Over the course of the last decade, the Internet of Things (IoT) has made the rapid transition from an ambitious concept to the reality of an increasingly hyper-connected world. The rapid advance in technology is allowing the end-user to be connected to an infinite number of devices, with estimates predicting that tens of billions of units will operate with IoT in the next decade.
With its potential to transform entire industries, such as healthcare, retail, agriculture, transport, energy and many more, IoT challenges include compatibility and interoperability with other technologies; licensing of standard essential patents (SEPs) related to cellular communication standards and other standards related to IoT; complexities surrounding analytics and security; threat to privacy and much more.
Pearl Cohen’s IoT team enjoys a strong track record in helping IoT companies to address and overcome these challenges and maximize the potential that lies before them. From wearable devices to smart home solutions, cloud-based data storage and chip manufacturers, we bring a deep appreciation of the commercial, security, data privacy and regulatory concerns facing companies, and offer the much-needed specific expertise in IP and patents, licensing, privacy, and antitrust to help companies address these challenges successfully.
