V. Licensing Declaration

The Patent Holder states that its position with respect to licensing any patent claims contained in the patent(s) or patent application(s) disclosed above that would necessarily be infringed by implementation of the technology required by the relevant IETF specification ("Necessary Patent Claims"), for the purpose of implementing such specification, is as follows(select one licensing declaration option only):

Licensing
See Text Below for Licensing Declaration
Licensing information, comments, notes, or URL for further information

This is to advise the IETF, in accordance with the IETF RFCs 3979 and 4879 that Nokia Solutions and Networks believes the Nokia patent application “Method and apparatus for indicating a type of a network interface” (US 2014/0372546) (the “Disclosed Patents”), may be required to implement the following IETF contribution RFC 7549 “3GPP SIP URI Inter-Operator Traffic Leg Parameter” (the “Contribution”).

To the extent that the Contribution is incorporated in an IETF RFC, Nokia Solutions and Networks informs that Nokia Solutions and Networks and its Affiliates will provide access to a license on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory (“FRAND”) terms and conditions, subject to reciprocity, to an unrestricted number of applicants desiring to implement such IETF RFC for those claims of the Disclosed Patents only that would, in the absence of a license, be necessarily infringed by the making, using, selling, importing, or otherwise disposing of a technology implementing such IETF RFC. In this context, “necessarily infringed” means that infringement of such claims is technically necessary to implement such IETF RFC.

“Affiliate” of Nokia Solutions and Networks means any legal entity that is for the time being directly or indirectly controlled by Nokia Solutions and Networks. Control in this context, exists where one entity owns more than fifty percent (50%) of the voting stock or equity in another entity, or regardless of stock or equity ownership, is otherwise able to direct its affairs or to appoint a majority of the members of the board of directors or an equivalent body to determine the course of action of the entity by virtue of its voting or other rights. Such entities shall only be deemed to be Affiliates, hereunder for as long as such control exists.

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.
