Sisvel Launches Its Cellular IoT Patent Pool

Sisvel | November 11, 2022

Sisvel International S.A. (Sisvel) announced today the launch of its Cellular IoT (C-IoT) Patent Pool consisting of 20 patent owners. The C-IoT patent pool offers a single solution to license standard essential patents (SEPs) that are essential for the use of the cellular LPWAN standards LTE-M and Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT). Sisvel is joined in the pool by ASUSTek, Datang, Ericsson, ETRI, Innovative Sonic, JVCKENWOOD, KDDI, MediaTek, Mitsubishi Electric, NTT DOCOMO, Optis Cellular, Optis Wireless, Orange, Pantech, Shanghai Langbo, Sony Group Corporation, Telefónica, Unwired Planet and one additional company to be announced soon. The pool remains open for new participants that hold relevant patents. The C-IoT pool’s initial main focus will be on smart meters and asset trackers. “The IoT market has been in development for about a decade, however only now we see clear early signs of widespread roll-out. The LTE-M and NB-IoT technologies are an obvious pick to connect products and services, and with this pool, available already in an early phase of technology adoption, we will remove a lot of questions and concerns by giving easy, transparent and reasonable access to the patents that the creators of the technology hold.” Mattia Fogliacco, President of the Sisvel Group. “It has been a pleasure putting this pool together, as so many parties with diverse background and business models showed resolve and common interest in creating a pool in the LPWAN IoT space.” said Sven Törringer, the program manager of the Sisvel C-IoT patent pool. He added: “This has been a harmonious process and we are convinced that the offer we bring to the market will not only reduce friction and concerns, but rather boost the interest in the adoption of the LTE-M and NB-IoT standards in IoT products, allowing for swift investments in this sense.” LTE-M and NB-IoT are cellular LPWAN IoT standards that followed out of the 4G LTE standard. They offer a solution for low power connectivity of IoT products, that may compete with the functionality offered by a number of other technologies, such as LoRaWAN, Sigfox, WiFi, MIOTY, Bluetooth, various mesh network technologies, etc, and combinations thereof. By offering a clear framework for obtaining licenses under the pool’s portfolio of LTE-M and NB-IoT SEPs, Sisvel is making it easier for manufacturers of IoT devices to make a balanced choice between the available technologies. The Sisvel pool has committed itself to make the terms of LTE-M and NB-IoT competitive, to encourage the use of the LPWAN cellular IoT standards, helping to achieve a level playing field. About Sisvel Sisvel International S.A. is the holding company of the Sisvel Group. Sisvel is a world leader in fostering innovation and managing IP. The group identifies, evaluates and maximizes the value of IP assets for its partners around the world, providing firms with a revenue stream which can be reinvested in innovation for the generation of future revenues. Sisvel has 40 years’ experience in the management of successful patent portfolios, including those relating to audio compression standards (MP3 and MPEG audio), as well as broadcasting and digital terrestrial television standards maintained by the Digital Video Broadcasting Project. Currently Sisvel operates patent pools and joint licensing programs in the fields of mobile communication, wireless local area networking 802.11, video coding and digital video broadcasting.

Increasing Implementation of IoT in Several End-use Verticals to Set Stage for PIR Sensors, States Fact.MR

FACT.MR | December 14, 2022

As per this new study by Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the global PIR sensor market is set for a valuation of US$ 647 million in 2023 and is projected to surge ahead at a CAGR of 12.3% during the forecast period (2023-2033). The market is predicted to grow rapidly with the expanding semiconductor industry and its applications in various countries. PIR sensors have a more complex nature than any of the other sensors such as FSRs, photocells, and tilt switches. The sensor's input and output results are affected by multiple variables. These are basically pyroelectric sensors that detect infrared radiations in the surrounding environment. PIR sensors (PIRs) use heat radiation from bodies to identify the presence of people and animals. This can be used for unlocking doors or starting a video recording. PIRs are commonly utilized because of their less power consumption feature. PIR sensors have previously been used to generate binary events, such as whether a person or animal is present or not. Since then, the employment of PIR sensors has been seen in numerous advanced applications.
