life. "We are committed to providing solutions for our customers' wireless health challenges, and will continue to expand our services into other countries, prioritizing based on our customers' needs and business opportunities we identify."
The latest companies to join the 2net Ecosystem, comprised of nearly 180 technology partners and customers, are: Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM), HealthyCircles™, Valued Relationships Inc. (VRI), Tri-City Medical Center (TCMC), ActiveCare and MD Revolution.
Ingram Micro, the world's largest wholesale technology distributor and a global leader in IT supply-chain, mobile device lifecycle services and logistics solutions, is simplifying the deployment and use of mobile health technologies by delivering device aggregation and activation services that pair various wireless medical devices with a single 2net Hub. Ingram Micro's knowledge and expertise in logistics and distribution will also enable the 2net Ecosystem collaborators to achieve scale quickly and efficiently.
"The mobile health market is growing rapidly and we are seeing increased opportunity around machine-to-machine connectivity," says Paul Bay, acting president, Ingram Micro North America. "By leveraging Ingram Micro's global scale and the investments we've made to optimize and specialize our business around mobile, including the recent acquisition of BrightPoint, Qualcomm Life will be well positioned to build greater business efficiencies that can help accelerate demand for its 2net Platform and Hub and help drive down go-to-market costs."
HealthyCircles™, an enterprise software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution delivering integrated care coordination and management, will leverage the 2net Platform to enable patients and providers the ability to easily collect and monitor vital health information with actionable data that is readily accessible and shareable with a patient's care team.
"This strategic collaboration with Qualcomm Life will enhance the HealthyCircles offering with a comprehensive portfolio of wireless devices and seamless transmission of biometric data to enable proactive care management and care team coordination," stated James Mault, M.D. FACS, HealthyCircles' Founder and Chief Strategy Officer.
VRI and TCMC will leverage the 2net Hub to help further reduce hospital readmissions and advance patient care by delivering the 2net Hub to TCMC patients within 48 hours of discharge. ActiveCare, a leading provider of remote health solutions to employers and their health plans, is leveraging the 2net Platform and Hub to quickly capture and analyze patient data.
Also, the 2net Platform will help enable MD Revolution's SaaS solution, RevUp, a scalable wellness solution for corporations and physician practices that aggregates genetic and health data with mobile device data, automates the diagnostic process and provides an individual with a personalized treatment and wellness plan.
Qualcomm Life will be showcasing the 2net Platform and Hub with over 40 wireless health collaborators at the 2012 mHealth Summit in the Qualcomm Life Wireless Health Pavilion, and is participating in the following panels, demonstrations and speakerships:

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
