Mobile Communication Platform
Sisvel’s one-stop-shop for 3G and LTE
About the Mobile Communication Programme
Communication devices are everywhere and their ability to communicate with each other has become something we expect to happen seamlessly. While communication between devices is becoming simpler and more streamlined, as well as more powerful, the technological means to achieve this are growing in complexity.
Consumers and manufacturers alike expect an increasing level of sophistication from their devices. Satisfying this demand requires the implementation of groundbreaking inventions. Allowing efficient access to these technologies - and securing proper rewards for the their inventors - is also becoming more complex.
With the Mobile Communication Programme (MCP), Sisvel makes access to these enabling technologies easier.
Sisvel’s MCP offers a one-stop shop solution to license all standard essential patents (SEPs) for mobile communications held and/or managed under Sisvel’s various licence programmes, for their use in mobile communication products according to any of the mobile communication standards represented in the platform. We do this for the SEPs we own and control within the Sisvel group of companies, as well as the SEPS we administer for our partners.
As such, we offer a single solution to license SEPs for the field of use of 3G UMTS and 4G LTE.
The SEPs offered under licence are held by a variety of innovative companies, including:
3G Licensing SA
