Redline connects passengers on Utah Transit Authority's high speed commuter train



    
    Redline's RedACCESS(TM) AN80i enables passengers to access free
    on-board high speed wireless internet services
    

    TORONTO, Sept. 3 /CNW/ - Redline Communications Group Inc. ("Redline")
(TSX and AIM: RDL), a leading provider of WiMAX and broadband wireless
infrastructure products, today announced that Utah Transit Authority (UTA) has
selected Redline's RedACCESS AN80i broadband wireless platform to provide
passengers with free Wi-Fi access aboard UTA's new high speed commuter train.
    Redline's AN80i point to multipoint products were deployed on 12
double-decker trains on the new 40 mile (64 km) FrontRunner commuter rail
between Ogden City and Salt Lake City in Utah. The RedACCESS system was
installed along the tracks at 0.5 to 2.5 mile intervals. The track-side units
communicate with on-board units connected to Wi-Fi access points on each
train. As the train passes along the 40 mile corridor, connections from one
access point to another are handed off, providing passengers seamless high
speed connectivity.
    Redline's Value Added Distribution Partner, Talley Communications, was
responsible for providing the equipment necessary to carry out the project.
"Picking the right product is critical for these types of projects, and
pairing up Redline products with an integrator like Wasatch, ensures success
in the solution delivered," said Hal Wooden, Vice President, Talley
Communications.
    Redline's Certified Integration Partners Wasatch Electric and Nomad
Digital were contracted by UTA to install and deploy the solution. The Utah
Transit Authority network is the latest commuter rail project for which Nomad
Digital has selected Redline's broadband wireless products.
    "Free high-speed WiFi services will enable UTA to increase its ridership
by attracting business commuters who want to use their time more effectively,"
said Jim Clark, Project Manager, Wasatch Electric. "Working with reliable
partners and Redline's high performance equipment enables us to deliver on
time every time."
    Six weeks after the opening of the new commuter rail, the number of
passengers using Wi-Fi increased from 300 per day in May 2008 to 900 per day
in July 2008.
    "The potential for providing mobile broadband data links to transit and
other mobile vehicle fleets is largely untapped in the USA. The FrontRunner
train project has provided us with a world-class reference site and we are
already working on new opportunities in the US with Redline, Wasatch and
Talley," said Nigel Wallbridge, Executive Chairman of Nomad Digital.
    "UTA is truly a forward-looking organization that will set the trend for
advanced transportation and customer services in the future," said Christopher
Koeneman, Vice President, Worldwide Sales, Redline Communications. "We are
thrilled that the RedACCESS products were chosen as part of the solution."
