SARASOTA, FL--(Marketwire - Aug 15, 2012) - The wireless communication industry has found itself increasingly transfixed on a single, looming problem -- namely, the pending shortfall of spectrum space, which could potentially prove disastrous for the entire industry. According to a recent government report, however, the concerns over a spectrum shortage are grossly overstated. In fact, the new report, which has been making the rounds in Washington, goes as far as to call the claims of a spectrum shortage "an illusion." This new report has won the attention of wireless communication innovators xG Technology; the company has issued a new statement to the press, offering its agreement with the report and noting that sharing spectrum space is not only possible, but even economical.
The report in question comes from the President's Council of advisors on Science and Technology, or PCAST. The group recently filed a 192-page report, proposing that President Obama issue "an executive order to convert 1,000 MHz of spectrum for shared use under a three-tiered structure." Additionally, the PCAST report recommends "a norm for spectrum use based on sharing versus exclusivity."
XG Technology is a leading wireless communication company. The company has issued a new statement to the press, affirming the PCAST report and noting how innovative wireless technology -- including the company's own xMax product -- can go a long way toward rendering the sharing of spectrum space a non-issue.
"XG Technology supports the findings of the PCAST report, namely that sharing spectrum is both more economical and expeditious that reserving spectrum for exclusive use," says the company's Rick Rotondo. He goes on to note how the xMax technology offers a solution to the problems perceived by the wireless industry.
"Our xMax cognitive radio solution will enable federal, regional and local agencies to share spectrum, without impacting quality of service or reliability with other users, such as public wireless operators and private enterprises who are running out of spectrum capacity," explains Rotondo in the xG Technology press statement.
As companies like xG Technology continue to weigh in on the spectrum debate, President Obama's science and technology advisors have been sharing the findings of their report with lawmakers and members of the public alike. The findings of the report, titled "Realizing the Full Potential of Government-Held Spectrum to Spur Economic Growth," has been the subject of discussion on C-SPAN and in various other technological and public policy circles.
XG Technology is one of the world's premier developers of innovative wireless communication technologies. The company's patented intellectual property portfolio includes a wide array of applications, including smart wireless networks that can help address the pending global spectrum shortage. xG Technology is the firm behind the xMax, the first carrier-class cognitive (i.e. smart) radio network.
