Limited Evaluation License Agreement
This Chordant Platform Limited Evaluation License Agreement ("Agreement") is entered by and between INTERDIGITAL COMMUNICATIONS, INC., a Delaware corporation having offices at 200 Bellevue Parkway, Suite 300, Wilmington, Delaware 19809 ("InterDigital") and Recipient (hereinafter, "Licensee") as of the date and time Recipient indicates acceptance of the Terms and Conditions of the Chordant Platform (the "Effective Date").
InterDigital has developed a "Chordant Platform" including among other things a M2M Server, M2M Gateway, and certain software known as the InterDigital "M2M Service Capability Layer and API". Licensee is interested in evaluating InterDigital’s M2M Service Capability Layer and API software for potential use in connection with Company’s Products (the "Licensee Products"). Licensee is also interested in interfacing the Licensee Products to the M2M Service Capability Layer and API and operating such Licensee Products on the Chordant Platform.
To enable Licensee to evaluate the M2M Service Capability Layer and API, InterDigital will supply some or all of the following: (i) "Software", consisting of linkable object modules, libraries, executable drivers and demonstration applications, which may include, in InterDigital’s sole discretion, limited sample source code to demonstrate the use of InterDigital libraries provided in binary form (the "InterDigital Source Code"); (ii) "Documentation", consisting of interface definitions, API’s, header files, user manuals and system documentation and; and (iii) "Tools", consisting of test drivers, test scripts, and build software, (collectively, the "Evaluation Materials"). It is assumed that the Licensee will supply any other required software components (e.g. modem drivers) that interface with the Software. If InterDigital, at its sole option, supplies updates or error corrections to Licensee, the updates or error corrections will be considered part of the Evaluation Materials, and therefore subject to the terms of this Agreement. Licensee will have the right to use the Evaluation Materials, subject to the terms of this Agreement.
1. Limited License.

InterDigital will provide Licensee with limited access to InterDigital’s M2M Server solely to enable Licensee to perform the foregoing.
