Kasim Alfalahi of Avanci

Avanci announced that more than 100 million connected vehicles sold by more than 80 automotive brands are covered by an Avanci license, and that it predicts an additional 30-40 million connected vehicles to be licensed in the next year. Having licensed the majority of patented 2G, 3G, and 4G cellular technologies to the majority of the connected vehicle market, Avanci is the established industry solution for essential patent licensing in the automotive space.

“We are incredibly pleased with the overwhelming adoption of our solution across both the telecommunications and automotive industries,” says Kasim Alfalahi, founder and chief executive officer of Avanci. “This level of participation validates our long-standing commitment to offer a simple, predictable and efficient solution for the Internet of Things, benefiting new technology adoption. We look forward to making licensing simpler and more efficient for a wide range of companies, as we explore new programs for massive, critical, and industrial IoT.”

“We are grateful to all the participants in our automotive licensing program for joining our effort to create a new way to license patents. Our work to date is a strong foundation for building our planned program for 5G connected vehicles,” adds Laurie Fitzgerald, senior vice president at Avanci.

The auto makers participating in Avanci’s licensing programme for 4G connected vehicles benefit from a license to all the 2G, 3G, and 4G cellular standard essential patents of the 51 patent owners participating as licensors in the program today, as well as patent owners that join as licensors in the future. Many of the new brands under license can be found here.

Avanci has transformed the way companies share technology by licensing intellectual property from dozens of different patent owners in a single transaction, at fixed rates, paid once for the lifetime of the product. By streamlining the technology sharing process, Avanci provides IoT companies with an efficient and transparent way to access the wireless technology needed for connected products.
