OPPO Kenya Inks Patent Deals with Intel, Ericsson
OPPO and Ericsson have signed a multi-year global patent license agreement, including a collaboration on a number of business projects.
Ericsson is one of the leading providers of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the world. The deal with Ericsson is the latest, in a series of patent license agreements by OPPO with key telecommunication industry partners including Qualcomm, Dolby, and Nokia.
Additionally, OPPO has purchased rights to over 500 patents from Ericsson, covering countries from a global perspective, including Kenya. Securing communications patents from Intel and Ericsson will serve to bolster OPPO’s technological development capacity as the company grows its business in global markets.
Jesse Wu, Brand Manager, OPPO Kenya said, “OPPO has always placed intellectual property rights as our top priority. We look forward to working with Ericsson to drive cutting-edge innovation in products and services. “We are pleased to enter into agreements of this kind with Intel and Ericsson. The communications patents will help us focus on offering better products for our customers.”
Following a patent-first strategy, OPPO attaches great importance to the patent and reserve accumulation. As of January 2019, the company has filed more than 33,000 patent applications worldwide and owns more than 8,000 granted patents. OPPO will continue to work closely with leading industry partners to bring the best products and experiences to consumers globally.
