    -- MAX+ AN-80i provides long-range backhaul connections for
       the 3.3 - 3.8 GHz WiMAX bands --
    

    TORONTO, Jan. 14 /CNW/ - Redline Communications Inc., a leading provider
of standards-based WiMAX and broadband wireless infrastructure products, today
announced the Company has received approval from the United States' Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) for its MAX+ AN-80i product. The MAX+ AN-80i,
which is currently marketed under Redline's RedCONNEX(TM) family of
point-to-point Broadband Wireless Infrastructure (BWI) products, is now
approved for delivery of carrier-grade long-range connections of up to 48 Mbps
within the 3.65 GHz frequency band regulations in the United States.
    "With the FCC approval of the MAX+ AN-80i, wireless operators across the
United States now have an ideal solution for establishing long-range wireless
connections in the 3.65 GHz band, which is being used by many operators for
deployment of WiMAX networks," said Kevin Suitor, Vice President, Marketing.
"Redline has established itself as a leader in delivering interoperable access
solutions for the 3.3 to 3.8 GHz bands. The introduction of the MAX+ AN-80i to
this market gives operators more flexibility to offer complementary services
under the same umbrella."
    Redline's RedCONNEX MAX+ AN-80i operates in the 3.3 to 3.8 GHz WiMAX
bands, enabling operators to cover up to 500 MHz of spectrum (in accordance
with operators' regional regulatory restrictions) with a single software
configurable radio solution. Complementing Redline's RedMAX products, which
are focused on residential and small business access, the MAX+ AN-80i is built
for high throughput backhaul type connections, providing an ideal solution for
mobile operators looking for a licensed band alternative to point-to-point
microwave technologies, especially when deploying small cells in urban
environments. Offering the lowest-latency connections in the 3.65 GHz
frequency band, the MAX+ AN-80i also gives network operators the ability to
offer premium business-grade communication services to large enterprise
customers in addition to their WiMAX access service offerings.
    "Having conducted extensive trial deployments of Redline's MAX+ AN-80i
over the last several months, we have found it to be the highest quality and
most reliable of any radio in its category," said Robert Bain, Owner of noWyr,
Inc., a broadband and last mile service provider operating in the Pierce and
King Counties, in Washington State. "We have relied on Redline's broadband
wireless infrastructure products for several years, having chosen them to
replace competitive products that were not performing to our standards. We are
pleased that Redline has introduced the MAX+ AN-80i and has furthered its
leadership in the delivering high-performance products for the 3.65 GHz band."

    RedACCESS MAX+ AN-80i

    The FCC-approved MAX+ AN-80i will also be marketed under the
RedACCESS(TM) family of point-to-multipoint broadband wireless infrastructure
products in 2009. The RedACCESS MAX+ AN-80i enables operators to connect
multiple sites within a single wireless network.
