ZTE files suit against Huawei over TD-LTE patents

ZTE has brought a patent lawsuit against its Chinese rival Huawei in Shenzen, where both companies are based, calling for the vendor to stop manufacturing and using its TD-LTE equipment and to keep Huawei from executing large-scale TD-LTE technology trials.

Citing a source within ZTE's securities department, Marbridge Consulting said the court has accepted the suit and has started legal proceedings. Cellular-News confirmed the report with Huawei.

Industry rumor had previously alleged that China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) had tried to step in and bring a resolution to the dispute.

Huawei kicked off the disputes between the companies by filing patent-infringement lawsuits in courts in France, Germany and Hungary. The patents relate to data card and LTE technologies, and Huawei claims that ZTE had illegally used Huawei's trademark on some of ZTE's data cards. Huawei was subsequently granted an injunction against ZTE.
