The 5G platform builds on the unprecedented success of the Avanci marketplace, which transformed the licensing landscape by licensing the vast majority of the 2G,3G and 4G cellular essential patents in a single agreement at fixed, fair and transparent rates. Currently, Avanci is now the go-to global licensing platform for connected vehicle and other IoT devices, spanning 38 patent owners and with 14 automative brands as licensees.
