Redline first to receive FCC approval for 3.65 GHz WiMAX Products



    - RedMAX(TM) products will enable operators to establish WiMAX
    networks in more communities throughout the United States -

    TORONTO, Nov. 16 /CNW/ - Redline Communications Inc., a leading provider
of standards-based WiMAX and broadband wireless infrastructure products, today
announced it has received Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approval for
its RedMAX AN-100U WiMAX base station in the United States. The first 3.65 GHz
WiMAX product to be approved for operation in the United States, the RedMAX
base station will enable operators across the United States to deploy WiMAX
services using the newly-available 3.65 GHz spectrum.
    "Redline is pleased with the FCC's decision to enable more operators to
deliver broadband wireless services to rural and underserved areas," said
Kevin Suitor, Vice President, Marketing and Business Development. "With more
than 130 deployments of our WiMAX Forum Certified(TM) products worldwide,
Redline has seen the benefit of enabling operators to bring true broadband
services to more communities. Service providers throughout the U.S. can now
rely on Redline's expertise and proven technologies to establish successful
WiMAX networks."
    Commercial testing of Redline's 3.65 GHz RedMAX products has been
performed under Test and Development licenses for the 3.65 GHz spectrum for
several months, following the Federal Communications Commission's decision to
allow WiMAX deployments in the 3.65 GHz spectrum. "With the FCC approval of
Redline's 3.65 GHz RedMAX product, service providers can leverage a mature
platform, that has been installed worldwide, and is available for immediate
deployment in the US," said Mario Pidutti Director of Product Management for
RedMAX.
    "The broadband performance and interoperability of Redline's WiMAX
systems will help service providers across the United States to deliver a
broad range of communications services," said Michael Anderson, President,
PDQLink, a Wireless Internet Service Provider in Illinois that is currently
testing Redline's 3.65 GHz RedMAX products. "The unique licensing scheme for
the 3.65 GHz band put in place by the FCC provides service providers
additional tools to deploy affordable alternative broadband services across
the U.S., while enabling them to share the spectrum with existing satellite
owners that also support essential communciations services."
    "Redline is enabling carriers to establish profitable business models
with their WiMAX networks. Our 44 commercial, revenue-generating RedMAX
networks include the world's highest-capacity WiMAX networks in existence
today," added Suitor. "Our focus on open, interoperable WiMAX solutions
ensures our customers can establish a viable long-term WiMAX business and
network strategy."
