ADC and AFL Reach FTTX Licensing Agreement

ADC and AFL Telecommunications have settled their patent infringement suit. Under the agreement, ADC has added AFL as another licensee to certain patents pertaining to ADC's fiber-to-the-premises (FTTX) technology. ADC's patent technology relates to fiber distribution hubs and optical splitter modules that are widely deployed in an FTTX environment.

"AFL Telecommunications is the second company to take a license to ADC's patented FTTX technology under ADC's FTTX licensing program, which provides further recognition of the value of our portfolio to the FTTX market," said Jaxon Lang, vice president, Global Connectivity Solutions - Americas for ADC.
