Given the language used, the "such that" clause is reasonably interpreted to identify the resulting condition (enabling the mobile units/device to perform an intended function of combining with multicast content) that occurs when the multicast data is transmitted, as positively recited in claims 44 and 69.  Thus, the "such that" clause at issue is akin to a "whereby" clause that merely states the result of transmitting the multicast data.  Our reviewing court has conluded that "[a] 'whereby' clause that merely states the result of the limitations in the claim adds nothing to the patentability or substance of the claim." Texas Instruments, Inc. v. Int'l Trade Comm'n, 988 F.2d 1165, 1172 (Fed. Cir. 1993) (citation ommitted).  Further, our reviewing court guides: "[a]n intended use or purpose usually will not limit the scope of the claim because such statements usually do no more than define a context in which the invention operates." Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. v. Schering-Plough Corp., 320 F.3d 1339, 1345 (Fed. Cir. 2003).  Thus, giving the claims their broadest reasonable interpretation, we find the claims merely require "transmitting" from a satellite multicast data to mobile units/device.
