    Redline poised to meet pent-up demand for true WiMAX solutions
    with first complete FCC-approved WiMAX systems for the United
    States

    TORONTO, Dec. 5 /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(TM) WiMAX Outdoor Subscriber Unit (SU-O) in the United States. With
this approval, Redline now offers the only complete FCC-certified WiMAX system
for the newly-available 3.65 GHz frequency band.
    "Redline is pleased to be celebrating another first in WiMAX, as the
first equipment manufacturer to receive FCC approval for 3.65 GHz WiMAX
products," said Kevin Suitor, Vice President, Marketing and Business
Development. "Redline is set to meet the pent up demand in the United States
for our RedMAX products, which are among the most widely-deployed WiMAX Forum
Certified(TM) systems, and are now powering 44 commercial networks around the
world. Redline's focus on high-performance and interoperable network equipment
has enabled operators worldwide to reap the benefits of true WiMAX
technologies."
    Redline's RedMAX SU-O is designed for outdoor installation at business or
residential locations to establish broadband wireless connectivity to the
network operator's WiMAX base station. Each Redline RedMAX AN-100U base
station can provide broadband connections to thousands of business or
residential users.
    "Redline's RedMAX products are well suited for deployment in the 3.65 GHz
band under the rules set out by the FCC," added Mario Pidutti, Director,
Product Management at Redline. "Using time-division duplexing (TDD), RedMAX
products enable service providers to support high volumes of traffic within a
small amount of spectrum. This technology advantage translates to a stronger
business model, as the operator can support a higher number of commercial
subscribers and generate more revenues from their network."

    Redline's RedMAX family of WiMAX solutions includes the world's first
complete system to receive the WiMAX Forum Certified(TM) mark for conformance

of its RedMAX family to include products for additional frequency bands,
applications and standards.

    RedMAX 4C Mobile WiMAX Platform

    The RedMAX 4C is the latest addition to Redline's family of WiMAX
products. Operating in the 2.5 GHz and 3.5 GHz spectrum bands, RedMAX 4C is
