xG Delivers Data to Commercial Smartphones via Its xMax Cognitive Radio Solution

By Telecom
Lead Team: 
xG Technology, a developer of wireless communications
technologies, has demonstrated the over the air transmission and receipt of
data by off-the-shelf smartphones using xMax technology at its facility in


This new
capability adds to xMax’s voice and short messaging features and will enable xG
to offer a single fully integrated mobile solution capable of delivering
everything over Internet Protocol (EoIP) to any IP enabled end user device.


“We are
particularly proud of all the efforts by our engineers over the past months to
bring this game-changing technology to fruition. Our next challenge will be to make
a system of affordable devices for volume production,” said John Coleman,
CEO, xG Technology.


The company
said that its engineering team will focus on performance enhancement, such as
xG’s interference mitigation techniques, and cost reduction efforts that will
replace the high cost base station with a low cost access point, with the aim
of making the xMax system commercially available later this year.


of the different elements of the network and linking to normal off-the-shelf
smartphones was a critical step in implementing xMax’s over the air interface
and validates the overall system design, hardware implementation and software
development of the new product set,” said Scott Garlington, V P of
engineering at xG Technology.


The company
added that customer demonstrations for xMax 2.0 cognitive radio systems are
expected to take place in the second and third quarters of 2012 and commercial
availability of xMax 2.5 is expected by the end of 2012.
