Adaptix Inc. is suing Nokia Networks and T-Mobile US Inc. in the same East Texas court where it's targeting LightSquared and NSN with a similar patent complaint.

Patent hoarder Adaptix filed suit Friday (May 11) against T-Mobile and its vendor in Tyler, Texas.

Adaptix holds 4G-related wireless patents related to Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) and multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) radio technology. It alleges that NSN's SingleRAN Flexi Multiradio base station, which it claims T-Mobile uses, infringes on five of its patents and is seeking damages. The latest suit cites the same patents tied to Adaptix's complaint against LightSquared and NSN.

These patents relate to:

  • Multi-carrier communications with adaptive cluster configuration and switching (the '172 patent)
  • Channel allocation in broadband orthogonal frequency-division multiple access/space division multiple-access networks (the '808 patent)
  • Method and system for switching antenna and channel assignments in broadband wireless networks (the '851 patent)
  • Multi-carrier communications with group-based subcarrier allocation (the '283 patent)
  • Medium access control for orthogonal frequency-division multiple-access (OFDMA) cellular networks (the '315 patent)


Why this matters
Adaptix has been going after 4G-related patents hard this year. The firm has also separately filed suit against Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) and AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) in recent months.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
