The patents also cover the use of real-time cognitive sensing technology to enhance the performance of wireless networks that must rely on spectrum databases, such as those currently used with TV white spaces. Further, these inventions enable network infrastructure (base stations) to be fully mobile, which is ideal 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.
These patents continue xG’s record of developing intelligent technology that increases the efficiency and performance of wireless networks. The explosion in mobile broadband data requires networks that can deliver network capacity, coverage and quality—while minimizing costs. Self-Organizing Networks can enhance the total performance of networks by lowering installation and management costs, while eliminating the need for manual configuration of frequency planning via built-in automatic configuration and optimization algorithms.
These newly granted patents underscore the Company’s increasingly valuable Intellectual Property (IP) portfolio as well as its growing leadership in the rapidly expanding cognitive radio field. A recent New York Times article featured xG as a company “developing technology that could change the whole spectrum game by using radio frequencies more efficiently”.
As of the date of this release, xG’s United States patent portfolio includes 40 patents granted, with an additional 24 applications patent pending. The Company’s foreign patent portfolio totals 145 patent matters (issued and pending).
