Hytera Statement on Motorola Solutions’ Litigation

 


We are disappointed that Motorola Solutions has chosen to bring lawsuits against Hytera rather than compete in the marketplace.  We are ready to
respond vigorously to Motorola Solutions allegations, and are fully confident that Hytera will be vindicated in U.S. federal court.

   

Today’s radio communications markets are evolving, demanding new solutions, and are best served by continuous innovation from all market participants.  Hytera devotes extensive investments and efforts to advancing its technology offerings and solutions to meet the growing needs of radio communications markets for products in TETRA, DMR, PDT and other radio technologies. 

  

Hytera is built on innovation.  Hytera has been one of the leading intellectual property owners in the industry over the last two decades.  Since filing its first patent application in 2000, Hytera has been awarded 418 patents worldwide covering numerous innovations and advancements, including 238 patents relating to digital products.  Hytera has been proactively protecting its innovative technologies. Given Hytera’s own global strategy of intellectual property protection, we have great respect for the intellectual property rights of others.

   

By choosing the courtroom over the marketplace, Motorola Solutions is running from legitimate competition and attempting to use its size and market position to intimidate and prevent other radio communications companies like Hytera from achieving the same level of success in the United States that it currently has around the world.  

  

On the other hand, as the fastest growing radio communications company in the world, Hytera embraces competition.  Competition results in increased innovation and more choices for dealers and customers – and our customers always come first.  Hytera will continue to stand by these principles and compete ethically and vigorously to bring cutting-edge products and solutions to the market. Nothing will change our focus.
