Handset contract for Cambridge Consultants

Cambridge Consultants has secured a multi-million dollar contract with Florida-based xG Technology to design and develop their next generation VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) wireless handset.

The development, when complete, could benefit consumers and network operators by substantially reducing the cost of rolling out mobile networks.

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, a developer of 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 in a 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.
