xG Technology Receives $3.3 Million Purchase Order From NEFCOM

Cognitive radio networking equipment supplier xG Technology, Inc. has revealed that the company has recently received a $3.3 million purchase order from Northeast Florida Telephone Company (NEFCOM), a Florida-based provider of local phone, long distance, Internet services and telephone equipment.

Per this announcement, the order consists of $2.4 million for xMax cognitive radio networking equipment including xMax wireless access points – an xMSC mobile switching center – and xMod personal hotspots (capable of supporting existing smartphones, tablets and laptops), as well as engineering services estimated at $877,000.  

According to xG Technology, it will enable NEFCOM to provide wireless voice and advanced broadband services in its regulated telephone market area located in Baker County, Florida.  

The cognitive radio networking equipment supplier said that this purchase order is the result of a previous xMax trial conducted with Townes Tele-Communications, Inc., the parent company of NEFCOM.

Commenting on the announcement, Larry Townes, chairman and CEO of Townes, said, "I look forward to xG's deployment and very much anticipate xG's promise of high quality, reasonably priced broadband service for the United States' rural telephone providers and the important customer base which they serve."

Similarly, George Schmitt, xG’s non-executive director, said, "We are very pleased to receive this order from NEFCOM. Rural broadband is a key target market for xG, and this announcement validates the potential of xMax to deliver high-performance, cost-effective wireless capability to the thousands of rural and independent service providers seeking an effective broadband solution."

Under the terms of the order, xG will be paid upon the delivery of xMax equipment to NEFCOM, following FCC certification of the RF devices, which is expected to take place in the fourth quarter of 2012.
