CommScope claims that its unique base station antenna innovations have been unlawfully reproduced by Rosenberger Site Solutions LLC and two of its Chinese affiliates. The base station antenna units in question are protected by patents, and CommScope has filed an infringement lawsuit in the state of Delaware, reports Yahoo Finance.
“CommScope innovates, designs, manufactures, and sells best-in-class products and solutions around the world,” said Senior VP and segment leader of Outdoor Wireless Networks for CommScope, Farid Firouzbakht. “CommScope has taken this action to protect the company’s significant investments in developing innovative products that help our customers unlock the potential of their network infrastructure.”
This is the second related lawsuit filed against Rosenberger by CommScope. The earlier suit, filed in New Jersey in 2019, alleges that former employees of CommScope gave trade secrets relating to proprietary software programs and base station antenna hardware to Rosenberger. The case is currently pending.
The new lawsuit contends that seven patents relating to the design of a range of base station antennas have been compromised. The patents involve crucial building blocks and new ways to utilize frequency bands ranging from 600 MHz to over 2000 MHz. The buildout of high performance multi-band cellular networks is enabled by this technology, which CommScope asserts is a unique technology. The patents in question are U.S. Patent Nos. 7,358,922; 7,535,430; 9,698,486; 9,831,548; 10,439,285; 10,498,035; and 10,547,110.
