Qualcomm has been ranked as the top firm in ABI Research’s latest Commercial Vehicle Telematics In-Cab Hardware Vendor Matrix. It is the third time Qualcomm has been ranked No. 1, having achieved the top spot in the two previous rankings, released in 2006 and 2008.
According to ABI, the Vendor Matrix is an analytical tool designed to provide understanding of vendors’ positions in specific markets. Vendors are assessed on the important parameters of “innovation” and “implementation” across several criteria unique to each vendor matrix.
“Qualcomm Enterprise Solutions maintains its top ranking thanks to its high market share, organizational health, regional coverage, quality and reliability, advanced commercial navigation functionality and its innovative MCP100/200 Mobile Computing Platform addressing the emerging demand for revenue-generating driver empowerment and productivity,” said Dominique Bonte, Telematics practice director.
To meet the “innovation” criteria, ABI considered the following aspects of each company’s solutions: user interface, features, navigation, vehicle monitoring/sensors, and convergence and standization.
To determine its “implementation” criteria, ABI considered: pricing, market share, vertical segments, regional coverage, hardware configurations, organizational health, and quality and reliability.
