8:48 AM4G Open Patent Alliance
Members of the WiMAX ecosystem have formed the Open Patent Alliance (OPA) in June 2008 with the primary
goal to foster global tools that will help ensure successful and broad adoptions of 4G wireless. The OPA accomplishes this goal by creating the fair, transparent and balanced IPR licensing structure (patent pool) to accelerate the global adoption of WiMAX, simultaneously fostering broader choice and lowering costs for WiMAX technologies.
Current OPA members include Acer, Alvarion, Cisco, Clearwire, Huawei Technologies, Intel Corporation and Samsung Electronics as well as newly announced associate members Beceem, GCT Semiconductor, Sequans and UQ Communications.
