IP Edge LLC has launched a fourth litigation campaign based on one or more of the 30 plus former Panasonic patents that the Texas monetization firm acquired from Allied Security Trust (AST) in January 2017. Mentone Solutions LLC, formed in mid-September, has filed suit against Acer (2:18-cv-00443), Inseego (1:18-cv-02767), MVG (1:18-cv-01713), NETGEAR (1:18-cv-01714), TCL (2:18-cv-00444), and T-Mobile (2:18-cv-00445) over a patent generally related to packet transmission in TDMA (time division multiple access) wireless networks. Targeted are devices with Dual-Carrier HSPA+ capability, the complaints calling out Acer’s Swift 7 laptop, Inseego’s SA2100 modem, MVG’s NeptuLink, NETGEAR’s LTE modems (e.g., LB2120), TCL’s LINKZONE hotspot, and T-Mobile’s Rocket 3.0 4G modem.
Zavala Licensing LLC has begun a litigation campaign, filing complaints that assert a single patent against Airspan Networks (1:17-cv-01436), General Dynamics Mission Systems (GDMS) (1:17-cv-01437), Nextivity (1:17-cv-01438), Thales (1:17-cv-01439), and Weboost Electronics (1:17-cv-01440). The patent generally relates to devices and methods for radio communication. The NPE, an apparent affiliate of monetization firm IP Edge LLC, has accused the defendants of infringement through the provision of LTE base stations, naming Airspan’s Air4G Macro MAXe, GDMS’s Cell on Wheels LTE Deployable Solution, Nextivity’s Cel-Fi QUATRA, the NEXIUM Wireless LTE network solution, and the Weboost Connect 4GX system, respectively.
