Nishant Batra, head of engagement practices, Ericsson, says that the roll out of 100 smart cities in India, over a period of time, will give the company a huge platform to deploy its smart city solutions.
Micromax was not only offender in the patent case filed by Ericsson. In September this year, upon the plea of the same company, the court had asked another domestic handset manufacturer, iBall, to pay royalty.
Telecom gear maker Ericsson has partnered with Hewlett-Packard to drive innovation in mobile networking and bring in a set of wi-fi and LTE solutions providing customers with voice and data connectivity.
Delhi High Court on Wednesday ordered an interim injunction on iBall from importing mobiles, handsets, devices and tablets that infringe on the former’s patent on technologies essential to manufacture these products.
Ericsson said by 2020, smartphone subscriptions will more than double, reaching 6.1 billion, 70 per cent of the world's population will be using smartphones, and 90 per cent will be covered by mobile broadband networks.
