G.709 SEP Landscape

Cubicibuc’s ITU-T G.709 SEP Landscape report seeks to bring some clarity to the ITU-T G.709 patent landscape, by:

  • Identifying search criteria in order to identify potentially relevant set of candidate patents (the so-called candidate set)
  • Detailing the results of the searches
  • Technically reviewing the patents
  • Categorising the reviewed patents and estimating an overall size of the SEP landscape

This report is based on a review of patents by Cubicibuc’s technical team.

Cubicibuc’s landscaping methodology is based on established approaches and contains four main steps:

Search terms are based on multiple criteria, and from multiple sources:

For each patent in the Review Set we reviewed the claim language against the normative text in the technical recommendation. In our analysis we describe, in a few sentences, the basis of our conclusion and where appropriate the section of the ITU-T G.709 recommendation to which the patent maps.

Essentiality assessment categoriesDescription
1 – Potentially EssentialPotentially Technically Essential – all elements of the claim language map to normative text in the ITU-T G.709 technical recommendation
2 – RelevantNot technically essential – not fully mapped to normative text in the ITU-T G.709 technical recommendation
Possibly relevant. May relate to implementations of ITU-T G.709.
3 – Not relevantNot technically essential – not relevant to ITU-T G.709

The results of our analysis are captured in Cubicibuc’s ITU-T G.709 SEP Landscape report.
