Reports in the US press said today that networking company Lucent has decided to license three of its K56Flex patents.
That followed a meeting of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) earlier this week, which attempted to thrash out a standard to resolve the 56K modem wars.
But Lucent may not have an entirely philanthropic attitude by so doing. 3Com said last week that it would also license its X2 patents and modem companies do not want to spoil their own sales by presenting a conflicting picture to the industry and to end users.
