IP protection for telecoms & 5G technology

With the development of 5G infrastructure and the Internet of Things, the advancement of telecommunications technology increasingly pervades our lives. In recent years its importance has grown significantly across many sectors including automotive, where effective and secure communication between vehicles is becoming an essential consideration, and healthcare, which relies on fast, low-latency communication for time-critical medical applications.

The proliferation of so much new technology means that it’s important to protect your intellectual property in a way which provides effective coverage. It’s also vital to ensure that your patent infringement risk is fully considered in a sector where there are many significant players.
