FatPipe Networks Responds to XRoads Networks Release Containing Misleading Information in the Current '143 Patent Lawsuit

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Apr 20, 2011) - FatPipe Networks™, the inventor and holder of eight patents and 168 claims for multiline WAN redundancy and load balancing products, announces today that information posted in a press release by Daren French of XRoads Networks on April 12, 2011 is factually misleading and inaccurate.

Daren French of XRoads Networks stated in the press release that it had "...just recently been provided with documentation in which FatPipe Networks, Inc. states that XRoads Networks does not appear to infringe on its '143 patent." The referenced document was served upon XRoads on September 18, 2009, and before XRoads produced additional source code as a result of FatPipe obtaining two court orders requiring XRoads to produce the source code. In connection with the Court ordering XRoads to produce additional code, court sanctions were issued against XRoads Networks, and FatPipe was awarded attorney's fees. The 2009 document is not FatPipe's position. FatPipe's position is that XRoads is infringing FatPipe patent no. 7,269,143 as well as FatPipe patent no. 7,444,506. FatPipe is continuing its case against XRoads Networks for patent infringement.

XRoads Networks has also stated that it recently filed a motion against FatPipe. FatPipe will vigorously dispute the motion and allegations contained therein, which FatPipe feels are baseless.

Furthermore, FatPipe recently announced it obtained another patent. The U.S. Patent, No. 7,877,510, titled, "Domain Name Resolution Making IP Address Selections in Response to Connection Status when Multiple Connections are Present," is related to DNS technology for automatic inbound load balancing and failover, a core patent for multiline ISP link load balancing.

FatPipe's intellectual property includes seven other U.S. Patents in the field of multiline redundancy and load balancing technology: No. 6,493,341, No. 6,253,247, No. 6,295,276, No. 6,775,235, No. 7,269,143, Patent No. 7,444,506, and U.S. Patent No. 7,406,048.

FatPipe Networks will actively enforce the protection of its patents to the full extent of the law from companies that practice any of the patent claims. Companies concerned about possible patent infringements can call Sanchaita Datta at FatPipe Networks.
