On April 25, 2007 the Company agreed to a settlement of its patent infringement litigation against D-Link Corporation and D-Link Systems, (collectively "D-Link") in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Tyler Division, for infringement of the Company's Remote Power Patent (U.S. Patent No. 6,218,930). Under the terms of the settlement, D-Link has agreed to enter into a license agreement for the Remote Power Patent the terms of which include monthly royalty payments of 3.25% of the net sales of D-Link branded Power over Ethernet products, including those products which comply with the IEEE 802.3af and 802.3at Standards, for the full term of the Remote Power Patent, which expires in March 2020. The royalty rate is subject to adjustment beginning after the first quarter of 2008 to a rate consistent with other similarly situated licensees of the Remote Power Patent based on units of shipments of licensed products. In addition, D-Link has agreed to pay Network-1 $100,000.
The Remote Power Patent relates to, among other things, the delivery of power over Ethernet cables in order to remotely power network connected devices including, among others, wireless switches, wireless access points, RFID card readers, VoIP telephones and network cameras. In June 2003, the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) approved the 802.3af Power over Ethernet ("PoE") standard which has led to the rapid adoption of PoE. The IEEE is currently working on the 802.3at Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE Plus) Standard which will increase the maximum power delivered to devices to 60 watts from the current 13 watts under 802.3af.
