    TORONTO, Feb. 5 /CNW/ - Redline Communications Group Inc., (TSX and
AIM: RDL) a leading provider of standards-based WiMAX and broadband wireless
infrastructure products, today announced the launch of its Broadband Wireless
Infrastructure (BWI) business unit to support the growth of Redline's global
sales channels for its wireless backhaul and access products. Concurrent with
the launch of the new business unit, Redline has introduced the RedACCESS(TM)
brand of point-to-multipoint products which complements its popular
RedCONNEX(TM) family of backhaul solutions.
    "The introduction of the BWI business unit reflects Redline's continued
focus on delivering a full suite of broadband wireless network solutions to
meet the needs of the growing communications market," said Majed Sifri, Chief
Executive Officer, Redline Communications. "With an increased focus on
building our global sales channels for the RedACCESS and RedCONNEX products,
we believe the BWI business unit will represent a significant portion of our
revenues in 2008 and beyond."
    The BWI business unit will operate under the direction of Elik Jaeger,
Redline's recently appointed Vice President, Broadband Wireless
Infrastructure. Mr. Jaeger joined Redline in late 2007 with more than
15 years' experience developing and bringing products to market for major
broadband wireless equipment manufacturers, including Alvarion and Motorola.
Jaeger's international experience includes several years managing a multi-site
operation in Bucharest developing WiMAX products, network management systems
and other broadband wireless offerings.
    Redline's RedACCESS and RedCONNEX products have been deployed by
companies from a number of industry sectors including utility, oil and gas,
healthcare, emergency services, enterprise users, and others in more than
80 countries. Each of Redline's BWI products delivers reliable and robust
connections of up to 90 Mbps over distances of more than 80 km (50 miles).
Both the RedACCESS and RedCONNEX families include solutions for the license
exempt 5.4GHz and 5.8GHz spectrum, with products for additional bands planned
for launch during the first quarter of 2008.
    "With the proven performance of the RedCONNEX and RedACCESS products, and
its recognized WiMAX leadership, Redline has established a solid reputation
for delivering industry-leading broadband wireless solutions," said Elik
Jaeger. "With our increased focus on growing our BWI product family and
expanding our sales capabilities for these products, I believe Redline will be
well positioned to significantly grow this product category, especially in the
rapidly growing oil and gas, utility, and other key market sectors. I am
pleased to have joined Redline at this exciting time in its development."
