XG Technology XMod Cognitive Radio Networking Equipment Receives FCC Certification









SARASOTA, Fla., Sept. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- xG Technology, Inc. ("xG" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: XGTI, XGTIW; AIM: XGTU.L, XGT.L), a developer of wireless communications and spectrum sharing technologies, is pleased to announce that its xMod mobile hotspot has received U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) certification to allow for nationwide distribution and sale in the U.S.

The xMod is a mobile hotspot device that seamlessly connects WiFi, USB or Ethernet-enabled smartphones, tablets, notebooks and other devices to the Internet as well as voice networks through xG's xMax cognitive radio network. The xMax network is a comprehensive fixed and mobile broadband solution that gives service providers the capacity to share spectrum. xMod has been designed to meet the demands of a wide range of applications including rural broadband, machine to machine (M2M) and enterprise networks.

The FCC requires that all telecom equipment and radio communication equipment meet minimum compliance standards before they can be legally marketed and sold. Production-ready xMod devices were tested and certified under standard Part 15 of FCC rules governing allowed output power, harmonics and occupied bandwidth. They received FCC approval through the agency's Grant of Equipment Authorization procedures that ensure regulatory compliance.

 "Receiving FCC certification for the xMod is significant achievement and final step in the commercial availability of this breakthrough product," said Scott Garlington, Vice President of Engineering for xG Technology. "It provides further validation that our software and hardware are working as designed and in accordance with FCC guidelines for commercially available products. We also believe that this is a very positive indicator for the remaining xMax products currently undergoing FCC testing, and look forward to their upcoming certification as well."

xMax is designed for rapid deployment and low operating costs. It offers a carrier-grade user experience and can serve as a network backbone or a last-mile solution in multiple markets and applications. xMax leverages Software Defined Radio (SDR) technology that enables it to exploit licensed, unlicensed and shared spectrum. The Company's products have been tested and trialed at two U.S. Army bases, a rural telecom provider, and in an urban/suburban mobile data and VoIP network in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
