Patent suits filed v AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint

Fractus S.A., a Barcelona-based antenna technology company, said it has filed lawsuits against AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint for alleged infringement of its United States patents on cellular base station antenna technologies.

“Founded in 1999, Fractus developed innovative cellular base station antennas that allow superior operation in multiple frequency bands utilizing a compact design,” said Fractus.

“Its patented technology has been incorporated into antennas used by all four of the major U.S. cellular carriers.”

Fractus said its suit was filed in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Texas (Marshall Division).

Fractus is represented by Michael Ng and Daniel Zaheer of Kobre & Kim.

Fractus said it holds an intellectual property rights portfolio “of more than 40 inventions protected through over 120 patents and patent applications in the United States, Europe and Asia.”
