QUALCOMM and Nortel Sign Cross-License Agreement

QUALCOMM and Nortel announced an agreement that extends and expands the patent and product scope of their previous CDMA cross-license agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, QUALCOMM has granted Nortel a royalty-bearing license under its patent portfolio to manufacture and sell infrastructure products for use in CDMA and GSM wireless networks, and Nortel has granted QUALCOMM a license under its patent portfolio to manufacture and sell components for use in CDMA subscriber devices (including multi-mode CDMA/GSM devices) and infrastructure products. "CDMA" includes CDMA2000(R), WCDMA and TD-SCDMA. The agreement also provides each party with additional patent rights beyond CDMA and GSM, but does not cover Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) / Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) (other than certain IEEE 802.11 and MediaFLO rights).
