Webinar: Who is Leading the 5G Patent Race?

August 22, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT


Join Dr. Tim Pohlmann, CEO and Founder of IPlytics (recently acquired by LexisNexis), on Tuesday, August 22, 2023, at 12 PM ET, for a wide-ranging conversation about who is leading the increasingly competitive 5G patent race, with geopolitical implications as companies and countries vie for technical leadership in critical technologies. Join Robert Giles, Senior Vice President, and Chief IP Counsel at Qualcomm, Tuomas Saukkonen, Head of Cellular Standards Patent Portfolio at Nokia, and Mang Zhu, Chief IP Strategy Officer, and Head of Patent Asset Management at ZTE USA, in a discussion moderated by Gene Quinn, founder of IPWatchdog.com and twice named one of the 50 most influential people in the IP community.

In addition to taking your questions, the panel will discuss:

  • The new demands on cellular technology due to the significant increase in the number of devices, the explosion in volume of data exchanges and need for minimum latency.
  • How intellectual property professionals across industries in this technology revolution need to deal with 5G standard essential patents (SEPs) and implement connectivity standards.
  • How licensing of 5G SEPs is set to become one of the most highly lucrative markets.
