Samsung has also signed up to the Avanci Aftermarket and Broadcast pool, with 5G details still to come

Samsung has joined Avanci’s 4G automotive patent pool as a licensor, the parties announced today, April 18.

The South Korea-based electronics company will also license its patents via Avanci’s new Broadcast pool and Aftermarket, an Avanci statement said.

Avanci Broadcast, announced last month, was created to license patents essential to the ATSC 3.0 television standard.

Aftermarket, launched in February, covers vehicle parts using 2G, 3G, and 4G cellular technologies.

Samsung is the 56th standard-essential patent owner to sign up as a licensor to Avanci’s automotive pools.

“This announcement reinforces the broad industry enthusiasm for the Avanci model and adds value for existing and future licensees at no additional cost to them,” said Kasim Alfalahi, Avanci CEO.

Avanci has also confirmed it will launch a 5G automotive pool but has not yet confirmed any licensors or pricing details.

Last September, Avanci raised the price of a 4G licence for its new members from $15 per vehicle to $20.

Automakers that signed up before September 1 will continue to pay $15 for each connected vehicle sold for the duration of their licence.
