According to the company, the agreements focus on Qualcomm Atheros' AR4100 and AR4100P WiFi solutions, designed for machine-to-machine applications, and include collaborations with Future Electronics for distribution to customers in North America, Japan and Europe.

In addition, the deal includes RTX to develop custom modules, drivers and value-added software, and Card Access Engineering for development of custom driver and demo hardware. Qualcomm Atheros' IOE portfolio features advanced, standards-based wired and wireless technologies that enable scalable IP infrastructure for smart energy, intelligent home, security, building automation, remote health and wellness monitoring, and other machine-to-machine (M2M) applications.

The Qualcomm Atheros AR4100 is a small form-factor, single-stream, 802.11n WiFi system-in-package (SIP) device that enables manufacturers to reduce M2M system costs and simplify system design. The AR4100P is an enhanced version of the FCC-certified AR4100 that includes an integrated IPv4/IPv6 TCP/IP stack enabling lower system costs and easier technology adoption.
