Who is leading the 5G patent race for edge computing?

In the future, half of the world’s data volume will no longer be generated by or between people but by vehicles, sensors, or other various types of networked devices, according to some predictions. Not only the number of devices but also the volume of data continues to increase dramatically. Telecom equipment supplier Ericsson estimates that global data traffic will increase fivefold to 136 exabytes per month within the next five years, compared to today. The expectation is that a typical end user will generate up to 1.5 gigabytes of data per day, and a vehicle with up to 4 terabytes even several times that amount.The 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project), the organisation responsible for cellular standards development, already had these new requirements in mind when it defined the fifth-generation mobile network 5G. At its core, 5G was...

Receiving the Fist Office Actions is a key step in the process for the grant of a patent in the administering jurisdiction. () () (FRA:38A) continues to make progress with patent applications for its 12CQ quantum computing qubit processor chip and has received First Office Actions (FOAs) from the Patent Offices of the US, China and Australia. Receipt of the FOAs is a key step in the process for the grant of a patent in the administering jurisdiction. International patent applications (IPAs) associated with the 12CQ chip have been lodged in six jurisdictions including Korea, Europe and Hong Kong.  The European and Korean IPAs have progressed in the substantive examination procedures since October 2020, and more recently the Korean IPA, following the granting of the patent in Japan.  Archer Materials received its IPA in Japan in January...
