xG Technology promises mobile VoIP

VoIP technology is great at saving its users money, but it does have some disadvantages – you have to be connected to a computer to use it, and VoIP calls are blocked on some networks by cellular companies concerned that they are missing out on revenues.
There is also an issue with quality, as cellular networks are not designed for Internet voice traffic.
US-based xG Technology has addressed these problems with its xMax system, which has been specifically designed for mobile VoIP.
The network uses available free spectrum, rather than licensed spectrum and an all-IP architecture that is less expensive to operate than traditional networks.
xG’s mobile VoIP network has now been tested by Rich Tehrani, the CEO of TMCnet, and an expert in VoIP.
Although the test was limited in its scope, he used a phone connected to a laptop while being driven around Fort Lauderdale, and reported that the voice quality was fine.
There still seems to be issues to address, as the phone eventually overheated, but it seems that mobile VoIP could not be too far away.
