Alexandria, VA (USA), March 3, 2011

Sisvel US, a subsidiary of the Sisvel Group, has been accepted as a member of the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), a leading standard setting organization and trade association representing the information and communications technology industry.

Sisvel US believes that broad access and promotion of intellectual property rights has been, and will continue to be, a key factor in the success and wide deployment of standardized technologies. In this competitive environment, Sisvel supports and fosters the growth of the technology industry by operating as a bridge between manufacturers that require access to key technology and patent owners that wish to license their portfolios to finance further research. Among its activities, Sisvel facilitates manufacturers’ access to patented technologies, help companies promote and license their inventions, and simplifies access to intellectual property relating to international standards.

“Joining TIA is a unique opportunity for Sisvel US – said Gen. Richard Neal, President of Sisvel US - in line with our company’s strong commitment to the worldwide standardization process of telecommunication technologies, and provides an important contribution to the promotion of IPR and FRAND licensing opportunities. Sisvel US will participate on different committees and working groups in several areas and will work in close contact with TIA Members to develop a more predictable and sustainable IP licensing environment. ”
