Sprint Nextel and Vonage have settled their ongoing patent dispute and entered into a licensing arrangement under Sprint's voice-over-packet (VOP) patent portfolio.

On Sept. 25, a jury in the U.S. District Court in Kansas City found that Vonage had infringed six Sprint patents. The settlement agreement resolves all claims related to this dispute.

In addition, Sprint will license Vonage its VOP portfolio, which comprises more than 100 patents covering different methods, components and systems that connect telephone calls between a regular telephone network and a packet-switched network such as the Internet, Sprint said.
