SEP Licensing for IoT | IPlytics Virtual Panel
The past years have shown that the wide use of connectivity technologies has become crucial across many industries. NB-IoT (NarrowBand IoT) and Long-Term Evolution for Machines (LTE-M) are a low-power, wide-area network (LPWAN) technologies specifically designed for Internet of Things (IoT) devices. With low power consumption and wide coverage, both technologies have the potential to transform the IoT landscape by enabling billions of connected devices to be deployed in a cost-effective and scalable manner. First use cases include Smart Metering, Asset Tracking, Agricultural Monitoring, Health Monitoring, Industrial Automation and many more.

Both NB-IoT and LTE-M are subject to thousands of so-called standard essential patents (SEPs) and the use of the standardized technologies will require implementers to sign license agreements with SEP holders and patent pools. While the licensing of SEPs is well known in the smartphone industry and has started to pick up in the auto industry, SEP licensing for IoT is in very early stages. This webinar will bring together implementers, patent holders, and pool administrators that have realized first SEP licensing deals in the IoT space. These experts will shed light on current licensing models, first accomplishments, and challenges ahead. Among other topics experts will discuss:

State of play – IoT markets today and where they are heading.
Different IoT verticals and the current market focus.
Does the IoT licensing market require any new approaches or are usual licensing programs also working?
What is important to consider when designing a successful IoT licensing program, i.e. one that serves the interest of the entire ecosystem?
