xMax is a fixed and mobile wireless broadband system that includes a complete product line of high-performance access points, fixed and mobile personal WiFi hotspots, mobile switching centers (MSC) as well as network management and deployment tools. xG’s unique and patented protocol outperforms WiFi, WiMax and traditional cellular technologies like LTE 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.
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 WiFi or IP-enabled devices via its xMod personal hotspot – while offering an excellent quality of service (QoS) and fixed, low latency.
xG’s approach has been to develop a network that uses available free spectrum instead of costly licensed spectrum and an all-IP architecture that is less expensive to deploy and operate. The company’s xMax system addresses the numerous technical hurdles involved with mobile VoIP and data in today’s crowded airwaves. The result is an extremely efficient network solution that delivers high quality fixed and mobile wireless Internet services at very low cost.
Every aspect of the technology is designed for the highest possible efficiency and QoS. xMax is designed to prioritize voice calls by delivering dedicated time-slots, as well as a voice calling app for android phones and tablets. This approach guarantees a low and fixed latency for every call, which essential for reliable voice calls on heavily loaded wireless broadband systems. The xMax system ability to provide fixed low latency connectivity for real-time communications is in contrast to technologies like Wi-Fi and WiMAX, both of which are contention-based “best effort” delivery systems that cannot provide scalable voice services without significantly reducing their data carrying capacity. xG’s proprietary air interface addresses these limitations, while supporting full sensing-based cognitive network operation.
xMax carrier class cognitive radio networking solutions are made up of the following key products:
