This purchase order brings the total announced backlog of orders and reseller agreements for xMax equipment and services to over $29.6 million. This order continues to demonstrate the growing appeal of xMax into a wide range of vertical and geographic markets including public safety, gaming and casinos, government, education and rural telephone companies.
The xMax cognitive radio solution provides a key advantage to TelAtlantic Wireless Services and other service providers operating in the rural telecom market. These providers have traditionally had limited options for deploying wireless services due to a lack of appropriate or sufficient licensed spectrum assets. xMax has the ability to operate in unlicensed spectrum, which enables the delivery of reliable wireless voice and broadband services without the need for costly licensed frequencies.
"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."
George Schmitt, xG Director and CEO of 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.”
