TYLER – A Michigan technologies company and a Texas holdings company are suing Ruckus Wireless over allegations of patent infringement that deals with a piece of Ethernet terminal equipment.
Chrimar Systems Inc., doing business as CMS Technologies, and Chrimar Holding Co. LLC, filed a lawsuit July 1 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Tyler Division against Ruckus Wireless Inc. of Sunnyvale, citing patent infringement.
According to the complaint, Chrimar is the owner of the 012 Patent, titled System and Method for Adapting a Piece of Terminal Equipment, and Holding is the exclusive licensee of the 012 Patent.
