xG Technology (News - Alert), Inc., a developer of wireless communications technologies, recently announced that it has received an estimated $4.11 million in purchase orders from various rural telecommunications providers.
According to the officials from xG, the company has received orders for xMax cognitive radio networking equipment from Electra Telephone Company and Tatum Telephone Company (both based in Texas); Choctaw Telephone Company and MoKanDial Telephone Company (both based in Kansas); Haxtun Telephone Company (based in Colorado); and Walnut Hill Telephone Company (based in Arkansas) (together, the "Providers").
xMax is an end-to-end Internet Protocol (IP) network solution that incorporates xG’s patented cognitive radio technologies to deliver the first fully mobile VoIP and broadband network that also supports any smartphone, laptop, tablet and other commercial Wi-Fi or IP-enabled devices via its xMod personal hotspot - while offering an excellent quality of service (QoS) and fixed, low latency.
