xG Technology (News - Alert) Inc., the developer of a portfolio of wireless communications technologies, recently received a $10-million order for its xMax mobile broadband solution from TelAtlantic Wireless Services, LLC (TWS), an Alexandria, Virginia-based company whose management is affiliated with multiple rural local exchange carriers in the Appalachian Region and Mid-America.
The order covers xMax cognitive radio networking equipment that includes xMax wireless access points, xMod personal hotspots (capable of supporting existing smartphones, tablets and laptops) and xMSC mobile switching centers purchased over a period of three years, and across three separate market areas.
xMax is a fixed and mobile wireless broadband system that includes a complete product line of high-performance access points, fixed and mobile personal Wi-Fi hotspots, mobile switching centers (MSC (News - Alert)) as well as network management and deployment tools.
xG's unique and patented protocol outperforms Wi-Fi, WiMax and traditional cellular technologies like LTE (News - Alert) in shared and interference prone radio bands. The xMax over the air waveform has been specifically designed for use in a deterministic (i.e. fixed low latency) cognitive radio network.
This waveform, in conjunction with its purpose built Media Access Control (MAC) layer, offers capabilities and performance not found in other wireless solutions.
"In the current uncertain regulatory environment, there is a need to evolve as a provider of telecommunications service. To achieve this, our goal is to introduce new regulated and non-regulated products and services in rural communities," said Jim Crabtree, Vice Chairman of TWS. "We are proud to play a key role in incorporating game-changing technologies such as xG's xMax mobile broadband solution that helps us offer state of the art services to rural America."
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.
George Schmitt, xG Director and CEO at MB Technology Holdings, the parent company of xG, said, "We are very honored to receive this order from TWS. Rural broadband is a growing market for xG, and this order supports our mission of delivering high-performance, cost-effective xMax wireless networks to the thousands of rural and independent service providers seeking an effective broadband solution."
