    Samsung and Nokia extend patent license agreement for five years -- scope unclear for now

    Nokia just issued a press release announcing an extension of its patent license agreement with Samsung for five years:

    Samsung extends the patent license agreement between Nokia and Samsung for five years; companies will enter into binding arbitration to settle the amount of additional compensation

    Espoo, Finland - Nokia announced that Samsung has extended a patent license agreement between Nokia and Samsung for five years. The agreement would have expired at the end of 2013. According to the agreement, Samsung will pay additional compensation to Nokia for the period commencing from January 1, 2014 onwards, and the amount of such compensation shall be finally settled in a binding arbitration which is expected to be concluded during 2015. "This extension and agreement to arbitrate represent a hallmark of constructive resolution of licensing disputes, and are expected to save significant transaction costs for both parties", said Paul Melin, Chief Intellectual Property Officer of Nokia.

    Nokia will retain its industry-leading patent portfolio following the proposed transaction to sell substantially all of its Devices & Services business to Microsoft and sees further opportunity to create value by investing in innovation, and by actively managing its patent portfolio and licensing activities.

    So far, so good. Congratulations to the two deal partners.

    The announcement says nothing about the scope. There's no doubt that this agreement involves at the very least Nokia's cellular standard-essential patents (SEPs).

    Nokia's SEPs are broadly-licensed, while its non-SEPs are not. The announcement does not say that this patent license agreement covers Nokia's entire portfolio. It just says "a patent license agreement between Nokia and Samsung".

    As far as I know, most of Nokia's existing license agreements are only SEP.

    Jan 8 big day in court

    Actually, that dollar figure would go to Ericson if the court deems Xiaomi is liable for patent infringement. Finally Chinese manufactures will pay if they plan on expanding outside of China. Patent holders will get them on both fronts at this point.

    The real question is when will Nokia strike. Maybe we need to see the outcome of the Samsung arbitration. Either way, collecting on licenses is very close at hand.

    Looks like Chinese phone manufacturers will finally be paying royalties.

    "The court today gave Xiaomi a temporary permission to continue importing phones which are based on chip sets from Qualcomm," as long as it puts 100 rupees ($1.56) per phone into an account with the court, the Swedish company said in a statement. "This is a temporary decision until the court in the first instance can look into the matter more closely."
    Ericsson said the next hearing on the issue is scheduled for Jan. 8, and it will argue that no Xiaomi devices should be allowed no matter which chip set they use because all of them are using Ericsson technology.
    "Xiaomi needs a license from Ericsson for all of their phones imported to India, which will be clarified in the upcoming hearing," Ericsson said.

  • I've taken the time to buy the last few days into attractive positions. Nokia is still my favorite. I have an aggressive long-term strategy, meaning I try and buy with every dip. When you get past the market's day to day hoopla the focus should be on individual stocks and Nokia will progress past any of these market interruptions.

    The problem with Suri's speech was that he made it seem like Nokia would be limited in growth. Many questions were also unanswered on how exactly revenue growth would materialize. Thus the slight selloff that day. This overshadowed the massive amount of positives. In the long-term, Nokia's growth will be in multiple area's that will be pursued. There will be revenues from all this. The sky is the limit, but without specifics, Suri couldn't say exactly how much.

    Nokia is on the cusp of transforming in front of our eyes. In the near future it will be a much more robust technological leader and most of us will be affected by it in our daily lives. All this has been developing and is underway. By next earnings we will be discussing revenues from new and exciting areas that current investors are unaware of.

    Consistent growth in Networks, new revenues from Here, a slew of products coming out of Technology division and finally intellectual property and the licensing Nokia gets from it will drive the value of this company much, much higher.

    Magic Quadrant for Small Cell Equipment

    by jeffreber44 Nov 20, 2014 9:49 AM
    jeffreber44 jeffreber44 Nov 20, 2014 9:50 AM Flag

    Earlier this year and for the third year in a row, Nokia Networks was named as a leader in Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for LTE Network Infrastructure”. Now it’s our small cells portfolio’s turn, which has just been placed in the leaders’ quadrant in Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for Small Cell Equipment 2014”.

    We believe this placement is the result of our strategy when building a small cells portfolio that is focused on being the best in the market. One of our guiding principles is to always put the needs of mobile broadband operators at the forefront of our small cells roadmap planning.

    That’s why we ensured that our Flexi Zone base stations have software and feature parity with our macro base stations for best-in-class performance. With Flexi Zone, operators can add almost unlimited capacity and coverage to meet growing demand in outdoor urban areas and indoor locations

    That’s why we created Liquid Applications, which resides in the base station to provide ultra-low latency and high throughput as well as direct access to real-time radio network information, enabling operators to offer added value services to their subscribers.

    And it’s why we recently further enhanced our Nokia Services for HetNets with a new cluster-based solution for small cell delivery that reduces deployment time, as well as planning and optimization capabilities built on 3-D geolocation. Operators can now understand indoor traffic requirements floor-by-floor and thus provide more efficient indoor small cell deployments.

    Making it into the leaders’ quadrant is something we are proud of. More importantly we believe it shows that we have listened to operators and what they tell us are their priorities. With this insight, we’ve been able to implement the solutions they need.

    Keeping in front of the pack is nice, but it really means that, when it comes to small cells, we can help keep our customers ahead of the game.

  • Nokia Networks

    Nokia Networks addresses many product areas within the small cell market. Its small cell solutions incorporate its Liquid Applications concept to support value-added applications that require analytics and caching features. Nokia partners with Ruckus Wireless, and has a reseller agreement with the same vendor for Nokia's carrier Wi-Fi solutions. Nokia has associated heterogeneous-network professional services to support small cells.

    Nokia offers the most comprehensive product coverage of the vendors in this Magic Quadrant, with scalable solutions. Its solutions can enable neutral-hosting multioperator networks, and its Flexi Zone product suite can operate with a wide range of transport options.
    The sale of its device business to Microsoft provided Nokia with cash, which it has used as the basis for sound decisions about its financial structure. It now has an opportunity to focus its business on the mobile broadband sector.

    Nokia was relatively late to market with its small cell solution package, and only recently started to move its flagship Flexi Zone product suite out of CSP trials and into large-scale deployments.
    Nokia needs to align more of its services with its product solution to improve its go-to-market capability.

    It is a zero risk structure. Since Foxconn wants to get involved, and who better than Nokia to license superior tech to them, the possibility of endless products stands before us. You're correct Sydney. We now see Suri's/Nokia's vision even clearer. Very, very big move revealed.

    The plan is taking shape today. I hope more people understand now. We all have room to make money from here. A few people are very good to listen to on this board, Joshua3xxx being one of them. Hope by now this clears up the confusion.

    Nokia will rapidly begin demonstrating great execution.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • First off, it's Android! Finally! Many Android manufacturers can't swing much profit because they have to cross-license technology. Nokia won't need to in this case. Foxconn want's to be part of the movement and this pairing works out great. Nokia supplies the tech and collects on the IP. No cost associated whatsoever.

    So what will be the next product announced.....

    Microsoft was holding back Nokia and it's so apparent now. Today, that is all done with.

    Mr Haidamus also pointed out that the company kept most of the best engineers, despite the sale of its devices business. “Everyone thought they had all moved,” he said, when just 35 went to Microsoft. “This is a huge innovation team.”
