Rapid-Deploy Wide-Area Mobile Data Solution Delivers Uninterrupted
Communications During Emergencies and Disasters
Sarasota, Florida—September 2, 2015—xG Technology, Inc. (“xG” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: XGTI, XGTIW), a developer of wireless communications and spectrum sharing technologies, announced today the introduction of the xMax NOW transportable broadband wireless system. xMax NOW, which is available for customer shipments today, has everything needed to establish instant, wide-area mobile communications capabilities in a roll-out format.
xG specifically designed xMax NOW to meet the rapid-deploy requirements of emergency response, homeland security, law enforcement, military and private entities. The system can extend the range of data communications up to seven miles (160 square miles of coverage) around a mobile command center to enable real-time situational awareness.
xMax NOW is a fully self-contained mobile voice and data communications system that can be easily transported by vehicles of any size. The system, which has been pre-packaged for easy setup and installation, allows communications links to be established within 30 minutes. Components of the system include a self-configuring wireless broadband data center unit, a fast and flexible mast structure, all necessary antennas, cabling, switches, and quick-install hardware and accessories. All items are enclosed in rugged, easily transportable packaging for deployment on demand. Satellite backhaul capability pre-configured in a flyaway kit can also be included.
Tim Moynihan, xG Technology’s Vice President of Sales, said, “The xMax NOW solution is a fully-integrated, highly transportable unit that is ideal for establishing and maintaining communications quickly and easily. Today’s mission-critical wireless users need reliable, real-time voice, data and video access. xMax offers a unique combination of unmatched reliability, exceptional interoperability, and rock-solid security in a turnkey broadband system. When delivered in the xMax NOW package, it provides the ultimate in deployment flexibility and immediate connectivity.”
xMax NOW incorporates xG Technology’s xMax secure, high-speed private wireless network infrastructure. Unlike public cellular systems, which are susceptible to system overload or damage during disasters, emergency situations and large events, xMax is a private, public-safety grade network which is always available. xMax has been engineered to deliver exceptional resiliency and redundancy in unpredictable environments and fluid and chaotic situations. This is a critical benefit for first responders and other mission-essential users who require wireless access that is protected from contention with public users, as well as other possible interference sources.
xMax also incorporates interoperability support that allows seamless communications among land mobile radios, cell phones, military and public safety P25 networks.
