LTE & Other Standards-Essential Patents
Tynax provides clients with unique services proven to build portfolios of standards-essential patents in the areas of LTE, LTE-Advanced, Wi-Fi and other areas.
A standard-essential patent is a patent that claims an invention that must be used to comply with a technical standard. Use of the invention is essential if a product, like a smartphone, is going to conform with the standard.
Standards are set by organizations such as ETSI and IEEE that often require members disclose and grant licenses to their patents and pending patent applications that cover a standard that the organization is developing.
