Ericsson reveales SEP royalty rates for 5G mobile phone networks

Ericsson has revealed its standard essential patent (SEP) royalty fee price range for 5G mobile phone networks.

In an interview published on Bloomberg yesterday, Ericsson’s chief IP officer Gustav Brismark said taht the vendor will charge up to $5 per phone for higher-end handsets, though it would go as low as $2.50 for less expensive devices.

“We believe by setting a price that’s reasonable, it would serve as a reference to other patent holders and to other companies that need to take a license,” Brismark is quoted as saying.
