Qualcomm and Saudi Arabian company Dallah LLC have announced they have entered into a patent licensing agreement which covers multimode small cells. Under the terms of the agreement, Qualcomm has granted Dallah a royalty-bearing patent license to develop, manufacture and sell multimode small cells that use 3G, 4G and 5G technologies. The agreement is consistent with Qualcomm's established global licensing terms.

Dallah is owned by Dallah Al-Baraka group, a private multinational corporation based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The group has holdings throughout the Middle East, North Africa, Asia and Europe with investments including the financial banking, healthcare, real estate, manufacturing, transportation and operations and maintenance sectors. With this agreement, Dallah joins the growing list of OEMs in the world that have direct access to Qualcomm's breakthrough technologies.

John Han, senior vice-president and general manager at Qualcomm said "With access to our diverse and ever-expanding technology patent portfolio, Dallah will now be able to develop and market compelling 3G/4G/5G small cells powered by Qualcomm's leading mobile technologies both in Saudi Arabia and abroad."

Ammar Kamel, executive director of Dallah was equally enthusiastic when he said “Dallah Trans Arabia is more than excited to enter this strategic agreement with Qualcomm, the world’s leading mobile technology innovator. Backed by the ambitious Saudi Vision 2030, and a history of delivering mega projects, Dallah Trans Arabia will use this patent license agreement to develop, market and sell 3G/4G/5G multimode small cells powered by Qualcomm’s cutting edge technologies in the Middle East & North Africa region among other global regions.”
