Sisvel gründet LTE-Patentpool

- Gemeinsames Lizenzprogramm soll Zugang zu grundlegenden Patenten verbessern

LONDON, 5. November 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sisvel hat einen neuen Patentpool eingeführt, der verschiedenste Lizenzen für grundlegende LTE-Patente enthält – den neuesten Mobilfunkstandard, der gemeinhin als 4G bezeichnet wird. Zu diesem Portfolio gehören Patente der EADS-Tochter Cassidian, der China Academy of Telecommunication Technology, des Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute sowie von France Telecom, TDF und KPN. Hinzu kommen weitere Patente, die ursprünglich von Nokia angemeldet und Ende 2011 von Sisvel übernommen wurden. Allen Unternehmen, die sich im Besitz von grundlegenden LTE-Patenten befinden, steht der Pool weiterhin offen. Sisvel arbeitet kontinuierlich mit weiteren Unternehmen zusammen, die ihr Interesse an einer Mitgliedschaft in der Gruppe bekundet haben.

Entsprechend den üblichen allgemeinen Geschäftsbedingungen ist das gesamte aktuelle Portfolio grundlegender LTE-Patente mit Sisvels Pool-Lizenz für eine laufende Lizenzgebühr von 0,99 Euro pro Gerät erhältlich. Nähere Informationen zur Portfolio-Lizenz erhalten Sie direkt bei Sisvel.

Jean-Francois Bernard, Leiter der Lizenzabteilung von France Telecom, lobte den neuen Pool als „Schritt nach vorn, von dem Telekommunikationshersteller, Betreiberunternehmen und Verbraucher profitieren werden, da er einen bequemen Zugang zu allen grundlegenden LTE-Patenten ermöglicht, die sich im Besitz des Pools sowie dessen Mitgliedern befinden."

„Bei unserer Zusammenarbeit mit Sisvel haben wir uns auf die Entwicklung einer effektiven und effizienten Lizenzstruktur konzentriert, die weitere Besitzer von grundlegenden LTE-Patenten dazu ermutigen soll, sich der Gruppe anzuschließen", so Eric Davalo, CTO der Abteilung Secure Communication Solutions bei Cassidian.

„Sisvels LTE-Pool bietet Lizenznehmern einen enormen Mehrwert", bemerkte Giustino de Sanctis, der CEO von Sisvel International. „Für Unternehmen, die sich im Sinne der gesamten LTE-Branche für niedrigere Lizenzgebühren einsetzen, ist dies eine hervorragende Gelegenheit, um ihre Position durch die direkte Mitwirkung bei dieser gemeinsamen Aktion zu stärken, anstatt sich mit individuellen Lizenzverhandlungen aufzuhalten."

Alle interessierten Parteien, die sich im Besitz von Patenten befinden, die für den LTE-Standard möglicherweise von entscheidender Bedeutung sind, werden von Sisvel herzlich dazu eingeladen, sich mit Sisvel in Verbindung zu setzen, um die Wesentlichkeit ihrer Patente durch die designierte unabhängige Bewertungsstelle des Pools überprüfen zu lassen.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Summit, Charles Kendrick, CTO and Chief Architect at Isomorphic Software, demonstrated examples of com...
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningful and actionable insights. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Paul Turner, Chief Marketing Officer at...
In his keynote at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Director of IoT Engineering at Citrix and co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, focused on building an IoT platform and company. He provided a behind-the-scenes look at Octoblu’s platform, business, and pivots along the way (including the Citrix acquisition of Octoblu).

The Internet of Everything is re-shaping technology trends–moving away from “request/response” architecture to an “always-on” Streaming Web where data is in constant motion and secure, reliable communication is an absolute necessity. As more and more THINGS go online, the challenges that developers will need to address will only increase exponentially. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Todd Greene, Founder & CEO of PubNub, exploreed the current state of IoT connectivity and review key trends and technology requirements that will drive the Internet of Things from hype to reality.
Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessions, I wanted to share some of my observations on emerging trends. As cyber security serves as a fou...
We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...
The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound effect on the world, and what should we expect to see over the next couple of years.
Container technology is shaping the future of DevOps and it’s also changing the way organizations think about application development.
