This is to advise the IETF, in accordance with the IETF RFCs 3979 and 4879 that Alcatel Lucent (hereinafter “Alcatel Lucent”) believes the Alcatel Lucent patent application " Network Multi-Path Proxy Selection To Route Data Packets” (PCT/EP2018/051040) (the “Disclosed Patent(s)”), may be necessarily infringed by implementing the “draft-kanugovi-intarea-mams-framework-00”, “Multiple Access Management Services” (the “Contribution”).
To the extent that the Contribution is incorporated in an IETF RFC, Alcatel Lucent informs IETF that Alcatel Lucent and its Affiliates are prepared to grant a license on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory (“FRAND”) terms and conditions, subject to reciprocity from those seeking a licence, to implement such IETF RFC for those claims of the Disclosed Patent(s) only that would, in the absence of a license, be necessarily infringed by the making (or having made), using, selling, importing, or otherwise disposing of a technology implementing such IETF RFC. In this context, “necessarily infringed” means that infringement of such claims is technically necessary to implement such IETF RFC.
“Affiliate” of Alcatel Lucent means any legal entity that directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by or is under common control with Alcatel Lucent. Control in this context, exists where one entity owns more than fifty percent (50%) of the voting stock or equity in another entity, or regardless of stock or equity ownership, is otherwise able to direct its affairs or to appoint a majority of the members of the board of directors or an equivalent body to determine the course of action of the entity by virtue of its voting or other rights. Such entities shall only be deemed to be Affiliates, hereunder for as long as such control exists.
