QUALCOMM CDMA: SSL SUPPORT FOR MSM3300 AND NEXT-GEN PRODUCT LINES.

QUALCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq: QCOM), pioneer of Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) digital wireless technology, has announced Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) support for the QUALCOMM CDMA Technologies (QCT) line of Mobile Station Modem (MSM) solutions. To provide end-to-end security for wireless Internet transactions, QCT offers a high-performance implementation of SSL that enables security for wireless browsers and secure wireless applications.

The SecureMSM SSL software and supporting encryption algorithms are integrated into the Dual-Mode Subscriber Software (DMSS) that is bundled with QCT's MSM3300 integrated circuit solution, including the IFR3300, RFR3100, RFR3300, RFT3100 and SURF3300 devices. SSL support will also be included in upcoming MSM integrated circuit solutions covering all major global standards.

"We believe that end-to-end secure mobile commerce transactions add great value to wireless devices," said Johan Lodenius, senior vice president of marketing and product management for QUALCOMM CDMA Technologies. "For example, QCT's fully integrated SSL implementation enables direct and immediate access to Web-based financial services, allowing a user to complete a stock transaction wirelessly anywhere, instead of waiting until computer access or a broker is available."

CDMA provides greater security over the air than legacy systems such as AMPS. However, Internet access requires CDMA-based network sessions to traverse multiple independent wireline Internet systems. Therefore, even CDMA Internet sessions are subject to the same vulnerabilities as other Internet traffic once on the public network. The QCT SecureMSM SSL implementation is based on public standards and is compatible with major Web servers worldwide.

QUALCOMM Incorporated (www.qualcomm.com) is a leader in developing and delivering innovative digital wireless communications products and services based on the Company's CDMA digital technology. The Company's business areas include CDMA integrated circuits and system software; technology licensing; the Binary Run-time Environment for Wireless (BREW) applications development platform; Eudora e-mail software; digital cinema systems; and satellite-based systems including portions of the Globalstar system and wireless fleet management systems, OmniTRACS and OmniExpress.
