Digitimes today reported that Zyxel Communications has filed a complaint against D-Link and Waveplus Technology for switch-related patent infringements. Chip supplier Waveplus is being blamed as the cause of the dispute.

The dispute is over a < $20 D-Link switch that is sold only in Russia and that Zyxel claims is "very similar" to a Zyxel design.

Zyxel said it has not yet decided the amount of monetary damages it will claim and D-Link said that it is "completely protected from any patent controversy" and that no operations should be affected by the dispute.
