Proven Networks Follows First Suit, Against Cisco in East Texas, with a Case Against Dell in West Texas

March 21, 2020

Earlier this month, Proven Networks, LLC filed its first lawsuit in the Eastern District of Texas, accusing Cisco of infringing four former Nokia patents received from Provenance Asset Group LLC. The plaintiff has since amended its Cisco complaint to reduce to two the asserted patents there and has filed its second case, hitting Dell (EMC) (6:20-cv-00202) in a Western District of Texas complaint with the two patents still live against Cisco, as well as with a couple of others, all broadly directed to “data networking technology”. Proven accuses Dell of infringement through the provision of various networking devices and systems, including the Dell Networking Operating Software, certain infrastructure appliances, and devices that incorporate them.
