Certicable, the company behind the TiniFiber® brand, and the leading US manufacturer of lightweight, flexible armored fiber optic cabling technologies, has announced that it has filed a lawsuit for patent infringement against Point 2 Point Communications Corporation, the company behind the NanoFiber brand. The lawsuit was filed in United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
In the lawsuit against Point 2 Point, Certicable alleges infringement of United States Patent No. 10,444,454, which relates to the company’s advanced TiniFiber armored flexible fiber optic cable assembly. Certicable’s intellectual property include technologies for a non-interlocking armor, materials and optical fibers, all of which are covered by the asserted patent.
Commenting on the lawsuit, Steve Shultis, the newly appointed President of TiniFiber, states: “TiniFiber armored cable offers more flexibility and is 65% smaller and 75% lighter than conventional AIA cabling. These benefits derive from an innovative cable assembly technology, the patent for which we believe Point 2 Point Communications has infringed and continues to infringe. We have filed this lawsuit to protect the intellectual property rights that are the basis of the patent covering our unique technology.”
