Both US and worldwide patents are evaluated by company with a focus on fundamental network architecture, enabling software, and RF chipsets. Detail is extensive and the 1,340 page report is both comprehensive and accessible, organized with an easy-to-use interface; patents to claims are hyperlinked within the document.
This new Report analyzes 628 WiMAX patents and demonstrates strong growth and expansion. Intel and Samsung dominance in patent activity continues.
The substantial increase in patent activity in the last two years is a key to understanding the potent growth possibilities in WiMAX success. Intel and Samsung continue their predominance in WiMAX patent filings.
“I was surprised by the level of activity in the WiMAX IP and patent sphere in the last year,” says Dr Kirsten West, Principal Analyst of WTRS. “IP filings are moving to application-based patents, indicating a maturing of the WiMAX market.”
The WiMAX IP & Patent Report findings include:
1. Patent growth accelerating in WiMAX area to 628 patents, 24% increase over 2007 research.
2. New research focuses on interaction and handoff between WiMAX and WiFi networks.
3. Dominance of Samsung and Intel in new patent filings continues.
4. Strong growth in IEEE 802.16e -related IP development.
5. Evolution of WiBRO patent filings to application, and end-product related work.
Using only publicly available information, meticulously gathered from public patent sources, company information, and other research this report is truly an invaluable resource for any company participating in the WiMAX sector, or planning a potential entry into this market.
