Here’s how you can identify standard essential patents in your portfolio

If you’re someone who manages a telecom portfolio of 500+ patents, or want to use your patents in cross-licensing with ICT companies or Telco, I’m sure having your patents listed in SEP pools might be one of your biggest goals. After all, standard essential patents are no less than a golden egg laying goose. 

But are you sure you're aware of all of the standard essentials within your portfolio? It’s easy to find when you have a few hundred patents but when dealing with a healthy portfolio of thousands of patents, finding out potential SEPs from them is not only exhausting, there is hardly any efficient way to do it. 

In my years of experience of working in the Telecom industry, I have helped a lot of clients in finding SEPs in their portfolio. 

Me and my team recently uncovered the real figures and owners of Core 5G Standard Essential patents after analysing more than 12000 patents declared to ETSI standards. The report is one of the most accurate depictions of 5G SEP ownership in the market to date, and was appreciated by dozens of media houses and many Telecom giants. 

Now, in this webinar, me and my colleague Arindam shared a few tips as to how we help our clients identify standard essential patents within their portfolios. These strategies will help you spot SEPs in even large portfolios of 1000+ patents, efficiently and effectively.
