Ericsson is suing Samsung for patent infringement
Ericsson is suing Samsung for patent infringement

The United States International Trade Commission (ITC) opened an investigation after Ericsson alleged that Samsung had breached some of the patents covering 4G and 5G wireless cellular infrastructure systems.

The United States International Trade Commission is an independent federal and judicial agency in the United States that provides lawmakers and the executive branch with commercial expertise.

"Counterfeit Samsung products were found on the side of a cell tower, including antennas, radios, base stations, and basic network products for wireless communication with cell phones and other cellular devices," Ericsson said.

Ericsson filed a complaint with the International Trade Commission on January 15, accusing Samsung of illegally using wireless communications patents on cell phones, tablets, and smart TVs. The investigation has since begun.

Ericsson filed a lawsuit against Samsung in the US District Court in Texas last month, accusing Samsung of patent infringement.

"If the challenge succeeds, it will not destroy the existing cellular network," said Ericsson in a speech to the US International Trade Commission.

Ericsson's domestic and international production, as well as products of other suppliers, will be able to meet the demands of the domestic market.

Samsung told the US International Trade Commission that Ericsson did not support this claim in practice.

In the lawsuit, Samsung said: In the past two years, the US company Samsung has supplied thousands of 5G base stations to US network operators, including Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T Inc.

The committee said: No decision has been taken in this regard and the case will be referred to the administrative judge who will decide in the session and issue a preliminary ruling in the presence of an illegal act.

The last patent ownership dispute between the two companies took place in 2012 when Ericsson filed a lawsuit against Samsung's patent infringement suit.

It took two years to fix this problem: The South Korean company paid the Swedish company $ 650 million plus years of spending to end the fight.
