New NPE’s First Suit Focuses on Base Station Antennas
Cascade IP Consulting LLC, an NPE formed late in 2014, has filed its first patent infringement suit. The complaint filed against Kathrein asserts a patent related to an antenna system with a choke reflector for minimizing sideward radiation (5,710,569). A series of Kathrein base station antennas are the accused products. This appears to be the first time the ‘569 patent has been asserted in litigation.
