With New Case Against HPE, the Number of Patents Asserted in Parity Networks Campaign Hits One Dozen

December 10, 2017

Parity Networks LLC has filed suit against HP Enterprise (HPE) (6:17-cv-00683), asserting three network traffic management patents already at issue against each previous defendant in the campaign—Ericsson, Huawei, Juniper Networks, and Nokia (Alcatel-Lucent)—while asserting three additional patents not involved in those earlier cases. With this new case, Parity has now brought 12 of the over five dozen, former Pluris patents received by September 2016 assignment into the campaign. The NPE’s infringement allegations target routine operations of certain HPE- or HP-branded switches and routers (e.g., performing Network Address Translation, filtering packets, multicasting, etc.)
