MENA Energy Provider to Connect Power Grid using Redline's Wireless
TORONTO, May 28, 2013 /CNW/ - Redline Communications (www.rdlcom.com Group Inc. TSX: RDL), a leading provider of rugged broadband wireless solutions, today
announced their rugged wireless infrastructure system has been selected
to provide connectivity to 500 power substations owned by an energy
provider in the MENA (Middle East/North Africa) Region
Redline's system, using its eLTE-MT wireless products, will deliver a
multi-use network connecting 500 power substations located across a
40,000 square kilometre (15,000 square mile) area, roughly equal to the
size of the Netherlands. The machine-to-machine (M2M) network will be
used to securely monitor and control machinery at the unmanned stations
of the power grid. It will also be used to connect and control high
definition video cameras located at each station, allowing remote
operators to "see" the stations over distances of up to 30 km (12
miles). Lastly, employees who periodically travel to the substations
will also be able to use their laptops and smart phones to make calls
and connect to their corporate systems over the Redline network.
"We were selected because our system is versatile, powerful, rugged and
secure," said Eric Melka, Redline's CEO. "Connecting an entire power
grid requires real-time high speed communication, and flawless
operation 24 hours per day 7 days per week. The implications of
failure are severe, and Redline quite simply has the most reliable and
secure wireless system on the market."
Redline's private wide area networks are the gold standard for other
energy-based applications such as digital oil fields and public
infrastructure monitoring. All of these applications share common
requirements: a network powerful enough to cover long distances with
the smallest number of towers; secure enough to protect sensitive data;
rugged and reliable enough to perform flawlessly without need for
onsite maintenance; and versatile enough to handle a wide range of data
types - from the wire-like demands of video surveillance communications
to the small packet requirements of M2M communications - all on the
same network. Redline's system delivers on all of these attributes.
"This new customer win extends our footprint in the energy sector and
significant deals like these that well exceed $1M continue to drive
order momentum and growth," added Melka.
Purpose built for the tough industrial marketplace, the eLTE-MT features
a robust physical design that withstands the harshest environments.
Powerful hardware accelerators ensure all data is processed and
transmitted at speeds of up to 120 Mbps UBR with wire-line latency.
Patented advanced proprietary interference mitigation maintains optimum
performance in noisy and non line-of-sight conditions, and Quality of
Service (QoS) profiles actively manage traffic priority and flow to
dependably deliver simultaneous streams of data, voice and video
traffic in both uplink and downlink. The eLTE-MT is FIPS 140-2
compliant and supports full over-the-air (OTA) data with X.509
authentication and AES encryption for ultra-secure operation. Once
installed, the eLTE-MT provides OTA management, software upgrades and
functional upgrades using license key options that remove the need to
physically access the system.
