Prysmian and Emtelle settle UK fibre patent dispute

Monday 31 May 2021 | 10:05 CET | News
Milan-listed cable maker Prysmian said it has reached a deal to settle proceedings for patent infringement in the UK High Court against Emtelle. The proceedings were brought last November after Prysmian claimed that Emtelle's FibreFlow Minicable products infringed two of its European patents (EP (UK) 1,420,279 B1 and EP (UK) 1,668,392 B1) for fibre-optic cables. Prysmian said Emtelle admitted that one or more of the patents in the action were infringed by certain FibreFlow Minicable products.
