SANTA CLARA, Calif. – EdgeQ, a 5G systems-on-a-chip company, announced today that Dr. Paul Jacobs and Matt Grob have joined the advisory board. As a former Chief Executive Officer and executive chairman of Qualcomm, Dr. Jacobs is a highly respected leader in the cellular space for many decades, having developed and commercialized fundamental mobile technology breakthroughs that fueled the wireless internet and smartphone revolutions from 2G to 5G. Grob previously spent over two decades at Qualcomm and served as Chief Technology Officer and executive vice president of technology. Their involvement with EdgeQ will further strengthen key leadership positions as the company nears delivery of the industry’s first fully open and programmable 5G platform this year.
The wireless infrastructure industry is undergoing a sea change where the cellular stack is becoming disaggregated and virtualized.
