LTE Modem Innovation Leader: Samsung & LG
In Mobile World Congress 2010, Samsung Electronics demonstrated live video streaming via the company’s own LTE network equipment on the Samsung netbook N150. Samsung also introduced the dongle type device GT-B3710 equipped with LTE baseband modem.
In recent TechIPm's analysis for LTE essential patent candidates (published patent applications and issued patents in the United States (USPTO) before March 1, 2010), Samsung ranked the second in IPR share for LTE baseband modem products. Essentiality analysis of the Samsung's LTE IPR also showed high quality of Samsung's LTE patent portfolio (ref. http://techipm-innovationfrontline.blogspot.com/2009/08/samsungs-lte-ipr-analysis-essential.html).
LG Electronics recently announced that its LD100 data modem has become LTE modem device to receive Telecom Engineering Center (TELEC) certification in Japan. LG already had an approval from the FCC in the US before the TELEC certification.
In recent TechIPm's analysis for LTE essential patent candidates, LG ranked 4th in IPR share for LTE baseband modem products. Essentiality analysis of the LG's LTE IPR also showed the highest quality of LG's LTE patent portfolio among IPR shareholders (ref. http://techipm-innovationfrontline.blogspot.com/2009/08/lgs-lte-ipr-analysis-essential-patent.html).
