Carlson Wireless Technologies, Inc. announced today that it will be offering for sale three patents with broad application in the WiMax and 3G arenas at The Ocean Tomo Live IP Auction in Chicago on October 30. US Patents 5,959,982; 6,693,890; and 5,745,480 are all directed to the field of telecommunication and will be offered as Lots 59, 60 and 61, respectively.

Carlson Wireless is taking this opportunity to auction these particular patents to generate capital that will assist in the development of its next generation of their product line. These patents have generated a significant amount of interest due to their potential applications in the WiMax and 3G standards. Potential licensees include Wireless Service Providers, Wireless Hardware Manufacturers, Wireless Telecommunications Providers and Cell Phone Equipment Manufacturers.

"Currently the direction we are taking with our product line is in a specialized market and we won't likely be able to gain the embedded value these patents might offer," said Jim Carlson, founder and CEO. "We believe that another better suited company will find value in these patents that have such a broad application in the WiMax and 3G arenas. Our business model has us expanding into WiMax and 3G when the technology matures to meet our market niche and so for now it seems appropriate to have someone else have a go at it."
