Re: Intel Buys Powerwave Patents

When a company begins to sell its patent, it is always the first sign of trouble. And the company that buys most times may not just be for the technology but for the protection to enter that sector.

@goafrit, I agree. Intel has so many irons in the fire that amassing a large patent portfolio would be in its best interest.

May be Intel is doing this buy off keeping IoT in mind.These days buying and selling of patents is a big business.

This is an interesting development indeed. Intel deserves the benefit of doubt here, I bellieve there is a plan to solidify its position in the back-end cellular networks / C-RAN effort as cited in the article. How ever, I disagree with the analyst's (Brookwood) view that Intel is out to strike some fear into competitors in that space.  I have never known Intel to be a patent troll and in this case I believe the acquisition is to safeguard its development efforts in C-RAN.

>> "A clever patent lawyer can go after lots of people who are using the technology in different ways than patent holder intended originally," he said

I am not sure Intel bought this for any purpose than defend itself as it moves into new business segments where it might have not had lots of IPs. With these patents, it can play offense and defense knowing that anyone that attacks it will not see the other cheek. Patent and indeed IP management is a key part of the business now.
