Cognitive Radio Networks for Emergency Communications June 2012

  1. 1. xMax: Cognitive Radio Access Network (c-RAN)Applications & Benefits for FirstResponders and Beyond The information presented herein is confidential and subject to change without notice. xG® and xMax® are registered trademarks of xG Technology, Inc.

  2. 2. Introduction to xG Technology ► Leading player in cognitive radio network technology – enabling more efficient use of scarce and/or expensive wireless spectrum – continuing rapid growth of wireless data consumption creating „spectrum crisis‟ ► Positive third party product validation ► Exceptional in-house R&D and product delivery team and extensive patent portfolio (over 60 US and 140 international patents and patent filings) ► Significant near-term opportunities within existing core vertical markets ► Developer of xMax an all IP mobile broadband solution for real-time voice & video, broadband data, and SMS (LTE is data only with limited voice)A drive test I conducted of the xG xMax network in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (all while watching the spectrum inreal-time on a spectrum analyzer) showed that when the mobile unit drives into an area with existinginterference, the xMax network automatically changes to a different channel to avoid the interference. Thischange occurred fast enough that not a single syllable of speech was missed.”– Andy Seybold, Leading Public Safety Industry Analyst The information presented herein is confidential and subject to change without notice. xG® and xMax® are registered trademarks of xG Technology, Inc.

  4. 4. Cognitive Radio Overview ► Cognitive (smart) radios are able to identify spectrum (i.e. radio frequencies) that is not being used, and to quickly tune to those frequencies to transmit and/or receive signals. ► Have the ability to instantly find other spectrum if interference is detected on the frequencies being used. ► Can adapt their own power output, modulation, channel plan, network protocol, etc.. dynamically to maximize throughput (or range) and minimize interference. Cognitive radios dynamically optimize spectrum utilization through opportunistic use of all available resources The information presented herein is confidential and subject to change without notice. xG® and xMax® are registered trademarks of xG Technology, Inc.

  5. 5. Keys to xG Cognitive Radio– xG xMax system can change channels in the xAP face of interference xMod The information presented herein is confidential and subject to change without notice. xG® and xMax® are registered trademarks of xG Technology, Inc.

  6. 6. Interference Avoidance:xAP Detects Interference Non xG user – xAP determines xAP non xG system is operating nearby – xMax system avoids using busy channels – Channels are marked for reuse if Non xG interference clears user xMod The information presented herein is confidential and subject to change without notice. xG® and xMax® are registered trademarks of xG Technology, Inc.

  7. 7. Interference Avoidance:xG Subscriber Detects– Remote xG subscriber device detects interference that AP does not see on channel 1– xG subscriber device selects xG AP xG AP different channel from another on CH 1 on CH 8 AP– xG “plays nice” with other spectrum users. xG Device Non xG Non xG user user The information presented herein is confidential and subject to change without notice. xG® and xMax® are registered trademarks of xG Technology, Inc.

  11. 11. xMax Cognitive Technology xMax Layered Cognitive Approach: – Spectrum sensing: Interference based detection of transmitters. – Spatial processing: MIMO technologies allow resistance to interferers. Optimize SNR using multiple antenna processing. – Spectrum sharing: Able to operate in crowed shared spectrum (ISM UNI II etc.). Detect interferers, mitigate them, or avoid them by changing operating parameters or frequencies. – Spectrum management: Capture the most available spectrum. Terminals and Base Station can change operating frequencies dynamically. – Spectrum mobility: Use spectrum dynamically. Mobile user stations and base stations can decide to change bands where they operate.
