CHICAGO, Sept. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ICAP Patent Brokerage, a division of ICAP plc and the world's largest intellectual property and patent auction firm, today announced that it will offer a Covenant Not to Sue (CNS) from Patentportfolio 2 S.a.r.l. at its upcoming CNS Auction September 27th in Los Angeles. The CNS covers Patentportfolio 2 S.a.r.l.'s patent portfolio over 80 patents.
The patents covered by this CNS disclose technologies related to:
- Fundamental Access Networking Patents: The patents in this group cover critical aspects of how signal transmissions are synchronized, formatted and processed in access networks that connect subscribers to their service providers.
- Passive Optical Network (PON) Patents: Patents that are relevant to currently deployed PON standards and technologies
- Optical Transport Patents: The patents in this group cover novel inventions that address significant demands on the transport, routing and switching of optical signals, including unique wavelength drop and insert multiplexing techniques, optical cross-connect switching, optical signal regeneration, optical signal amplification and all optical packet processing.
- Optical Components Patents: A diverse collection of patents on various optical components, including splitters, couplers, optical filters, amplifiers and splice trays -all critical for constructing optical access and transport networks
A CNS is an agreement that prevents assertion of a party's right to litigation. A company entering into a CNS with respect to the Patentportfolio 2 S.a.r.l.'s patents would gain the freedom to operate under them, and would avoid the uncertainty inherent in patent infringement litigation.
Starting today, ICAP Patent Brokerage will accept anonymous bids on the Patentportfolio 2 S.a.r.l. CNS. To learn more about the assets available or to place a bid, contact Kevin Fiur at Kevin.Fiur@us.icap.com.
