SARASOTA, Fla., June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- xG Technology, Inc. ("xG" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: XGTI, XGTIW), a developer of wireless communications and spectrum sharing technologies, announced today that it has joined the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM). Founded in 1952 as The U.S. Civil Defense Council, IAEM is now the premier worldwide organization for emergency management professionals.

According to Tim Moynihan, Vice President of Sales at xG Technology, membership in IAEM confirms the company's commitment to helping emergency management teams solve their most pressing communications challenges during a crisis. "Joining IAEM signals our staunch dedication to making a difference in emergency management, which is an important sector for xG," he said. "The xMax system is a first-of-its-kind mobile and scalable wireless broadband data network that can be rapidly deployed anywhere to provide voice, video, and data communications when traditional infrastructure is down due to disasters, whether natural or man-made.
