Network-1 Technologies receives new patent, expanding M2M/IoT patent portfolio
Network-1 Technologies announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued U.S. Patent No. 10,382,422. The claims in the newly issued patent are generally directed towards methods of updating profiles on embedded universal integrated circuit cards. The newly issued '422 patent arises from a patent application contained in the M2M/IoT patent portfolio acquired by Network-1 in December 2017. The M2M/IoT Patent Portfolio relates to, among other things, the enabling technology for authenticating and using embedded SIM cards in next generation IoT, Machine-to-Machine, and other mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets and computers as well as automobiles and drones. With this latest issuance, the M2M/IoT Patent Portfolio now includes twenty-three issued U.S. patents and seven pending U.S. patent applications, plus seven additional pending non-U.S. patent applications. Network-1 anticipates further issuances of additional claims for the M2M/IoT Patent Portfolio.
