xMax Joins The Wireless Broadband Spectrum

The wireless broadband sector is growing exponentially, which hopefully will result in cheaper service. A new broadband service called xMax is on the horizon. xMax will “piggy-back” onto radio channels already busy with pager and TV signals. Joe Bobier says his new invention will provide wireless-enabled devices and homes with no broadband service to get fast (and cheap?) web access.

So how does it work? xMax uses weak signals detectable only by special antennas that know where to find them. As a result, xMax will allow the same scarce radio spectrum to be used for dual purposes (multitasking?). Devices using xMax would require radio chips in the $5-$6 range, and the cost for the base stations would be around $350,000.

The goal of any new technology should be more products and services available to more people at lower costs. Like other developing wireless technologies, xMax will benefit rural areas that have expensive or no broadband coverage at all.

xMax has at least one advantage over technology such as WiMAX and Flash-OFDM. It doesn’t require a dedicated radio frequency to get the job done. An xMax network is currently being built in Miami and Fort Lauderdale Florida.
