Motorola Solutions and Huawei said Wednesday that they have settled all litigation between the two companies. As a result, Motorola Solutions will transfer its commercial agreements with Nokia Siemens Networks.
In January, Huawei sued Motorola Solutions over the sale of its wireless unit to Nokia Siemens. Huawei, a longtime partner of Motorola, said the sale was an illegal transfer of its intellectual property. The Nokia Siemens deal was key to Motorola's breakup into two companies---Motorola Solutions and Motorola Mobility.
For its part, Motorola Mobility sued Huawei and alleged that the company swiped trade secrets.
In a statement, the companies said all litigation between the two parties will be withdrawn. Motorola Solutions will pay an undisclosed fee to Huawei to transfer commercial deals to Nokia Siemens.
The Huawei-Motorola partnership dates back to 2000. Since then Motorola bought $880 million in technology from Huawei for core and radio access networks.
Motorola Solutions CEO Greg Brown said:
After reviewing the facts, we decided to resolve these matters and return to our traditional relationship of confidence and trust. I am pleased that we can again focus on having a cooperative and productive relationship.
Huawei's Guo Ping, executive vice president, said the company acted "above the board at all times" and didn't use Motorola trade secrets.
