Qualcomm is working to connect systems with the upcoming Qualcomm VIVE tri-band WiFi device, which enables 802.11ac at 2.4GHz and 5GHz, as well as 802.11ad at 60GHz. Aberle said WiFi and LTE convergence, as well as use of licensed and unlicensed spectrum, will be critical to solving data challenges as the IoT proliferates. VIVE is scheduled to ship in 2H15.

In addition, Qualcomm will tackle the mobile health market with its 2Net wireless health platform, a "HIPAA-compliant end-to-end system that gets data from remote monitoring devices." Walgreens will use the Dev2 Net platform to power its mobile app. Two blood pressure cuffs and a glucose meter will use a Snapdragon chip. Qualcomm also partnered with Novartis for a Trials of The Future program; Qualcomm's Healthy Circles platform will help practitioners in these programs share information.

"There's a huge opportunity here in terms of reducing cost but also to increase access to healthcare in remote areas," Aberle said.

Qualcomm will continue to develop its auto industry partnerships with demonstrations of several Qualcomm-powered vehicles on the CES showfloor. A 2015 Cadillac XTS will showcase an Android OS running atop a Snapdragon auto platform, as well as LTE broadcast of streaming content and resonant wireless charging. A Snapdragon-powered 2015 Maserati Quattroporte GTS will run a QNX operating system and highlight different features around gesture and voice, as well as ADAS. Aderle said a 2014 Honda Accord will show Qualcomm-enabled wireless charging of an electric vehicle.
