Mobility Works,LLC has file briefs that have been cited and covered by Bloomberg Law and other legal news agencies:

Mobility Works briefs was also covered indicating that :

Patent owner Mobility Workx suggested remand as the appropriate remedy in its pending appeal.

“In view of Arthrex, Mobility submits that the PTAB panel’s decision should be vacated and the present case remanded to the PTO for the director to issue a certificate confirming the challenged claims,” it said. It argues the board erred by failing to reach a final determination in its case within the statutory 12- or 18-month period.


A few bullet points from FedcircuitBlog (here) :

1. “Whether the unusual structure for instituting and funding AIA post-grant reviews violates the Due Process Clause in view of Tumey v. Ohio, 273 U.S. 510 (1927), and its progeny, which establish ‘structural bias’ as a violation of due process.”

2. “Whether the Director’s delegation of his responsibility to make final unreviewable institution decisions to the same APJ’s who make the Final Written Decision violates the Administrative Procedures Act and/or the Due Process Clause of the Constitution.”

3. “Whether subjecting the Pre-AIA ’417 Patent to an AIA Proceeding so fundamentally different from the post review proceedings that existed at the time Mobility’s inventors applied for and obtained their patent constitutes an unlawful taking of property.”

4. “Whether the PTAB’s decisions should be vacated and remanded because the PTAB panel that decided the cases was unconstitutional under the Appointments Clause.”

5. “Whether the PTAB’s holding of claims 1, 2, 4, and 5 unpatentable over Liu or Liu and Gwon should be reversed because its finding that Liu or Liu and Gwon teach or suggest a ghost-mobile node ‘triggering signals’ that are ‘required to allocate resources and initiate mobility on behalf of the mobile node’ is not supported by substantial evidence.”

Field RF and Data Playback

Companies as Spirent Communications use tools to collect RF data and play it back for testing again. Companies are looking for ways to capture “Drive Test” RF data as RSSI and use fading models to replay certain Physical level conditions that trigger what modulation mode the phone will be used. At the same time, the RF will trigger switching on bandwidth and bit rates, power transmission, and battery usage.

One interesting tools is called Live2Lab, a tool that handles capture of data and playback in the SR5500 Wireless Channel Emulator, and other tools that combined can provide a full test for switched calls, VoLTE calls, applications, and data.

Companies like ROHDE & SCHWARZ, AeroFlex, and others provide similar environments for testing.

In summary, RF data is captured from the field (via “Drive Test Tool”) and then converted or imported to a format that can be played back to the handset or handsets, once the data from 1-10 sectors is known, the base station signaling can be emulated in a form that the handsets perceives the drive test.
