GSMA: Multiple Mobile Operators Launch Live Commercial Low Power Wide Area Networks in Licensed Spectrum Worldwide
The GSMA today announced that momentum behind Mobile IoT, or licensed Low Power Wide Area (LPWA), networks continues to grow on a global basis. To date, 23 mobile operators have commercially launched 41 Mobile IoT networks worldwide across both NB-IoT1 and LTE-M2. This growth is supported by 34 IoT Labs and an expanding community of over 800 organisations in the GSMA’s Mobile IoT Innovators Community. According to GSMA Intelligence forecasts, by 2025 there will be 3.1 billion cellular IoT connections, including 1.8 billion licensed LPWA connections.
“2018 is the year that Mobile IoT networks will scale. We have seen huge growth in the availability of commercial networks in licensed spectrum and anticipate seeing many more launches this year. This is underpinned by an expanding community of organisations developing innovative new solutions and a number of IoT Labs helping companies to test out new products and services,” said Alex Sinclair, Chief Technology Officer, GSMA. “Mobile IoT networks are fast becoming the defacto global IoT solution, as only licensed, managed mobile services can provide the secure low power connection that can meet future demand.”
The GSMA also announced that there are now 34 IoT Labs in operation around the world which are available to any operator, module vendor or application provider to develop LPWA devices and applications for a wide variety of different verticals. The Labs provide organisations with the opportunity to perform end-to-end and interoperability testing on the network. AT&T became the latest operator to participate in the IoT Labs initiative, with the support of three AT&T Foundry locations in Atlanta, Georgia and Plano and Houston, Texas, and the AT&T Device Radio Lab (DRL) in Austin, Texas.

Price f(x) Files Petitions with US Patent and Trademark Office to Invalidate Vendavo’s Patents and Launches a Counter Lawsuit17.12.2018 07:08 | Pressemelding
Price f(x), the global leader in cloud pricing software, has filed petitions for “Covered Business Method (“CBM”) Review” of four Vendavo patents, and will imminently file a fifth, which together will cover challenges to all of the patent claims that Vendavo has asserted in litigation between the parties. In Price f(x)’s view, each of Vendavo’s patents qualifies for the specialized CBM procedure created by US Congress to “crackdown on low-quality business method patents.” Price f(x)’s petitions challenge Vendavo’s patents on a variety of grounds, including in all cases that the claims are directed to patent-ineligible abstract ideas (e.g., math for pricing of products), and in many cases that Vendavo simply tried to claim more than it actually invented. The petitions are now pending in the U.S. Patent Office, which should make an initial ruling on Price f(x)’s petitions in approximately six months. Price f(x) is concurrently moving to stay the patent portion of the parties’ litigation
