Nokia and Qualcomm have entered into a new agreement covering various standards, including GSM, EDGE, CDMA, WCDMA, HSDPA, OFDM, WiMAX, LTE and other technologies.

Under the terms of the new 15-year agreement, Nokia has been granted a license under all Qualcomm’s patents for use in Nokia’s mobile devices and Nokia Siemens Networks’ infrastructure equipment. Further, Nokia has agreed not to use any of its patents directly against Qualcomm, enabling the company to integrate Nokia’s technology into its chipsets.


The financial structure of the settlement includes an up-front payment and on-going royalties payable to Qualcomm. Nokia has also agreed to assign ownership of a number of patents to Qualcomm, including patents declared as essential to WCDMA, GSM and OFDMA.
