The "patent summary" isn't the patent, it's a description of what the patent does. Any company is free to make a device that does what is in the patent summary - they just can't use the particular method that the inventor patented to do so.

FRAND only applies to patents that are included in a particular standard adopted by a standard setting organization - I'm not sure whether that applies in this case.
