Huawei, Motorola Reach Settlement in IPR Dispute

Huawei PR, 4/13/11

Chinese telecom equipment and terminal manufacturer Huawei today announced an agreement with Motorola Solutions to settle all pending litigation between the two parties conditional upon the satisfaction of certain stipulations.

For its part, after further review of the matter, Motorola Solutions has agreed to withdraw its claims and dismiss, with prejudice, Huawei as a defendant in the Motorola vs. Lemko, et al. litigation pending in Chicago federal district court. For its part, Huawei has agreed to withdraw its claims and dismiss, with prejudice, its lawsuit against Motorola Solutions and Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) in Chicago federal district court. Huawei has also agreed to resolve its claims against Motorola Solutions and NSN by entering into an agreement that allows Motorola Solutions to transfer its commercial agreements with Huawei to NSN for a fee, and allows NSN to receive and use Huawei confidential IP to service networks Motorola deployed worldwide that use Huawei's products and technologies.

In 2000, Motorola and Huawei entered into a successful commercial relationship during which Motorola resold certain Huawei products under the Motorola name. Over the next ten years, Motorola purchased USD 880 mln in technology from Huawei that covered core networks and radio access networks.
