Motorola and Huawei Settle Nokia Siemens Spat
Motorola Solutions and Huawei today announced that they've reached an agreement over the transfer of Huawei's intellectual property to Nokia Siemens Networks. Motorola is selling a portion of its wireless networking business to Nokia Siemens. Huawei sued the companies to block the sale, as Huawei feared that Motorola would transfer intellectual property owned by Huawei to its rival Nokia Siemens as part of the deal. The companies have agreed that Motorola Solutions can transfer its commercial agreements with Huawei to Nokia Siemens for a fee. Nokia Siemens may receive and use that intellectual property to service the networks Motorola deployed using Huawei’s products and technologies. The acquisition is still being reviewed by the Chinese Ministry of Commerce, but has received regulatory approval from the U.S. government.
