Nokia asks Texas court to stop Qualcomm’s unauthorized use of Nokia’s MediaFLO and BREW patents

 

Espoo, Finland - Nokia today announced it has filed patent counter assertions against Qualcomm in the Eastern District of Texas Court. The filing relates to Qualcomm’s unauthorized use of 6 Nokia implementation patents in its MediaFLO and BREW businesses. Qualcomm has in previous litigation sought injunctions against Nokia and therefore in this case Nokia is seeking both damages and injunctive relief.

 

“Nokia has a strong history of innovation in IP broadcast television and mobile download environments predating Qualcomm’s activities,” said Tero Ojanperä, chief technology officer, Nokia. “This is another example where Qualcomm has effectively copied Nokia’s innovations. We believe that, for MediaFLO to evolve and for BREW to remain viable, Qualcomm needs access to these and many other patented Nokia inventions.”

 

Nokia patents are at the core of MediaFLO and BREW technologies, for example in ensuring the broadcast quality of service within MediaFLO and in enabling the download of applications with BREW. Nokia has also recently declared another set of patents to the Telecommunication Industry Association (TIA) as essential for the FLO air interface used in MediaFLO.

 

Nokia has built one of the strongest and broadest IPR portfolios in the wireless industry over the last 15 years through extensive investments in research and development. Nokia will continue to vigorously defend itself against the infringement and unauthorized use of its intellectual property.

 

Nokia’s patent counter assertions are part of its response to the Qualcomm lawsuit filed in the Eastern District of Texas, on 2 April, 2007. In that lawsuit Qualcomm’s three patents-in-suit allegedly involve certain types of mobile software download and execution environments. Nokia is confident that the Qualcomm patents are invalid, for example, based on the alleged inventions having been patented or published by other companies, including Nokia, before Qualcomm. In addition, Nokia believes its products do not infringe any of the patents.

 

Nokia is the world leader in mobility, driving the transformation and growth of the converging Internet and communications industries. Nokia makes a wide range of mobile devices and provides people with experiences in music, navigation, video, television, imaging, games and business mobility through these devices. Nokia also provides equipment, solutions and services for communications networks.

Wibree forum merges with Bluetooth SIG

Bluetooth technology expands for ultra low power PAN applications with Nokia’s Wibree

 

Bellevue, WA, USA and Espoo, Finland – The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG),  the more than 8,000-company strong trade association responsible for advancing Bluetooth wireless technology, joined Nokia today in announcing that the Wibree forum, the group specifying the Nokia developed ultra low power wireless technology, will be merged with the Bluetooth SIG.

 

With this announcement, the Wibree specification will become part of the Bluetooth specification as an ultra low power Bluetooth technology. Because Wibree addresses devices with very low battery capacity and can be easily integrated with Bluetooth technology, it will round out Bluetooth technology’s wireless Personal Area Networking (PAN) offering and strengthen the technology’s ability to provide wireless connectivity for smaller devices.

 

“By including or referencing other wireless technologies like ultra wideband for high speed applications, near field communication (NFC) for association and now Wibree for ultra low power applications under the well-established Bluetooth profiles, we are opening up a host of new applications and functionality while keeping the user experience consistent,” said Michael Foley, Ph. D. executive director, Bluetooth SIG. “Our members have been asking for an ultra low power Bluetooth solution. With Nokia’s innovative development and contribution to the Bluetooth specification with Wibree, we will be able to deliver this in approximately one year.”

 

Wibree’s development started at the Nokia Research Center in 2001. Wibree was announced to a broader audience in October of 2006 and Nokia stated its intention to incorporate the technology and its current forum into an open, preferably existing industry forum to ensure Wibree’s wide adoption.

 

“The development work for Wibree began when we discovered a series of interesting new use scenarios that no current local connectivity solution was addressing. Now we are happy to see Wibree become part of the open Bluetooth standard, opening new market opportunities and space to innovate for the industry,” said Jarkko Sairanen, Vice President of Corporate Strategy for Nokia. “Including Wibree within an existing forum will ensure interoperability and its wide and fast adoption. The Bluetooth SIG is the optimal new home for Wibree.”

 

To this day Broadcom, Casio, CSR, Epson, ItoM, Logitech, Nordic Semiconductor, ST Microelectronics, Suunto, Taiyo Yuden Co., Ltd. and Texas Instruments have contributed to the interoperability specification, profiles and use case definition of Wibree in their respective areas of expertise and will continue this work in the Bluetooth SIG working groups. Several new companies, including device, watch and access systems manufacturers will join the finalization of the specification. Once the specification is finalized, the technology will be made broadly available to the industry via the Bluetooth SIG.

 

“Nokia’s contribution of its Wibree technology into the Bluetooth SIG as the basis for ultra low power Bluetooth specifications will continue to enhance the consumer experience of connecting to anything and anyone from anywhere with Bluetooth wireless  technology,” said John R. Barr, Ph.D., chairman of the Bluetooth SIG board of directors. “This new technology, as the basis of a wide range of ultra low power devices, is a commendable advancement in Bluetooth technology.”

 

From the start, Wibree was designed to work with two implementation options – as an easily implemented extension to a classic Bluetooth radio, and as a stand-alone implementation

 

The Bluetooth SIG recognized the potential of Wibree to enhance current Bluetooth use cases around the mobile phone and PC by bringing very low power, sensor type devices into the fold. The ultra low power extension will allow watches and toys, as well as sports & wellness, healthcare and entertainment devices to be easily added to one’s personal area network. This opens a new range of mobile possibilities for end users.

 

By leveraging Bluetooth technology’s high consumer awareness (86 percent globally), the Bluetooth SIG’s large membership and proven development and qualification programs, the ultra low power solution will be integrated faster and at a lower cost to the industry and consumers. Thanks to its innovative design, Wibree consumes only a fraction of the power of classic Bluetooth radios. In many cases it makes it possible to operate these devices for more than a year without recharging.

 

As stated in his March 2007 ABI Research Short Range Wireless Service, research Director Stuart Carlaw predicted a $432 milllion, 809 million device industry for Wibree by 2012. Carlaw said, “We believe [Wibree] is a unique technology that can leverage the very positive market position of Bluetooth technology in segments such as medical, sports equipment and well-being, where the total available market is extremely large and still relatively untouched.”

 

The work of integrating the low power technology within the existing Bluetooth specification has begun and the first version of the specification is anticipated during first half of 2008.

 

Live audiocast

Bluetooth SIG and Nokia are hosting a live audiocast for media at 16:00 CET today, accessible at: http://www.nokia.com/press

Nokia organizes for the converging marketplace

 

Espoo, Finland – Nokia today announced that it will introduce a new company structure from January 1, 2008. The move, driven by Nokia’s strategy, is aimed at creating an organization aligned with the opportunities Nokia sees for future growth, and to increase efficient ways of working across the company.

 

“The convergence of the mobile communications and internet industries is opening up new growth opportunities for us, both in the devices business as well as in consumer internet services and enterprise solutions. Growing consumer demand for rich, mobile experiences creates an opportunity for change. Nokia will bring these capabilities to the broadest range of devices and price points. This unleashes the power of Nokia’s device volumes, now coupled with new services and business solutions. This distinctive approach sets Nokia apart from point solutions vendors,” said Nokia CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo. “We believe this new organization can capitalize on these opportunities while allowing us to increase the effectiveness of our investments and the efficiency of our operations.”

 

Under the new organization, Nokia’s current business group and horizontal group structure in the device business will be replaced by three main units: Devices, responsible for creating the best device portfolio for the marketplace; Services & Software, reflecting Nokia’s strategic emphasis on growing its offering of consumer internet services and enterprise solutions and software; and Markets, responsible for management of Nokia’s supply chains, sales channels and marketing activities. In addition, Nokia will establish a Chief Development Office to optimize Nokia’s strategic capabilities and growth potential and also provide operational support for integration across all these units in conjunction with the CEO.

 

From January 1, 2008 onwards, under the new structure, Nokia will have two reportable segments: Devices & Services, and Nokia Siemens Networks. Nokia will report on these two segments in its quarterly and annual results announcements.

 

The Devices unit will be headed by Kai Öistämö, currently heading the Mobile Phones Business Group; the Services & Software unit will be headed by Niklas Savander, currently heading Technology Platforms: the Markets unit will be headed by Anssi Vanjoki, currently heading the Multimedia Business Group. Mary McDowell, currently heading the Enterprise Solutions Business Group will hold the position of Chief Development Officer.

 

Robert Andersson, currently heading Customer and Market Operations, will be responsible for finance and strategy in Devices and Nokia-wide strategic sourcing. Tero Ojanperä, currently Nokia’s Chief Technology Officer, will have business responsibility for entertainment and communities services in Services & Software. Timo Ihamuotila, currently in charge of Mobile Phones’ Sales and Portfolio Management, will be responsible for Nokia’s global sales within the Markets unit.

 

Other Group Executive Board members, Simon Beresford-Wylie, Hallstein Moerk, Rick Simonson and Veli Sundbäck will continue in their current positions.

 

Nokia expects that the new organization will allow it to manage its device portfolio with greater effectiveness, speed up time to market for new products, and increase the efficiency of its marketing and productization efforts. In addition, Nokia expects that having a new unit dedicated to consumer internet services and enterprise solutions will build on the foundations established in the existing organization to best position the company to offer its customers complete solutions.

Tele 2 partners with Nokia Siemens Networks to enhance its European fiber optic backbone

 

Nokia Siemens Networks and will work with Swedish Tele2 to build a new pan-European Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) network that can support 40 Gigabits per second and wavelength on every link. The new network will bolster Tele2’s fast-growing IP backbone network, and link major European telecommunications nodes. The new core transport network will enable Tele2 to cost-efficiently offer its customers new IP services and enhance its transmission capacity.

 

The Tele2 project relies on the SURPASS hiT 7300, an optical platform that allows the realization of metropolitan to ultra-long haul transport applications on a flexible DWDM network architecture. The main advantages of this new technology for Tele2 are increased service quality and flexibility, as well as reduced costs. The unique automation features of the platform enable hands-off provisioning of new services, resulting in Tele2 being able to effortlessly adjust its bandwidth as needed. The SURPASS hiT 7300 platform integrates technology from Stratalight Communications into its platform technology to support the 40Gbit/s transmission rates per wavelength.

 

Tele2’s new optical backbone will cover Central Europe. The deployment started in the second quarter of 2007.

 

Uwe Fischer, head of the DWDM business line at Nokia Siemens Networks, said: “The demanding transmission requirements of Tele2 make this project quite unique. It will show that SURPASS hiT 7300 is a powerful and flexible platform that can easily handle huge traffic flows.”

 

Background information

The SURPASS hiT 7300 is a flexible and cost-efficient 40-channel DWDM transport platform optimized for high-capacity transport, and ranges from 200 to 2,000 km links. It is designed and optimized for bit rates of 2.5, 10, and 40 Gigabits per second per wavelength. The comprehensive automation and customization of network configurations minimize system complexity, simplify network operation, administration and maintenance, and eliminate procedural errors, all contributing to lower CAPEX and OPEX.

 

About Tele 2

Tele2 is Europe’s leading alternative telecom operator. Tele2’s mission is to provide cheap and simple telecoms for everyone in Europe. Tele2 always strives to offer the market’s best prices. We have 29 million customers in 22 countries. Tele2 offers fixed and mobile telephony, broadband, data network services, cable TV and content services. Ever since Jan Stenbeck founded the company in 1993, it has been a tough challenger to the former government monopolies and other established providers. Tele2 has been listed on Stockholmsbörsen since 1996. In 2006 we had operating revenue of SEK 50.3 billion and we reported an operating profit (EBITDA) of SEK 5.7 billion.

NXTcomm 2007, Chicago: New Carrier Ethernet technology from Nokia Siemens Networks

 

At NXTcomm 2007 in Chicago, Nokia Siemens Networks will be presenting network solutions and switches for Carrier Ethernet technology that support Provider Backbone Bridging Traffic Engineering (PBB-TE). The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is currently ratifying this standard.

 

Provider Backbone Bridging Traffic Engineering (PBB-TE) is the new connection-oriented technology for Carrier Ethernet networks. As carriers increasingly look to offer end-to-end Ethernet services, PBB-TE offers a new way for them to optimize their packet transport, meaning they can use their networks more efficiently and cost effectively. PBB-TE lets service providers reap the full benefits of Carrier Ethernet — carrier-grade reliability, manageability, security and scalability — in their large telecommunications networks.

 

“Cutting costs is right at the top of our customers’ to-do lists. Thanks to our Ethernet products with PBB-TE, we will be able to offer a low-cost alternative that is fully carrier-grade,” said Bernd Schumacher, head of IP/Transport, Nokia Siemens Networks.

 

Nokia Siemens Networks has cooperated with British Telecom to develop and deploy PBB-TE products for the carrier’s new 21st Century Network.

 

The solution will be given its public premiere June 19-21 at NXTcomm 2007 in Chicago at McCormick Place, Booth #2860.
