By leveraging three decades of engineering and managerial experience at companies such as Cisco, Amber Networks, Nokia, and Unisys, TP Lab's founder and primary inventor Chi Fai Ho, Ph.D. naturally became an expert in developing forward-looking and bottom-line driven networking, mobile, and consumer device solutions. To date, Dr. Ho is an inventor of over 100 issued US patents, 56 of which have been developed at his Palo Alto based invention development firm, TP Lab.

With over 15 years left until expiration, the TP Lab patents available for acquisition represent technically feasible and commercially viable assets. Vice President of Adapt IP Ventures, Brian Bochicco, states, "As far as the '063 and '767 patents, the more consumer electronics devices and appliances become 'connected,' the more network-based management of said consumer electronics devices and appliances becomes attractive to the end users. In respect to the '638 and '802 patents, the emerging popularity of Software-Defined Networking approaches signal the importance of TP Lab's patents within the context of creating 'on demand' virtual networks."
