Communications & Internet
Standardized communication networks (DSL, 2G, 3G, 4G, etc.) are a big innovation driver and an enabling technology of the recent decades. They are the basis for Internet technologies, such as search engines, social networks, and sales platforms. The fifth generation of wireless communications systems, 5G, is currently being standardized. With it will come ultra-reliable connections and very low latencies (URLLC). And thus a digitization and integration of machines and systems engineering focused on serving the Industry 4.0. With the introduction of artificial intelligence and machine learning, we are already on the brink of the next wave of innovation.
Software-based inventions, which occur very often in this environment, can be difficult to patent. They might either be claimed too abstract for patenting or too narrow. We know how to obtain the broadest possible scope of protection for your invention, in particular if you intend a standardessential patent.
