Aruba Networks and Motorola have settled their long-running patent dispute by signing a cross-licensing agreement, the companies announced on Friday.

In August 2007, two Motorola subsidiaries sued Aruba over alleged patent infringements relating to wireless LAN (WLAN) architecture. Aruba countersued in October of that year.

On Friday, Aruba and Motorola issued a statement in which they said they had "reached an agreement that settles all outstanding intellectual property disputes between the two companies".

"We are pleased to have reached an amicable business resolution outside of the courts," Gene Delaney, Motorola's enterprise mobility chief, said in the statement. "Additionally, we are actively exploring technical and business opportunities of mutual interest associated with the all-wireless enterprise."
