Hytera Statement on Regional Court of Mannheim’s First Instance Determination
Bad Münder, 18 July 2018
Hytera Mobilfunk GmbH (HMF) learned on July 17th that the Regional Court of Mannheim, Germany, had decided that a squelch and noise suppression functionality of our two-way radios sold in Germany infringes a patent held by Motorola Solution, Inc. (MSI). This is a court of first instance ruling.
HMF disagrees with the decision of the Regional Court of Mannheim. We are reviewing the ruling and will appeal. In the meantime, however, HMF has suspended the sale of products that might be affected by the related injunction. HMF continues to believe that our products do not infringe and that the patent asserted is invalid.
Hytera’s dealers and customers benefit from a full range of high-quality, high-performance devices with functionality for a wide range of applications. Hytera will continue to develop and deliver innovative, high-quality professional mobile radio solutions to its dealers and customers in Germany and around the world.
