Avanci enters patent licence agreement with BMW

Tuesday 5 December 2017 | 17:21 CET | News
As part of Avanci's mission to streamline patent licensing for the Internet of Things, it provides licence rights to 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE essential patents at a fair, flat rate that is the same for all vehicles regardless of the price and the number of telematics units installed. This rate will not increase over the term of the licence, no matter how many additional patent owners join the platform in the future beyond the 11 companies that joined the platform to date.
