Last week, representatives from xG® Technology presented well-received suggestions to the Federal Communications Commission and the U.S. House Subcommittee on Communications, Technology and the Internet on improving spectrum usage. Both the FCC and Congress have expressed concern lately about spectrum availability. The xMax® mobile VoIP network developed by xG has the ability to significantly increase both usage and availability because it operates on unlicensed spectrum.
The Pentagon announced on Friday it has authorized the use Twitter, Facebook and other so-called "Web 2.0" sites across the U.S. military, saying the benefits of social media outweighed security concerns. The decision, which comes at a time of growing concern over cyber-security, applies only to the military's non-classified network.
