Wireless & Telecom
Digital communication is pervasive in modern society, and we help some of the largest companies in the world develop and grow their strong patent portfolios in all aspects of communications technology. Our patent professionals have academic, industry, legal and practical experience in a wide range of communications-related technologies such as cellular communications, optical communications, satellite communications, terrestrial and space-based radio communications, analog and digital television, mesh networks, low-power networks, Internet protocols, video and audio coding, local area networks (LANs) and video conferencing.
From the chip level to the system level, we have a working knowledge of all major communications standards, including NFC, Bluetooth, WiFi, 3G, 4G, LTE and LTE-A, and of emerging 5G devices and networks. In addition, we have experience in the protection of software and communication protocols across terrestrial and space-based networks, wide area network (WAN)/LAN networks, and optical communications, to name a few. We have extensive knowledge in preparing patent applications and claims that read on industry standards, as well as representing our clients before patent pool administrators. We also prepare and prosecute communications-related patent applications with claims that avoid indirect infringement issues, extraterritorial issues, and being incorrectly construed as abstract ideas.
Furthermore, we recognize the importance of advancements in communication technology as it relates to other emerging technologies, such as Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Blockchain. We approach the preparation, prosecution, and enforcement of communication patents with client’s direct needs in mind while also taking into account the big picture of a fluid technological landscape.
