Glocom, Inc. subsidiary SIPCO LLC has filed suit in the Eastern District of Texas against CommScope (Arris, Ruckus Wireless) (5:20-cv-00168) over the provision of Internet of Things (IoT) access points and gateways that use the ZigBee mesh networking standard as well as wireless access points that can send emergency notifications over cellular networks. The plaintiff asserts five patents in the complaint, managing to add two new ones to the group of now 30-plus patents-in-suit, in one of the longest-running campaigns, alive since 2005, one of those new patents recently sourced from Pantech.
SIPCO LLC has added an April case against HP Enterprise (Aruba Networks) (1:20-cv-00537) to the two suits that it filed in March 2020, one against each of D-Link (8:20-cv-00595) and TP-Link (8:20-cv-00543). Aruba Networks is accused of infringing multiple patents through the provision of various networking products (e.g., access points,gateways, and mesh networking solutions) that use the Bluetooth 5 or Zigbee standards; D-Link and TP-Link, of infringing overlapping sets of patents through the provision of smart home routers, controllers, and sensors that use the Z-Wave or ZigBee mesh networking standards. This campaign has been running continuously since 2005, albeit with a change of ownership in the beginning of 2018.
