Stays Lifted, Wireless Networking Campaign Roars to Life Against Both Existing and New Defendants

June 19, 2021

XR Communications, LLC (d/b/a Vivato Technologies) has filed more than a dozen new cases, one each against Alphabet (Google), Amazon (eero), Apple, ASUSTek, Cisco, Comcast, CommScope (ARRIS Solutions), and Samsung in the Western District of Texas; against D-Link, Hon Hai Precision Industry (Belkin), HP Enterprise (HPE) (Aruba Networks), NETGEAR, and Ubiquiti Networks in the Central District of California; and against CommScope (Ruckus Wireless) in the Northern District of California. XR Communications targets various wireless networking capabilities of certain defendant devices—including access points, controllers, routers, and streaming devices—with overlapping subsets of four patents. The new wave arrives as the prior, 2017 wave of litigation from the same plaintiff comes back to life at the conclusion of a set of inter partes reviews (IPRs) of three patents asserted previously.
