MOSAID initiates legal action against Cisco for patents infringement
Company MOSAID Technologies Inc. has launched legal action against Cisco Systems by forwarding a complaint for patent infringement. Claim is delivered to the US International Trade Commission (ITC) in Washington, D.C. MOSAID's complaint describes that six of MOSAID's patents are infringed by several Cisco products, such as cable modems with Voice over IP (VoIP), Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches and routers, Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) wireless access points, cable modem wireless access points, PoE Internet Protocol (IP) phones. MOSAID has provided the official request to ITC to suspend the illegitimate importation and sale of these Cisco products in the United States.
"We filed this claim with the ITC because we are confident that Cisco, the global market leader in PoE-enabled networking and communications products, is infringing MOSAID's PoE patents and has to have a license," stated John Lindgren, President and Chief Executive Officer, MOSAID. "We are totally aimed to defend our intellectual property for the ultimate benefit of our shareholders." MOSAID's patents relate primarily to Power over Ethernet, a technology for wired Ethernet local area networks (LANs) that allows electrical current to be carried over data cables, rather than over electrical power cords.

MOSAID and Cisco are currently being embroiled in a patent infringement litigation case with respect to 10 of MOSAID's PoE patents, in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware. The case was launched by Cisco in August 2010. The six patents at issue in MOSAID's ITC complaint are also part of the Delaware case.
