Qualcomm Wireless Business Solutions has formed a new subsidiary to provide wireless communications to European truckers.

The newly created eQ-COM, debuted its products and services at the European Road Transport Show in Amsterdam. It will launch commercial operations in four countries -- United Kingdom, Netherlands, Germany and Italy -- by spring.
In November, Qualcomm acquired certain assets of Simac Mobile Solutions bv, located in both the United Kingdom and Netherlands. The acquisition included Simac's workforce, certain intellectual properties, and fleet management hardware and software products designed for vehicle applications and mobile workers where real-time communication between the
field and home base is required.
eQ-COM hopes to leverage this technology, as well as Qualcomm's proven success as a wireless data provider, to be the leading single source provider of fleet-management solutions with Pan-European communications coverage.
