XGTechnology has recently won two new patents on Self-Organizing Networks (SON). The company was granted these new patents for decreasing the cost related to the deployment and operation of wireless networks used in a variety of applications, including commercial cellular and rural broadband systems.
In addition, the patent was given for using real-time cognitive sensing technology that increases the performance of wireless networks based on spectrum databases, such as those currently used with TV white spaces.
"As wireless networks proliferate, get more complex and face diminishing spectrum resources, cognitive radio technology will play a larger role in the industry's next-generation mobile broadband infrastructure," said Fanny Mlinarsky, President and Founder of octoScope (News - Alert). "The challenge of managing channels and dynamically shifting capacity among cell sites in real-time will require wireless systems to 'self-engineer' and 'self-optimize' as described in these patents. Also, because the FCC (News - Alert) and other regulatory bodies around the world have indicated that spectrum databases are the preferred mechanism for controlling shared frequency allocations, xG has secured significant and potentially highly valuable IP in these granted patents."
These new inventions help in keeping the network infrastructure (base stations) fully mobile, and this is best suited for those situations encountered by public safety, homeland security, and military entities during disaster response and recovery operations like those faced in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
"The real-time sensing technology embodied in our xMax cognitive radio networks enables xG to deliver innovative technology and capabilities such as those included in these two granted patents," said Joe Bobier, CTO of xG. "The inventions covered in these patents will enable xG to offer its customers self-organizing and self-optimizing wireless broadband solutions.”
These technologies is ideal to improve the throughput and performance of wireless broadband systems deployed in licensed and unlicensed spectrum, including database-controlled frequency bands like TV white spaces or any others that are allocated in the future.
