CommScope settles Advanced Lightning patent fight

Wireless networks company CommScope said it resolved a dispute with Advanced Lightning Technology, Ltd. relating to CommScope’s stackable hanger patents that are utilized in CommScope’s SnapStak cable hangers.

CommScope had alleged that Advanced Lightning Technology was selling stackable hangers that infringe CommScope’s patents, specifically US Patent numbers 6,354,543 and 6,899,305.

CommScope said that as part of the resolution, Advanced Lightning Technology has agreed to immediately discontinue sales of its infringing products.

“We regret the sales of the infringing products and are committed to only selling genuine, patented CommScope SnapStak cable hangers in the future,” said David Riley, chief executive officer of Advanced Lightning Technology.
