Small Texas company sues Cisco, others for patent infringement

Last week, Texas-based Crossroads Systems Inc. filed lawsuits against Cisco Systems Inc., NetApp Inc. and Quantum Corp. in federal court.

The company, headquartered in Austin, specializes in data storage technology.

In all three complaints, filed Feb. 18 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas, Crossroads alleges infringement of U.S. Patents 6,425,035 and 7,934,041.

The asserted patents are part of Crossroads’ ‘972 Patent Family.

Since 2001, the company has licensed the patent family to more than 40 companies and received in excess of $60 million in license and settlement revenue.
