Inventions at the Heart of Wireless
InterDigital’s research and development efforts address the core functionalities of wireless. As a result, our know-how and inventions reach across the wireless ecosystem, from device manufacturers to infrastructure providers and operators. Extend that reach over decades of development and the result is one of the most impressive patent portfolios in the industry: close to 20,000 U.S. and foreign issued patents and patent applications (as of June 30, 2012). And our team of close to 200 engineers continues to develop new technologies and find new solutions to issues, adding more than 1,000 worldwide patents and applications to our portfolio every year.
Beyond technology development, InterDigital is proud of our business practices. We have a comprehensive program of developing and protecting our intellectual property, and our licensing practices are considered exemplary by licensing and industry experts. The company is also a founding member of the Innovation Alliance - a coalition of entrepreneurial companies seeking to enhance America’s innovation environment by improving the quality of patents granted and protecting the integrity of the U.S. patent system.
