New IPR and Patent Analysis on WiMAX/LTE 4G Indicates More Acquisitions for Larger Players, such as Intel, Qualcomm, Samsung and Motorola

Maravedis Releases the First WiMAX/LTE 4G Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Policy & Market Report

MONTREAL--()--Maravedis Inc. today strengthened its reputation as Telecoms most innovative market research and analyst firm launching the first and only available report on WiMAX/LTE 4G Intellectual Property Rights, an exhaustive analysis of real-world IPR and patent data complemented by a comprehensive worldwide patent database.

We cant underestimate the impact of IPR. By the end of the decade, we expect that almost $300 million will have been spent annually on IPR for WiMAX alone, said Robert Syputa, Senior Analyst and author of the report.

The WiMAX/LTE 4G IPR Policy & Market Report provides service providers with a powerful foresight on their upcoming IPR expenses, and helps manufacturer to position their IPR in the global patent scheme to lead their R&D strategy. Investors will have the right tools to gain insight on upcoming trends, identify investment and understand how IPR may pressure new IPOs.

3GPP and other emerging technologies had databases and analysis enabling to understand the potential of the technology, but nothing was available for WiMAX/4G, said Adlane Fellah, President of Maravedis.

The report provides factual and forward looking tools for all of the industrys stakeholders and covers policies, regulations, climate, forecasts, and trends, to name a few.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • IPR disputes and royalty rate for WiMAX/4G will be less onerous than experienced in cellular.
  • Consolidation among smaller players and entrance of incumbent suppliers indicates further acquisitions that will influence overall IPR costs.
  • Qualcomm's position in 802.16e is limited but presents a stronger position for technology advances that will impact 4G.
  • Wi-Lans WiMAX licensing agreements with Redline, Cisco and Nokia sets early precedent for IPR licensing rates.
