LUXEMBOURG–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sisvel International SA (“Sisvel”) today announced the launch of its 5G Multimode (5G MM) licensing program.
The 5G MM program provides a single solution for licensing Standard Essential Patents (SEPs) for the use of cellular standards up to and including 5G. The license offering is focused on consumer electronics products and includes the 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G SEPs owned by 14 founding companies: Alfred Consulting LLC, Intellectual Discovery Co., Ltd., JVCKENWOOD Corporation, KDDI Corporation, Koninklijke KPN NV , Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Siemens Aktiengesellschaft, SK Telecom Co., Ltd., Technology in Ariscale, LLC, Telefónica SA, TIM SpA, Wilus Inc., Wireless Innovations, LLC and Sisvel. Sisvel is also continuing discussions with various other companies that may be interested in joining the pool.
“Sisvel’s 5G MM program will be the only cellular patent pool targeted at the wireless consumer electronics market, with Via Licensing announcing its exit from the space. A single patent pool will help eliminate confusion in the marketplace and increase the efficiency of wireless licensing for implementers and licensors alike,” commented Donald Chan, Program Manager, Sisvel 5G MM Licensing Program.
“Sisvel’s 5G MM program represents an efficient and competitive licensing offering for the consumer electronics market. It will grant operational freedom to implementers and, in turn, generate royalties for the group of innovators who have helped pave the way for the connected world that we enjoy and which we improve every day. At the heart of Sisvel is ensuring these innovators are rewarded for their hard work and risk-taking, which is inevitable when you invest in research and development so they can continue to invent products that will improve our lives,” says Mattia Fogliacco. President of the Sisvel Group.
With the 5G MM program, Sisvel offers an efficient and transparent way for implementers to access the relevant SEPs of the participating patent holders on fair and reasonable terms. Sisvel has the right to grant non-exclusive licenses under all essential wireless standard patents, including 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G, owned and/or controlled by the participating patent holders.
The 5G MM program is open to additional patent holders with relevant patents. Sisvel invites all parties who own patents that they believe are essential to wireless standards to join the patent pool and contact Sisvel to submit those patents for evaluation by the program’s designated independent reviewers.
