Nitetek Licensing LLC, a plaintiff associated with monetization firm IP Edge LLC, has sued Juniper Networks (1:21-cv-01225) and Senao Networks (EnGenius Technologies) (1:21-cv-01223) over devices that support 3G Universal Mobile Telecommunications Systems (UMTS) cellular networking, identifying in its complaints the CBA850 3G/4G/LTE Wireless WAN Bridge and EPG600 IoT Gateway, respectively. Asserted is the wireless networking patent at issue throughout this campaign, a single former Panasonic patent generally related to selecting a spreading code for asymmetric communications.
In December, IP Edge LLC plaintiff Nitetek Licensing LLC expanded its sole litigation campaign with a suit against Beijer Electronics (Westermo Data Communications) (1:20-cv-07629) in the Northern District of Illinois, followed by separate District of Delaware cases against Samsara Networks (1:20-cv-01750) and TVU Networks (1:20-cv-01751). The asserted patent, originating with Panasonic, generally relates to selecting a spreading code for asymmetric communications. The defendants are accused of infringement through the provision of devices (i.e., gateways and routers) that support 3G Universal Mobile Telecommunications Systems (UMTS) networking capabilities.
