April 12, 2020

Arista Networks (6:20-cv-00281) and HP Enterprise (HPE) (Aruba Networks) (2:20-cv-00095) have become the latest defendants sued in the growing campaign of Proven Networks, LLC. The NPE asserts the same two networking patents, both originating with Nokia and received from Provenance Asset Group LLC, in each new complaint, with infringement allegations targeting certain operating systems and switches and/or other networking devices (e.g., controllers, access points, etc.) of Arista and HPE/Aruba. Since it began a month ago, this campaign has hit half a dozen companies, including Amazon, Cisco, Dell (EMC), and Extreme Networks.
