Verizon Sued for Alleged Infringement of Former Nortel Patents

  • June 17, 2014

Spherix continues to assert former Nortel patents, this time in a suit against Verizon. The four patents-in-suit, which have not previously been asserted by Spherix, relate to processing and prioritizing call requests, switching optical signals, translating messages between different types of devices, and providing communication across firewalls (6,507,648, 6,882,800, 6,980,564, 8,166,533). Spherix’s complaint alleges that Verizon’s software, switches, routers, and services infringe the asserted patents. The patents are part of the Nortel portfolio that was acquired by Rockstar Bidco in July 2011 and then transferred to Rockstar Consortium. Rockstar assigned the four patents to Spherix in February 2014. 6/11, Virginia Eastern District Court, 1:14cv00721
