Bridgewater, NJ (PRWEB) March 19, 2014
ThinkFire is pleased to announce its ETSI 3GPP Declared Essential Patent Database will be available for purchase beginning April 15, 2014. The database contains patents for all the major ETSI projects for 3GPP mobile telephony standards for smartphones, mobile devices, base stations, and network infrastructure equipment. The ThinkFire database has removed all duplicates from the raw ETSI patent declarations, associated patents with specific ETSI projects, and grouped patents by family. The database serves multiple purposes including patent licensing negotiations, IP strategy, competitive analysis, and independent verification of ETSI declared essential patent counts. Using patent family information, the geographic scope of a specific company’s essential patents can also be assessed. The companies, the ETSI projects, and the patents are all listed in the database. Typical patent data, including patent title, abstract, claims, priority date, and estimated expiration data, is also included.
“ThinkFire’s mission is to provide deep IP business analysis to enable our clients to make informed business decisions”, commented ThinkFire’s CEO Chris Sommers. “ThinkFire’s ETSI 3GPP Declared Essential Patent Database can save companies significant time in obtaining accurate patent data to enable their IP teams to answer specific questions about competitors’ IP. It's a simple make vs. buy decision.”
Typical questions the database provides answers to include,
- Who are the top patent holders for LTE?
- How many WCDMA German patents has InterDigital declared essential?
- Which Qualcomm patents are declared essential to HSDPA and GPRS?
- What is the average expiration date of the Motorola Mobility declared essential patents?
For additional information related to this database, including price and the availability of additional patent portfolio reports, please contact tkulesa(at)thinkfire(dot)com. All inquiries will be kept strictly confidential.
