Amplified and GreyB collaborated to create the best-in-class report on 5G SEP

Who owns the 5G standard-essential patents (SEPs)?

100 billion devices. 1 Technology. Countless contenders.

5G technology is to be in 100 billion devices by 2030.

Companies who own 5G SEPs will define how the technology is implemented in industry. Such companies will reap billions of dollars in royalties in the coming 10-20 years.

Not all of the declared 5G SEPs are ‘truly essential’ to the 5G standard. The critical piece of this jigsaw is: who owns ‘truly essential’ patents to 5G? Owners of the truly essential patents will shape the industry.

GreyB and Amplified ventured into the task of finding this critical information for the industry. We made an effort to create free and open access to understand the SEP landscape of 5G in a very thorough manner.

If there is one thing which makes this report most meaningful and comprehensive, it is the patent review process followed by GreyB. GreyB reviewed each patent manually to identify if the patent declared as 5G SEP by the company is truly essential or not.

Describe the patent review process of this report?

Experienced patent researchers at GreyB read (i.e. a manual review) each and every patent which is part of 5G submission. After careful and detailed review, a judgement is made to identify which patent is truly essential to the 5G standard.

This by far is the most exhaustive review process (higher accuracy) in the industry on 5G patents. 

Specific details on process, methodology, data sources etc.  are disclosed in the report.

What’s inside this report?

Introduction to 5G Standards, governing bodies, and the role of standards in innovation.

The current state of 5G SEPs and systemic challenges.

Analysis of over 12,000 patent families and and findings on the top companies and their contribution to essential patents.

GreyB & Amplified

Over the last 18 years, GreyB has established itself as the top provider of patent research and technology consulting. GreyB believes high quality patents are central to business strategy. 

With 5G technology the way we communicate will change. Many industries from mobile, automobiles, retail, entertainment, consumer electronics, healthcare, manufacturing etc. are going through paradigm shifts in their business because of 5G. While 5G creates new opportunities and revenue streams for companies, it also poses threat to current business models.

5G Patents will be key to define the new industry landscape. GreyB partnered with Amplified to release a series of reports on the landscape of 5G.
