Spherix (SPEX) commenced litigation against Juniper Networks (JNPR), in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware, alleging that the Sunnyvale, California based company infringes five patents owned by Spherix. The patents asserted in the litigation were developed by Nortel Networks and acquired by Spherix in December 2013. The technology at issue relates to routers and switches sold by Juniper that move data across a network and are five of the same patents previously asserted by Spherix against Cisco. Spherix contends that the scope of Juniper's infringement of the asserted patents has been and continues to be substantial. Juniper is one of the world's largest manufacturers and sellers of routing and switching products for high-performance networks. The complaint alleges that for Juniper's fiscal year ending December 31, 2013, Juniper had revenues of over $2.24B from routers, $638M from switches and more than $790M from services. Similar revenues were reported for Juniper's 2011 and 2012 fiscal years. The complaint goes on to allege that the majority of Juniper's revenue from at least January 1, 2011 until the present is and has been generated by products and services implementing technology that infringes the asserted patents.
