IP Edge LTE Base Station Campaign Bursts Back to Life

December 21, 2018

Zavala Licensing LLC, an apparent affiliate of monetization firm IP Edge LLC, has revived its litigation campaign, which saw a short burst of initial activity in late 2017. The NPE has asserted the same patent, broadly pertaining to radio communications, against BaiCells Technologies (2:18-cv-00543), Ericsson (2:18-cv-00544), and Samsung (2:18-cv-00545) in the Eastern District of Texas, and ZTE (3:18-cv-03390) in the Northern District of that state. At issue are the defendants’ LTE base stations that allegedly comply with the LTE Release 8 standard. In October 2017, Zavala sued Airspan NetworksGeneral Dynamics Mission Systems (GDMS), NextivityThales, and Wilson Electronics (d/b/a Weboost), each of which cases was dismissed by mid-December 2017, all but the suit against GDMS without prejudice.
