Ribbon files patent lawsuit against Metaswitch

Cloud communications firm Ribbon Communications Inc said its subsidiary filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Metaswitch in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.

“This lawsuit seeks enhanced damages for Metaswitch’s continued infringement of seven Ribbon patents (from Ribbon subsidiary GENBAND) that Metaswitch has already been found to infringe in an earlier lawsuit,” said Ribbon.

“The lawsuit filed today also seeks damages resulting from Metaswitch’s false and misleading statements to the market regarding the earlier suit.”
