New Delhi: Indian handset maker Micromax is trying to work out a deal with Swedish telecoms equipment maker Ericsson after the latter sued Micromax for infringement of wireless patent rights, as per a newspaper report.

Ericsson's 30,000-plus patent portfolio covers much of the technology that enables both mobile phones and the networks that support them to work.

Rivals hold other so-called essential standard patents and the industry has agreed a system of licensing on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms (FRAND) to ensure no one can block the development of mobile communications.

Micromax said in a statement it was "committed to negotiating a FRAND licence with Ericsson as has Ericsson undertaken to providing a Fair, Reasonable and Non-discriminatory licence to Micromax."
