Airespace, Inc. has advised the IETF that it holds three currently
pending U.S. patent applications (one entitled "Light-Weight Access
Point Protocol" and two entitled "Method and System for Hierarchical
Processing of Protocol Information in a Wireless LAN") that Airespace
believes include at least one patent claim essential to implement the
LWAPP protocol as specified in draft-calhoun-seamoby-lwapp-03.txt (the
"Specification").

Airespace hereby covenants that it will not assert any patent
claims contained in any of the above-identified pending patent
applications (if and when issued as a Patent) against any party that
makes, uses, sells, imports, or offers for sale, an implementation of
the LWAPP protocol as specified in the Specification, assuming it is
adopted.

This covenant extends only to those patent claims contained in one
of the above-identified patent applications that are necessary to
implement the identified LWAPP protocol, and shall not extend to any
other intellectual property rights of Airespace. The covenant applies
only to assertion of those specified patent claims against a party based
on that party's implementation of the LWAPP protocol, and shall not
limit the rights of Airespace to assert any patent claims against
infringing activities that are not necessary to implement the LWAPP
protocol. The covenant shall not apply to (and Airspace shall be free
to assert the above identified claims against) any party that asserts a
patent it owns or controls against Airespace, either directly or
indirectly, based on implementation or operation of a system utilizing
the LWAPP protocol.
