Motorola and Nokia Corporation have entered a joint 4G license agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, Motorola and Nokia have extended the companies’ existing intellectual property licensing agreement to include 4G cellular technologies, such as LTE, WiMax and LTE-Advanced.
The companies did not divulge details of the agreement.
“We are pleased to extend our existing IP licensing agreement with Nokia to include 4G technologies and are confident this agreement will help foster continued innovation and technological advancement for the telecommunications industry,” said Kirk Dailey, corporate vice president of intellectual property, Motorola Mobility, Inc, in a statement.
Nokia says the agreement speaks to the fast progress the industry is making in resolving LTE licensing issues between the major patent holders. The Finnish OEM says that LTE has now become a key element of Nokia’s licensing program, and it expects strong returns for its work in the area.
