XG Technology, Inc. Receives $1,030,750 Purchase Order For XMax Broadband Network Equipment From Assist Wireless

SARASOTA, Fla., Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- xG® Technology, Inc. ("xG" or the "Company") (AIM: XGTU.L, XGT.L), the developer of a portfolio of wireless communications technologies, including cognitive radio networks, is pleased to announce that it has received a new purchase order for $1,030,750 from Assist Wireless, LLC ("Assist Wireless"), a Fort Worth, TX-based Eligible Telecommunications Carrier (ETC) to deploy xMax wireless voice and broadband services in Tahlequah, Oklahoma and surrounding Cherokee county.

Assist Wireless currently operates in Arkansas, Maryland and Oklahoma with planned expansion in California, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Pennsylvania and Texas. They offer subsidized wireless service for low-income subscribers through Lifeline, a federally mandated low-income assistance program.

"We view xMax cognitive radio technology as a new way to grow our existing business, diversifying into new areas such as municipal mobile broadband, schools, hospitals and first responder applications," said Byron Young, CEO of Assist Wireless. "The xMax system offers us a low cost, carrier-grade solution for deploying new internet-based services that our customers want, without requiring access to cost-prohibitive licensed spectrum."

This purchase order brings the total announced backlog of orders and reseller agreements for xMax equipment and services to over $30.6 million, and highlights the growing market traction that xG's technology is experiencing across a wide range of industries and applications including rural telecom, public safety, education, utilities, local government, gaming and casinos, hospitality, transportation and logistics, manufacturing, and healthcare.

"Assist Wireless has significant telecom operating experience, proven network deployment knowhow, maintenance expertise, as well an excellent reputation for customer service," said Chris Whiteley, Vice President of Business Development for xG Technology. "We are pleased to see xMax being adopted by a growing number of CLECs and independent telco operators who do not own licensed spectrum, but understand the importance of offering wireless Internet-based services to their customers."

Under the terms of the order, xG will be paid upon the delivery of FCC certified xMax equipment to Assist Wireless, which is expected to commence in the second quarter of 2013.
