xG Technology, Inc. has announced that it has been awarded an important cognitive radio patent.
The patent, “Interference Mitigation Method for Single or MIMO Receiver Devices” (U.S.P.T.O.
#13/667,006) covers an innovation that describes a way of providing enhanced protection from interference to devices in shared and crowded spectrum environments. An essential aspect of the innovation is that it can be built into an LTE-compliant system.
With this latest patent award, xG Technology’s intellectual property portfolio now includes 60 U.S. patent matters (50 issued) and 145 international patent matters (65 issued).
“This interference mitigation patent award represents an important addition to a core area of our technology foundation,” saidJohn Coleman, CEO of xG Technology. “As the reuse and sharing of spectrum become increasingly attractive options to alleviate the challenge of crowded frequencies, the risk of damaging interference grows. This interference mitigation innovation reduces that risk, thus enabling more reliable and efficient wireless communications. The ability to also support devices on LTE systems is especially significant, since LTE operators are deploying increasing numbers of small cells (micro, pico and femtocells) which can increase the possibility of interference. xG is committed to continuous innovation and to driving the growth and adoption of our unique, cost effective, and increasingly differentiated xMax solution.”
xMax is a comprehensive fixed and mobile broadband solution that is designed for rapid deployment and low operating costs. It offers a carrier-grade user experience and can serve as a network backbone or last-mile solution for a number of markets and applications. xMax leverages software defined radio (SDR) and cognitive radio access network technology that enable efficient sharing of both licensed and unlicensed spectrum.
This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the Global Software Defined Radios market for the period 2014-2018. To calculate the market size, the report considers the annual revenue generated from sales of SDR solutions including network infrastructure, user devices and terminals, and services to the Defense, Commercial, and Homeland Security sectors.
