"Proving any new technology can be a daunting task, even if you have world changing technology, and xMax is exactly one such technology, that could significantly increase signal range of our mobile devices. xG Technology announced a contract to deploy on a trial basis its xMax cognitive mobile network over a large part of the US Army's Fort Bliss Desert Training areas in Texas and New Mexico. xMax is a cognitive radio based mobile VoIP and data system that uses an end-to-end Internet Protocol [IP] system architecture and operates in the license-free ISM 900MHz band [902-928MHz]," writes BSN.com's John Oram.

"Fort Bliss is the US Army's largest training facility and a leading center for the testing of new weapons and communications systems. With an area of about 1,700 square miles [4,400 km2], it is the Army's second-largest installation behind the adjacent White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. Fort Bliss also provides the largest contiguous tract [1,500 sq mi, 3,900 km2] of virtually unrestricted airspace in the continental United States; the airspace is used for missile and artillery training and testing," Oram writes.
