Conference Day 1
Monday, April 4th, 2022
In today’s interconnected ecosystems, products made by different companies must be able to work together.
Technology standards – particularly, those that underlie connectivity, enabling multiple devices to interoperate
and communicate with each other – have never been more important. The success of the Internet of
Things hinges on licensing of connectivity standard-essential patents (SEPs). Disruptive technologies such
as autonomous driving, industrial automation, smart energy systems, virtual and augmented reality and
many others depend on non-discriminatory access to SEP licenses and reasonable royalty rates. This panel
discussion will explore the importance of SEP license availability to all parties at fair rates.
