Patent Trial and Appeal Board Dismisses Blueprint RF Petition to Invalidate Nomadix Captive Portal Patent

AGOURA HILLS, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 27, 2016) - The Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) today denied a petition for inter partes review filed by Hospitality Core Services LLC, d/b/a Blueprint RF (Blueprint RF), which challenged the validity of Nomadix's U.S. Patent No. 6,636,894 (the "'894 Patent"). The '894 Patent is one of several Nomadix patents relating to key technology for redirecting a user to a captive portal for authentication, billing or other functions.

After reviewing Blueprint RF's arguments, including all of the alleged prior art Blueprint RF submitted, the PTAB denied the petition in its entirety. The PTAB specifically found that Blueprint RF failed to demonstrate a reasonable likelihood that any claim of the '894 patent is unpatentable. 

"The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and Federal Courts have reviewed Nomadix's patents on several occasions," explains Fred Reeder, chief commercial and operating officer of Nomadix. "Every prior challenge has failed. Today's result is no different and confirms the value of our intellectual property."

Leading technology companies, including HP, AT&T and Aruba Networks, have licensed Nomadix patents for usage in their product portfolio.
