Qualcomm to Russia

SAN DIEGO, California () -- Qualcomm announced Thursday that it was the first company to receive Russian approval to sell a specialized wireless telephone system there.

The hi-tech firm will supply local wireless telephone systems that can be rapidly deployed and expanded over diverse terrain and weather conditions.

The Russian Federation's approval for Qualcomm's system is good for three years and can be renewed. Company officials said the system would be used in Moscow and other areas of Russia.

The company did not say how much it would invest in the system.
