Our patent attorneys specialise in all forms of communication technology, from telecoms to the Internet of Things
The communications sector is the epicentre of innovation. As a result, the rate at which new products and technologies are being developed has never been higher.
Two major factors are accelerating this demand.
First, companies need to cement their position in this fast-moving and increasingly competitive market.
Second, they need to continually deliver new, better solutions if they’re to stay ahead of the competition.
AN EYE ON THE FUTURE
As the world becomes ever more digitally focused, we’ll see the launch of even more communications channels, more advanced data platforms, and new ways for people and devices to communicate effectively.
That’s why we promote our patent attorneys as communications specialists. While telecoms still have a huge role to play, the demands of everyday life - and, increasingly, remote working - mean the likes of 5G and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) are taking centre stage. At the same time, platforms that deliver dependable video communications, virtual events and data security are also developing at pace.
Simultaneously, the potential of the Internet of Things (IoT) is giving us a glimpse of the future of communications.
Billions of physical devices around the world are connected to the internet, collecting and sharing data. Once you add sensor technology, they can communicate in real time - no human needed.
However, with so much going on in the communications sector, the increased levels of innovation and competition present a significant risk to those looking to further these technologies.
This is where our specialist electronics, computing, and communications attorneys can help.
