XG TECHNOLOGY, INC. RECEIVES ORDER FOR BROADBAND-ENHANCED xMAX PILOT NETWORK FROM
CANADIAN TELECOMMUNICATIONS PROVIDER LIKETONE GROUP, INC.
xMax Cognitive Radio System To Help LikeTone Leverage License-Free Frequencies for the Delivery of
Mobile Voice, Video and Data For Consumer Application
xG Technology, Inc. (LSE-AIM: XGT, "xG" or the "Company"), the developer of a broad portfolio of wireless communications technology, including cognitive radio networks, is pleased to announce that it has received a $50,000 sales order from LikeTone Group, Inc. ("LikeTone"), a Toronto, Ontario (Canada)- based VoIP and prepaid cellular carrier. The order is for xMax networking equipment, including xMax wireless access points, end-user devices and a mobile switching center. This will enable LikeTone to develop deployment and business models that leverage xMax's unique capabilities to deliver new mobile broadband and VoIP services to their customers - without the need to purchase expensive wireless spectrum licenses.
After test driving the xMax network capabilities in Florida, LikeTone determined that it was in its strategic interest to be one of the first commercial customers to acquire xMax equipment. LikeTone founder and head of R&D, Balrajh Pera, stated, "As a competitive provider, we are very excited to employ xMax cognitive radio as a means of reaching our customers wirelessly without the high cost of licensed spectrum."
LikeTone joins a growing number of forward-looking commercial communications providers that have expressed interest in xMax via Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) documents or purchase orders.
Under the terms of the order, xG Technology will be paid upon delivery of its broadband-enhanced xMax equipment to LikeTone, which will take place in 2012.
xMax has been deployed for testing by the US Army at Fort Bliss and White Sands Missile Range since February 2011 and is being deployed at additional sites supporting advanced communications demonstration events with the US Air Force and Army in July 2011 and beyond.
