MRV Communications Inc. can continue to sell its cross-connect technology after a lawsuit claiming patent infringement was settled. Apcon Inc. filed suit in the U.S. District Court of the Central District of California in January claiming Chatsworth-based MRV infringed upon its methods for switching signals between computers and computer peripherals. By settling the lawsuit, Apcon said the present product offerings from MRV do not infringe the switching signal patent nor any other patents presently owned by Apcon. Customers of MRV may continue to purchase MRV products without fear of reprisal from Apcon.
