Apple's iPhone

Cisco Systems and Apple Inc. announced Wednesday that they have resolved their dispute involving the iPhone trademark.

Under the agreement, both companies are free to use the iPhone trademark on their products throughout the world. In a joint statement, both companies acknowledge the trademark ownership rights that have been granted, and each side will dismiss any pending actions regarding the trademark. The two companies will also "explore opportunities for interoperability" in security, and consumer and enterprise communications.

Last month, Cisco filed an infringement lawsuit against Apple, seeking injunction on the use of its iPhone trademark, which Cisco said it has obtained in 2000.
