Ramot, a limited liability company which serves as Israel’s Tel Aviv University’s technology transfer company, filed a lawsuit against California-based Cisco Systems, Inc. on Wednesday, November 5 for allegedly infringing on the patents that the company already has. The patent inventors and plaintiffs listed as Yossef Ehrlichman, Ofer Amrani, and Shlomo Ruschin, were said to be connected with TAU’s School of Electrical Engineering.

Ramot claims to handle a portfolio of over 2,200 patents and patent applications all over the world, and over 350 patents in the United States and over 300 U.S. patent applications.

The patents under contention are:
