Spherix Incorporated Files Additional Complaint Against Verizon and Cisco Systems, Inc

Spherix Incorporated announced a litigation update on several matters: On May 1, 2015, Spherix filed an action against both Verizon and Cisco Systems, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Case No. 1:15-cv-576, alleging that Verizon and Cisco infringe eight Standard-Essential Patents owned by Spherix. Standard-Essential Patents cover technology that is required to implement a technology standard set by a Standard Setting Organization. Spherix's Standard Essential Patents relate to aspects of IEEE standards 802 and virtual local area network (VLAN) tagging on a network. VLAN tagging is used to help direct data flow over a network. This new suit is in addition to the suits already on file against Verizon in Virginia and Cisco in Delaware, and it involves different patents.

ESPN Sues Verizon Communications Inc

Walt Disney Co.'s (DIS) ESPN sports network has reportedly sued telecoms giant Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ) for an alleged breach of contract. In a suit filed in New York Supreme Court, ESPN has alleged that Verizon is wrongly including its programming in a new Custom TV service. The network is seeking an injunction and damages.

Level 3 and Verizon Enter into Interconnection Agreement

Level 3 Communications and Verizon have entered into a long-term, bilateral interconnection agreement related to their public IP networks. The interconnection agreement ensures customers on the two networks can continue to exchange data in an effective and efficient manner. As the Internet continues to grow and evolve, Internet service providers are negotiating business agreements that allow exchange of Internet traffic in a scalable, resilient and reliable manner. Focusing on the customer, this agreement allows consumers of both Level 3 and Verizon to enjoy high-performance speeds to enable new, high-bandwidth applications. The agreement contains provisions to add capacity and establish new interconnection locations between the two networks to stay ahead of growing traffic demands. The agreement also includes new connections for Verizon Digital Media Services' content delivery network to connect to Level 3's network globally, further improving quality for Verizon's CDN customers. This approach offers flexibility for each network while improving performance and reliability for the customers of both.
