Friday 15 February 2013 | 19:08 CET | News
Network-1 Security Solutions has announced it has agreed to settle patent litigation against NEC and NEC Corporation of America pending in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Tyler Division, for infringement of Network-1's Remote Power Patent (US Patent No. 6,218,930). NEC was one of sixteen defendants named in the litigation. As part of the settlement, NEC entered into a settlement agreement and non-exclusive license agreement for the Remote Power Patent. Under the terms of the license, NEC will license the Remote Power Patent for its full term which expires in March 2020, and pay a license fee and quarterly royalties based on its sales of Power over Ethernet (PoE) products, including those PoE products which comply with the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) 802.3af and 802.3at Standards. In September 2011, Network-1 initiated patent litigation against sixteen data networking equipment manufacturers in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Tyler Division, for infringement of its Remote Power Patent. The Remote Power Patent relates to, among other things, delivering power over Ethernet cables to remotely power network connected devices including, among others, wireless switches, wireless access points, RFID card readers, VoIP telephones and network cameras.
