SARASOTA, Fla., June 15, 2017 — xG Technology, Inc. (“xG” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: XGTI, XGTIW), a leading provider of wireless video solutions to broadcast, law enforcement and defense markets, and private mobile broadband networks for critical communications, announced today that it has been awarded a new patent covering an innovative method for enhancing the resilience of communications systems in the face of harmful interference. The patent “Interference–Tolerant Multi-Band Synchronizer” describes an approach that enables a wireless network to maintain robust performance despite adverse operating conditions.
George Schmitt, CEO and Chairman of the Board of xG Technology, said, “With this latest innovation, xG has now patented a full suite of interference mitigation techniques that make the xMax system unique in maintaining network performance in unfavorable communication environments. Interference mitigation is a key technological focus area for xG’s participation in funded R&D initiatives, and is a key driver in our engagements with national defense, scientific research, and other federal organizations.”
xG’s Federal Sector Group (“xG Federal”) focuses on delivering next-generation spectrum sharing solutions by leveraging xG’s extensive portfolio of patented RF communications technologies.
xMax provides reliable and resilient mission-assured C2 (command and control) while operating in uncoordinated, congested, and contested RF environments, particularly when subjected to direct, intense, and varied forms of electronic attack. The field-proven technology can identify unused spectrum and quickly tune to those frequencies. It instantly finds other spectrum if interference is detected, while maintaining uninterrupted connectivity for network users.
xMax has the flexibility to serve as either a fixed, mobile, portable, or aerial wireless infrastructure, making it ideal for a wide range of deployment scenarios. These include disaster response, public safety, and defense applications, where communications must often be established quickly, in fluid scenarios, and other challenging conditions.
