Far North Revives One of Its Litigation Campaigns over Former IV Patents

September 10, 2021

Texas-based NPE Far North Patents, LLC has revived its first litigation campaign, begun in December 2019, with a suit against Avaya (1:21-cv-00688) in the Middle District of North Carolina. The NPE asserts five patents—each received from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV)—broadly directed to various aspects of Internet-based telecommunications. Avaya is targeted over “advanced quality monitoring capabilities” in its Avaya Diagnostic Server with SLA Monitor and “advanced presence information capabilities” in its Avaya One-X Communicator and Avaya Aura Presence Services platforms. The case against the most recent defendant, NXP, which saw five different patents asserted, ended in a November 2020 dismissal with prejudice (in light of settlement).
