Securus Successfully Defends United States Patent Before Patent Trial and Appeal Board

United States Patent and Trademark Office Rules In Favor of Securus Technologies and Retains Significant Elements of Onsite, On-Demand Video Communications

DALLAS, Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Securus Technologies, a leading provider of civil and criminal justice technology solutions for public safety, investigation, corrections and monitoring, announced today that it has received a significant win from the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) related to a patent invalidation filing by Global Tel*Link (GTL). Despite GTL's contentions that this patent should be totally invalidated, the court sided with Securus on many significant elements of the Video Patent.

Securus Technologies Inc.

Summary of Video Patent:

"We were pleased that the Patent Trial and Appeal Board viewed these key elements/claims as being valid and they ruled in Securus' favor," said Richard A. Smith, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Securus Technologies.

"Ultimately, we enjoy significant advantages over GTL in Issued Patents, Pending Patents, In-Force Patents, and our Patent Win-Loss Record – and we have license agreements with most significant carriers in our sector including two (2) previous license agreements that GTL had with Securus over a ten (10) year period," said Smith. "This advantage is material and will last for the foreseeable future given our acquisitions and advanced development efforts. The "Patent Related Metrics" that I referred to are provided below in this Press Release."

"GTL has filed twenty three (23) patent invalidations against Securus and has only been successful on invalidating four (4) patents to date. My estimate is that they have spent over $20 million in that effort – so not a very good return on that money for them," said Smith. "At that rate, they will have to spend in excess of $200 million attempting to invalidate all of our patents – and that effort clearly will not be successful – but I encourage them to try. A more prudent approach would be to have a license agreement with Securus – from my perspective that is the best business case for them with the highest NPV (Net Present Value). I expect that this IPR invalidation process will continue for a long time – 5 to 10 years, and I am prepared to stick with it and expect to eventually prevail."

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
