announces that it has secured a multi-million dollar contract with Florida-based xG Technology Inc. to design and develop their next generation VoIP wireless handset. The handset is capable of wide area operation enabled by xG’s proprietary technology. The development, when complete, promises to bring considerable value to both consumers and network operators by substantially reducing the cost of rolling out a mobile network.
Following on from the successful concept development phase, under this latest contract, Cambridge Consultants will provide a turnkey development – including industrial, electronic and mechanical design and user interface software– for the TX60 handset on behalf of xG Technology Inc., a developer of revolutionary wireless communications technologies.
Based on xG Technology’s xMax platform, the product will allow the world’s first wide area wireless mobile VoIP network to be implemented with an elegant mass-produced handset. The TX60 will initially be commercially available through independent local operators in the USA. Carrier customers can set up local transceivers and, using an area’s existing internet backbone, offer subscribers low-cost, flat rate, mobile voice and data to any part of the USA and, in time, other countries.
