    -- CH2M HILL expands Redline's broadband international wireless network
    deployment expertise --

    TORONTO, April 19 /CNW/ - Redline Communications, a leading provider of
WiMAX and standards-based broadband wireless infrastructure products, today
announced that CH2M HILL's Enterprise Management Solutions business has signed
an agreement to become a Redline Certified Gold Partner. Under the agreement,
CH2M HILL will incorporate Redline's RedMAX(TM) family of WiMAX Forum
Certified(TM) products and RedCONNEX(TM) broadband wireless infrastructure
products to establish advanced communications networks for engineering,
telecommunications and information technology applications.
    CH2M HILL has chosen Redline's broadband wireless products to deliver
broadband communications for its projects around the world. With the Redline
Certified Gold Partner Agreement, CH2M HILL meets stringent requirements for
network planning and deployment expertise, ensuring its team has the
capabilities to install the most reliable and robust wireless networks.
    "The telecommunications networks CH2M HILL implements require
high-bandwidth, advanced broadband wireless solutions that meet strict federal
security standards and can stand up to challenging environmental conditions,"
said Kelly Guthner, Vice President - Technology Solutions. "Redline's
broadband infrastructure products stand up to the rigorous demands required in
our most complex projects, delivering the range, capacity, security and
reliability required to quickly deploy mission-critical wireless networks."
    Among the many projects for which CH2M HILL has implemented Redline's
products is the U.S. Department of Energy's nuclear weapons complex at the
Rocky Flats facility in Colorado, one of the most complex environmental
cleanups in the world. Redline's RedCONNEX(TM) solutions delivered
point-to-multipoint broadband communications throughout the 6300-acre project
site. The project required five AN-50e base stations communicating with ten
subscriber units in each sector to support VoIP and data applications
including GPS tracking, VLAN networking, emergency services communications and
database hosting over a secure, 24-hour, monitored network.
    "CH2M HILL is recognized as one of the foremost engineering and
consulting firms in the world and manages some of the most complex and
demanding projects in a range of environmental conditions," said Kevin Suitor,

solutions they need to succeed and to bring our broadband wireless solutions
