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.
This session will explore Ericsson’s experiences and ideas regarding IPRs in collaborations and Open Innovation and how to succeed with this.
