xG Technology Enhances MANET with Cognitive Mobile Time Division Ad-Hoc Network

By CIOReview | Tuesday, December 15, 2015

SARASOTA, FL: The emerging technology of mobile ad hoc network (MANET) - infrastructure less network of mobile devices connected without wires, is taken a step forward by xG Technology through the implementation of advanced cognitive radio techniques. The new innovation, Cognitive Mobile Time Division Duplex Ad Hoc Network will boost performance and quality of service in tactical network operation

MANET is a continuously self-configuring, infrastructure-less network of mobile devices connected without wires. It can change locations and configure itself swiftly and offer a means of providing wireless voice and data communications to users operating beyond the reach of fixed networks.

Rising as a component in expeditionary operations, MANETs enables workforce to execute mission objectives without the assistance of existing wireless infrastructure. It also plays a vital role in public safety, disaster response, military wireless planners and emergency communications.

However, there are some limitations with MANET. Some of them are restricted to a local area of wireless devices, while others may be connected to the Internet. Also, MANETs’ inbuilt flexibility requires a tradeoff in their system design, which results to a less than optimal level of reliability and performance in the name of deployment agility.

But with the patent Cognitive MANET, these design errors can be overcome. It essentially advances xMax wireless technology by dynamically upgrading its infrastructure to operate as a true planned MANET system injected with strong performance and built-in QoS.

“This latest patent innovation is a true game changer, as it provides a building block to designing high-performance, high-reliability tactical MANET systems with features not previously possible. It showcases xG’s ability to expand its intellectual property leadership in ways that deliver sought-after solutions in key wireless sectors. For markets requiring resilient, agile and secure wireless communications to meet critical mission objectives, this will provide true benefits,” says George Schmitt, CEO and Board Chairman of xG Technology.
