xG Technology signs teaming agreement with Force 3
Dec 29, 2011 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
xG Technology, Inc., a developer of wireless communications technologies, has signed a teaming agreement with Force 3, Inc., a technology integrator and solutions provider.
xG has been selected by Force 3 to be a named strategic partner in the proposal Force 3 will submit under the ITES-3H, or Information Technology Enterprise Solutions-3 Hardware, contract awards process. The Army will issue its RFP, or Request for Proposal, in February 2012, and the award will be announced in the summer of 2012.
If Force 3 is awarded the US Army ITES-3H contract, xG's xMax cognitive radio solutions and services will be used to fulfill the cellular wireless component of the award. The xMax cognitive radio solution was deployed earlier this year in six-month field trials conducted by the US Army, as well as by technicians in the Army Research laboratory.
The company has said that the ITES-3H contract will serve as a vehicle for the purchase of xMax cognitive radio equipment by military branches, as well as Federal agencies. The key technical aspect of the agreement with Force 3 outlines the use of xMax cognitive radio access network, or C-RAN, solutions to offer a cellular wireless component that extends the Cisco VoIP core and IP enterprise infrastructure, while adding extra wireless capacity to military and federal networks.
"We are proud to partner with strong, established organizations like Force 3. Teaming arrangements such as this one, with companies that are focused on the delivery of products and services through a comprehensive, global value chain, are consistent with our go-to-market strategy for growing the sale and distribution of xMax equipment into additional vertical markets," said John Coleman, CEO of xG Technology.
If chosen to fulfill the award by the Department of the Army, Force 3 will serve as the prime contractor and xG would enter into a formal subcontractor agreement with Force 3 to supply and deliver xMax products and services in fulfillment of the contact.
