ADTRAN states that its position with respect to licensing of ADTRAN’s intellectual property disclosed in the reference document for “Model-Based Estimation of Streaming Performance” held by ADTRAN that would necessarily be infringed by implementation of the technology required by the relevant IETF specification ("Necessary IP Claims") is that for the purpose of implementing such specification ADTRAN will offer a reasonable and non-discriminatory license to all implementers with a possible royalty fee or other customary industry licensing method for compensating ADTRAN.

Subject to a license agreement being made before use of our Essential Intellectual Property (as hereinafter defined) and subject to a reciprocal license under similar conditions being available to ADTRAN and its Subsidiaries (as defined below) under Essential Intellectual Property of the applicant, ADTRAN hereby declares:

- ADTRAN believes that ADTRAN’s intellectual property disclosed in the reference document for “Model-Based Estimation of Streaming Performance” may be essential to the invention and,
- if such invention is technically unavoidable to implement such IETF Standard (“Essential Intellectual Property”),

ADTRAN is prepared to grant licenses under such Essential Intellectual Property of ADTRAN on non-discriminatory, reasonable terms and conditions for implementation of such IETF Standard in any country where such IETF Standard is to be applied and a pertinent Essential Intellectual Property of ADTRAN or any of its Subsidiaries does exist.

Definition of Subsidiaries: “Subsidiaries” of ADTRAN shall mean all companies controlled by ADTRAN. “Controlled by” within the meaning of this declaration means to have directly or indirectly, a controlling interest in such company, at any time after this declaration has been given and as long as such an interest exists, by owning a majority of the voting stock or equivalent voting rights.

Note: The individual submitting this template represents and warrants that he or she is authorized by the Patent Holder to agree to the above-selected licensing declaration.
