antenna manufacturers in the world. The settlement includes a technology
transfer of Fractus’s entire worldwide portfolio of base station antenna
patents to CommScope, adding to an already impressive 15,000 patents worldwide,

of the technology transfer to CommScope, the pending dispute between the
parties has been dismissed (Fractus S.A. v. CommScope Technologies, LLC et al.,
Civil Action No. 2:19-CV-255).
“We are excited about this agreement and believe that CommScope
is a perfect partner to deploy our patented technology into its worldwide
deployment of base station antennas,” said Ruben Bonet, president of Fractus.

CommScope’s base station antenna portfolio and will enable us to offer new and
innovative features that will provide significant value to our base station
antenna customers,” commented Farid Firouzbakht, senior vice president, RF
