The All New Semantic Essentiality Score

Your first step to determining patent essentiality

The IPlytics Semantic Essentiality Score (SES) brings a redefined approach to determining the essentiality of declared patents which can save you up to $150,000 for every 100 patents that you get evaluated with the help of subject-matter experts and outside counsel.

What is the IPlytics Semantic Essentiality Score?

The IPlytics Semantic Essentiality Score guides you on how likely essential a patent is to the standard it is declared for. Using a semantic mapping of independent patent claims to standard sections, an essentiality score is calculated ranging from 1-100 with 100 being the most likely essential.

Why should you care?

For Portfolio Management:


  • Use IPlytics SES to know what is more or less essential in your portfolio and your competitor’s
  • Keep track of your highest scoring granted patents so you never forget to renew them
  • Understand the likelihood of essentiality of declared patent applications early in the process

For Licensing and Business Development:


  • Using IPlytics SES, you can finally tackle the ETSI over-declarations
  • Review any declared patent portfolio for essentiality in seconds
  • Use IPlytics SES as a foundation for better calculation of FRAND rates for your licensing negotiations
