Ericsson licenses our standard-essential patents on Fair, Reasonable and Non-Discriminatory terms so that others can use our standardized technology as a foundation for new ideas.

Ericsson’s commitment to technological innovation is based on the idea that competition drives new ideas. Our vision of the future is one where people have the freedom to exchange ideas, connecting individuals and communities with one another. Interoperability is a key to this future, and F/RAND licensing supports these processes. Our commitment to F/RAND principles give others fair access to standards, thus spurring competition and promoting a balanced technological ecosystem.
