Sisvel an increasingly important patent owner in the field of telecommunications

Luxembourg, 15 May 2019

Leveraging on years of investments in R&D activities, carried out in Sisvel Technology, so as to develop new technologies and corresponding IP positions as well as working with third parties wishing to divest valuable patent portfolios, Sisvel Group is today the owner of more than 320 patent families, most of which in the field of consumer electronics and telecommunications.

Sisvel is becoming an increasingly relevant patent owner, with more than 1,100 patents worldwide in the mobile communication field alone. This creates synergies with Sisvel’s activities as licensing administrator in the same field, where Sisvel currently manages its multi-generational licensing program for 3G and 4G standard essential patents – the Mobile Communication Program – to which all its relevant assets are contributed.

After having completed the acquisition of new portfolios in the beginning of Q2 2019, Sisvel currently disposes on more than 70 patent families essential to 3G and/or LTE. These families include, among others, patents originally filed by Blackberry and LG Electronics, with about 200 patents.

“We look with renewed confidence to our licensing activities in Mobile Communications: with a portfolio of assets built after careful selection and with hundreds of patents with a residual life spanning into the 2030s, we are convinced that the market will continue recognizing the value of our joint licensing programs and of the assets we own” Mattia Fogliacco, CEO of the Sisvel Group, said. “Our investments help in consolidating various portfolios into a streamlined offering, available through our programs”.

Continued investments further expanding the footprint of our collaborative activities, with a renewed focus on collaborations with R&D centres, will ensure the further growth of Sisvel’s portfolios and programs.

For this reason, Sisvel is today one of the most relevant players in the field of licensing mobile communications assets.
