Why xG Technologies Up Today - TheStreet

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- xG Technology (XGTI) was up 33.1% to $3.58 this afternoon after announcing that its cognitive radio software is ready for wide release. The wireless communications company had previously released its xMax broadband networking equipment on conditional availability to select consumers.

xG specializes in cognitive or smart radio technology that allows radio transceivers to pick up and use pockets of free spectrum within already purchased spectrum without disrupting their service and conforming to FCC standards. 

"We are excited to release these enhanced capabilities to our customers' networks via over-the-air software updates," said John Coleman, CEO of xG Technology. "This underscores one of the core benefits of leveraging advanced software defined radio technology in xMax. It enables xG to rapidly deliver feature and capability updates via software-only rollouts, versus hardware upgrades and replacements required by competitive solutions."
