Metaswitch Networks announced an end to its patent litigation with Genband. The US District Court for the Eastern District of Texas denied Genband's request for a permanent injunction against Metaswitch products and confirmed that Genband is entitled to USD 8.8 million in damages from Metaswitch for patent infringement. The court also rejected Genband's claims that Metaswitch's redesigned products are still infringing its patents.
