Infinera is the owner of US Patent Application No. 13/169,516 (and any continuations, divisionals, and foreign counterparts thereof) relating to the subject matter of "Method And Apparatus For Transporting Packets With Specific Traffic Flows Having Strict Packet Ordering Requirements Over A Network Using Multipath Techniques."

If technology in this document is included in a standard adopted by IETF and any claims of any Infinera patents are necessary for practicing the standard, any party will have the right to use any such patent claims under reasonable, non-discriminatory terms, with reciprocity, to implement and fully comply with the standard.

The reasonable non-discriminatory terms are:

If this standard is adopted, Infinera will not assert any patents owned or controlled by Infinera against any party for making, using, selling, importing or offering for sale a product that implements the standard, provided, however that Infinera retains the right to assert its patents (including the right to claim past royalties) against any party that asserts a patent it owns or controls (either directly or indirectly) against Infinera or any of Infinera's affiliates or successors in title or against any products of Infinera or any products of any of Infinera's affiliates either alone or in combination with other products; and Infinera retains the right to assert its patents against any product or portion thereof that is not necessary for compliance with the standard.

Royalty-bearing licenses will be available to anyone who prefers that option.
