I opened The United States International Trade Commission (ITC) is investigating after it alleges a company Erickson that a company Samsung violated some of its patents in the fourth generation and its fifth generation wireless cellular infrastructure systems.
The United States International Trade Commission is an independent and quasi-judicial federal agency of the United States that provides trade expertise to both the legislative and executive branches.
Ericsson said: Samsung’s patent infringing products are on the side of the cellular communications tower, including antennas, radios, base stations and core network products that communicate wirelessly with cell phones and other cellular equipment.
The investigation began after Ericsson filed a complaint with the United States’ International Trade Commission on January 15, alleging that Samsung had unlawfully used its wireless communications patents for its mobile phones, tablets, and smart TVs.
Last month, Ericsson filed a lawsuit against Samsung in the US District Court in Texas, alleging patent infringement.
“If the challenge is successful, there will be no disruption to existing cellular networks,” said Ericsson in the presentation to the United States International Trade Commission.
Ericsson’s domestic and foreign production, along with products from other suppliers, will be able to meet the demand of the domestic market.
Samsung explained to the United States’ International Trade Commission that Ericsson did not provide realistic support for this argument.
In the lawsuit, Samsung said: Over the past two years its US company has provided thousands of 5G base stations to US carriers, including Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T Inc.
The committee said: It has not yet taken any decision on the merits of the case, and is assigning the case to an administrative law judge who sets a hearing on evidence and makes a preliminary decision on whether there is a violation.
The last patent ownership dispute between the two companies was in 2012 when Ericsson took legal action against Samsung alleging patent infringement.
It took two years to solve the problem, with the South Korean company paying the Swedish company $ 650 million plus years of fees to end the battle.
