CommScope Files Patent Infringement Suit Against Comlab AG
CommScope, a global leader in infrastructure solutions for
communications networks, has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against
Comlab, AG, a provider of radio frequency equipment based in Switzerland.
The complaint asserts infringement of two patents related to CommScope
innovations for in-train communications systems. CommScope had
previously filed for an inspection order in Germany which was served on
Comlab. In that proceeding, the independent expert appointed by German
courts found in favor of CommScope.
"CommScope invests heavily in distributed coverage and capacity
solutions that address pressing issues in providing seamless public
safety and cellular communications to support today's connected
lifestyle," said Matt Melester, senior vice president, Distributed
Coverage and Capacity Solutions. "As such, we vigorously protect these
valuable assets. This action against Comlab is a necessary step to
prevent unauthorized infringement."
In 2016, CommScope also filed suit against Dali Wireless for patent
infringement related to CommScope's digital RF transport intellectual
property. CommScope also recently signed an agreement with Kathrein, AG
to license CommScope's complete distributed antenna system patent
