Title: Cisco's Statement of IPR Related to RFC 4656
Date: July 20, 2011
Submitter: Rachel Albright

CCisco is the owner of US Patent Nos. 6,662,223, 6,868,094, 7,088,706, 7,092,410, and 7,792,083 
relating to the subject matter of Request for Comments (RFC) 4656 "A One-way Active Measurement 
Protocol (OWAMP)".

If technology in this document is included in a standard adopted by IETF and any claims of any 
Cisco 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, Cisco will not assert any patents owned or controlled by Cisco against 
any party for making, using, selling, importing or offering for sale a product that implements the 
standard, provided, however that Cisco 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 Cisco or any of Cisco's affiliates or successors in title or against 
any products of Cisco or any products of any of Cisco's affiliates either alone or in combination 
with other products; and Cisco 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.
