Huawei secures license deal with Volkswagen supplier

Huawei has reached a license agreement with a supplier of Volkswagen Group, which includes a license under Huawei’s 4G standard essential patents (SEPs).

The agreement covers Volkswagen vehicles equipped with wireless connectivity and marks Huawei’s largest licensing deal in the automotive industry. 

“As an innovative company, we own a leading patent portfolio for wireless technologies, which creates great value for the automotive industry,” said Song Liuping, chief legal officer of Huawei.

“We believe this license will benefit worldwide consumers with our advanced technology,” said Song. 

Huawei expects more than 30 million vehicles to be licensed under its patents based on existing license agreements. 

Over the past 20 years, Huawei has entered into more than 100 patent license agreements with major global companies across Europe, the United States, Japan, and South Korea. 

Huawei intends to continue bringing digital connectivity to more vehicles globally to establish a fully connected, intelligent world.
