xG Technology : FCC Chairman Expresses Support for Spectrum Sharing, Unlicensed Spectrum Use; xMax is Key Part of the Solution

08/01/2015 | 05:57pm US/Eastern

As reported in Fierce Wireless, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said he thinks the wireless industry and regulatory world are going through an evolutionary process where the outcome has to be recognition that spectrum is something that has to be shared.

"The technology is helping us work our way through," he said at an event titled "Maximizing the benefits of broadband" at the Brookings Institution. "I'm a big believer in the future of sharing a limited resource."

"There was a time when the thinking around spectrum was "it's mine, you can't touch it," but it's clear that due to the increase in demand for spectrum, "that mindset has to change, and sharing has to be an important part of it," he said.

Sharing is considered in pretty much every spectrum-related proceeding the FCC takes up nowadays, he said.

Noting that some 60 percent of licensed traffic is carried by unlicensed Wi-Fi, the Chairman also noted the success and growing importance of unlicensed spectrum.

Wheeler also mentioned the virtues of software-defined networking (SDN) models with virtualized components that decrease network operating expenses.

xMax cognitive radio technology is a field-tested software defined system that was designed from the ground up to operate and thrive in crowded, contested frequencies and noisy spectrum bands.

Using a combination of Dynamic Spectrum Access and patented MIMO-based interference mitigation technology, xMax can deliver robust mobile broadband connectivity in challenging wireless environments that would cause other radio systems to fail to operate.

xG Technology is also a strong supporter of the FCC chairman's push for more unlicensed spectrum, which by definition is a shared spectrum resource. The adoption of cognitive radio technologies like xMax could lead to a dramatic increase in spectrum efficiency. This will help ensure that consumer, commercial and government users of wireless systems will continue to have reliable and unfettered access to the data and applications they depend on.
