RDL-3000 wireless broadband product family now available in the 3.5 GHz
licensed band, helps Telecom Operators re-use spectrum as they migrate
TORONTO, Feb. 13, 2013 /CNW/ - Redline Communications (www.rdlcom.com Group Inc. TSX: RDL), a leading provider of broadband wireless solutions for industrial and
telecom applications, today announced that their entire family of
RDL-3000 wireless broadband systems now operates in the 3300-3800 MHz
licensed band (known as 3.5 GHz), one of the licensed spectrum profiles
used by telecom operators.
Redline counts more than 200 telecom operators among their customers.
Like many telecom providers, Redline's customers have been migrating
away from the WiMAX standard to take advantage of the more powerful LTE
standard for delivering mobile voice and data services, leaving behind
expensive and now underutilized 3.5 GHz spectrum. Like LTE, Redline's
RDL-3000 system offers higher speeds, lower latency and greater
capacity than WiMAX, but unlike LTE it operates in the 3.5 GHz licensed
band. With this new offering from Redline, operators can use their 3.5
GHz spectrum to deliver high quality fixed services to their most
demanding customers while they use their LTE spectrum for mobile
One of the first Redline customers to use the RDL-3000 system for 3.5
GHz is Pakistan's leading cellular and Blackberry service provider,
Mobilink. With more than 35 million subscribers and Pakistan's largest
voice and data network, Mobilink has built its reputation through
delivery of cutting-edge, integrated technology and the largest
portfolio of value added services available in the region. A longtime
customer of Redline's wireless products, Mobilink is purchasing
Redline's more powerful RDL-3000 based product line for all future use
of its 3.5 GHz licensed spectrum.
"We developed the RDL-3000 3.5 GHz product as part of deliberate
migration strategy for our telecom operator customers who are migrating
to LTE for mobile services," said Rob Williams, chief operating officer
of Redline Communications. "As they move their mobile customers to LTE
and their 3.5 GHz spectrum becomes available, they can now use it to
deliver high end fixed services with LTE-like speeds. Using Redline's
RDL-3000 they will continue to realize a return on the millions of
dollars they've invested in 3.5 GHz spectrum."
The RDL-3000 family consists of the RD-3000 SC (Sector Controller) with
GPS and Synchronization, the RDL-3000 Subscriber Unit with external
antenna ranging from 37 cm panel to 60 cm parabolic, the Enterprise as
well as the eLTE-MT.
For the delivery of business access services, the software-configured
RDL-3000 allows for Point-To-Point and Point-to-MultiPoint
applications, customizable quality of service controls and the ability
to remotely change the delivered bandwidth on a unit-by-unit basis.
