CommScope resolves Advanced Lightning Technology dispute

CommScope, a global provider of infrastructure solutions for communications networks, has resolved a dispute with Advanced Lightning Technology, Ltd. relating to CommScope´s stackable hanger patents that are utilized in CommScope´s SnapStak® cable hangers, the company said.

CommScope had alleged that Advanced Lightning Technology was selling stackable hangers that infringe CommScope´s patents, specifically US Patent numbers 6,354,543 and 6,899,305. As part of the resolution, Advanced Lightning Technology has agreed to immediately discontinue sales of its infringing products.

The parties reached a settlement, where the infringing party acknowledged its infringement of both patents and paid an undisclosed sum to the company. The settlement also required that the party cease any further production of the infringing products.
