Subject: Proposed OSFP MSA Rev 4.1 TE Connectivity IP Disclosure

Hello OSFP MSA,

As follow-up to TE Connectivity's previous declaration, in relation to the most recent OSFP proposed specification rev 4.1, TE believes that the patent family including US patent 9389368, the patent family including US patent 9509102, the patent family including US patent 9653829, the patent family including US patent 6749448, and the patent family including US patent 6816376 could include essential claims for this OSFP published specification. Further, TE has a patent family having US patent 7070446 including claims which could be applicable (although not essential) to one possible construction of the 2×1 cage/connector.

Thank you,

Nathan
