RAS-Extend Smart Antenna Systems deliver long range networking at speeds
up to 100 Mbps to the most challenging end points: the ones that move
TORONTO, April 10, 2014 /CNW/ - Redline Communications (www.rdlcom.com) Group Inc. (TSX: RDL), a leading provider of mission-critical wireless networks, today
announced two new specialized additions to its RAS series of high speed
mobile wireless terminals - RAS-Extend Land Vehicle (LV), and
RAS-Extend Marine. RAS Extend Land Vehicle (LV) delivers high speed
network connectivity to people and equipment in land vehicles operating
in remote areas, while RAS-Extend Marine effortlessly connects offshore
platforms and marine vessels.
"Redline specializes in mission critical wireless networks - for oil
and gas producers, utilities and military - all users with the most
challenging networking needs," said Bojan Subasic, vice president of
development and production at Redline. "What Redline delivers with our
RAS-Extend is high speed and long range wireless communications for
mobile assets such as ships or maritime drilling platforms, as well as
a system that anyone can use at any time without specialized training."
The RAS-Extend LV and Marine are the first wireless broadband networking
systems designed to connect mobile assets in remote locations, by
automatically locating and connecting to a network base station and
establishing reliable high speed connectivity. RAS - which stands for
Rapid Alignment System - combines an intelligent antenna positioning
system and integrates it into Redline's flagship product family, the
RDL-3000. These features allow mobile users in remote areas to
maintain wireless connections with speeds as fast as 100 Mbps and a
range exceeding 50 miles (80 km) from the closest base station.
"Both the RAS-Extend LV and Marine are already in limited use with
customers in the oil and gas industry," added Subasic. "RAS-Extend LV
is bringing connectivity to mobile users in the oil fields of North
Dakota, and the RAS Extend Marine is allowing vessels to stay in
constant contact with offshore drilling platforms even as they move.
They are using it for a wide range of applications - including
real-time M2M communications, SCADA, high resolution video, Wi-Fi,
telephony, sat comm extension, and backhaul services."
These new RAS systems are built on top of Redline's Universal Wireless
Transport™ (UWT™) platform, the industry's first and only wireless
broadband network solution to operate on any frequency between 100 MHz
and 6 GHz - a range that encompasses virtually all wireless broadband
applications - giving network planners the broadest range of options to
build networks globally.
