As part of Initial Determination, Judge McNamara discovered that Motorola Solutions' four patents are legally valid, Hytera has infringed the patent, and Motorola Solutions has proven, through the fulfillment of a number of legal requirements, of a domestic industry or "technical domestic industry "On three of the four patents.

"Judge McNamara's verdict prove our claim legally, respecting the integrity of our intellectual property and rebuking Hytera for his immoral and unlawful conduct for deliberately violating Motorola Solutions' patents," said Mark Hacker, Chief Administrative Officer of Motorola Solutions.

We greatly appreciate the hard work done by Judge McNamara and the ITC staff during this investigation, and we are confident that all ITCs will support this decision and provide a final verdict / verdict consistent with today's findings.
