-- New RedACCESS(TM) MAX+ AN-80i supports premium access services
in the 3.3 to 3.8 GHz WiMAX bands --
TORONTO, Feb. 18 /CNW/ - Redline Communications Group Inc. ("Redline")
(TSX: RDL), a leading provider of WiMAX and broadband wireless infrastructure
products, today introduced the RedACCESS MAX + AN-80i(TM), the newest addition
to its suite of Broadband Wireless Infrastructure (BWI) products. The
RedACCESS MAX+ AN-80i enables network operators to offer high-bandwidth,
premium access services in the 3.3 to 3.8 GHz WiMAX frequency bands.
"The 3.5 GHz MAX+ AN-80i was designed specifically to enable carriers to
deploy high capacity connections for backhaul or premium access applications,"
said Kevin Suitor, Vice President, Marketing, Redline Communications Inc. "The
RedACCESS MAX+ AN-80i complements Redline's suite of high performance RedMAX
and RedMAX 4C WiMAX solutions, and offers carriers more options and
flexibility to support services and applications that require high-bandwidth
and long-distance connections within the WiMAX bands." Commercial availability
of the RedACCESS MAX+ AN-80i is expected in April, 2009.
Performance and Value
The RedACCESS MAX+ AN-80i enables point-to-multipoint connections of up
to 50 Mbps, in 10 MHz to 20 MHz channels. This increased throughput enables
the delivery of premium services commanding higher revenues per customer and a
more rapid return on investment for the operator. To support backhaul
application, the MAX+ AN-80i can be easily installed at dense hub-sites within
the network, which reduces the need for additional antennas and frequencies,
reducing total cost of ownership (TCO) for carriers. The MAX+ AN-80i, like
each product in Redline's WIMAX portfolio, is easily managed via the Redline
Management Suite software, enabling large scale deployments with a mix of
"The increase in users with smart devices that enable high-bandwidth
video services as well as voice and data, is stressing current mobile carrier
backhaul architectures," added Suitor. "The RedACCESS MAX+ AN-80i enables the
deployment of an overlay backhaul architecture to offload 3G & 4G data
traffic, whilst maintaining the PDH TDM network for voice backhaul."
"The demand for broadband is driving the need for carriers to maximize
their spectrum utilization and increase their available bandwidth," added
Suitor. "With the addition of the RedACCESS MAX+ AN-80i, Redline offers the
most complete range of broadband wireless backhaul and access solutions for
the 3.3 to 3.8 GHz bands."
