The parties evaluate US Patent Nos. 8,116,284 and 6,591,111 to Motorola Solutions, which relate to Motorola Solutions' Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) and group radio communication system technologies, respectively. PTAB rejected all doubts about the validity of US Patent No. 8,116,284 filed by Hytera. In addition, PTAB maintains the validity of many of the claims of the U.S. Patent No. 6,591,111 to Hytera. Both of these patents target Hytera's i-series products and products in Motorola's patent infringement case.

The features provided by these patents are particularly important in emergency and life-threatening situations, including the following technologies:
