Avanci launched its 5G automotive licensing programme, part of its new 5G IoT platform. The programme will enable patent owners and IoT and automotive companies to share 5G standard essential wireless patents in a single licence. The 5G platform builds on the Avanci marketplace, which transformed the licensing landscape by licensing the vast majority of the 2G, 3G, and 4G mobile essential patents in a single agreement at fixed, fair and transparent rates.
The 5G automotive programme was reviewed by the US Department of Justice (DoJ) Antitrust Division.
Avanci will now begin discussions with IoT device manufacturers, the auto industry and patent owners about streamlining the patent licensing process for 5G connected devices, as it has done for the previous technologies. Interested companies can contact Avanci via www.avanci.com.
