- RedCONNEX(TM) MAX+ AN-80i delivers maximum throughput, high bandwidth,
and enhanced WiMAX features -
TORONTO, Sept. 30 /CNW/ - Redline Communications Group Inc. ("Redline")
(TSX and AIM: RDL), a leading provider of WiMAX and broadband wireless
infrastructure products, today announced the launch of the MAX + AN-80i(TM),
the newest addition to its Broadband Wireless Infrastructure (BWI) products.
The MAX+ AN-80i is designed for deployment by WiMAX spectrum holders around
the world as a complementary offering to Redline's award winning RedMAX(TM)
and RedMAX 4C(TM) Mobile WiMAX products.
Redline's MAX+ AN-80i operates in the 3.3 to 3.8 GHz WiMAX bands,
enabling operators to cover 500 MHz of spectrum with a single software
configurable radio solution. Complementing Redline's RedMAX products, which
are focused on residential and small business access, the MAX+ is built for
high throughput backhaul type connections, providing an ideal solution for
mobile operators looking for a licensed band alternative to point-to-point
microwave technologies, especially when deploying small cells in urban
environments. It also gives network operators the ability to offer premium
business-grade communication services to large enterprise customers in
addition to their WiMAX access service offerings. The MAX+ incorporates
contention based protocols designed to comply with regulations for operation
in the 3.65 to 3.70 GHz spectrum in the United States.
"Redline's BWI products have always delivered on the performance and
reliability we need to meet our customers' demands for broadband
communications," said Juan Carlos Pacheco, CEO of IDNet. "With the
introduction of the MAX+ AN-80i, we can utilize new bands and deliver
WiMAX-like features such as the low latency required for voice and video
"With many mobile operators upgrading their networks to increase data
throughputs to end users, there is a growing need to backhaul IP based
traffic. The MAX+ provides carriers a long range, high throughput, cost
effective solution that gives them the flexibility to add capacity where they
want it, when they want it," said Kevin Suitor, Vice President of Marketing
and Business Development, Redline Communications.
Redline's MAX+ AN-80i product is software upgradeable to the RedACCESS
MAX+ AN-80i point-to-multipoint product, which will be released in the first
quarter of 2009.
