The settlement came just months after China backed down over plans to introduce a wireless LAN A local area network that transmits over the air typically in the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz unlicensed frequency band. It does not require line of sight between sender and receiver.

A spokesman for the Semiconductor Industry Association said the biggest outstanding concern is the counterfeiting industry in China. He said that Beijing has put the right laws in place, "but there's still a large amount going on."
