- Service Providers in the U.S. now have access to Redline's full suite
of advanced RedMAX products -
TORONTO, July 23 /CNW/ - Redline Communications Group Inc. ("Redline")
(TSX and AIM: RDL), a leading provider of WiMAX and broadband wireless
infrastructure products, today announced that it has received Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) approval for its RedMAX(TM) AN100-UX Base
Station and RedMAX(TM) SU-I Indoor Subscriber Unit in the United States. This
approval completes the certification of Redline's full suite of WiMAX Forum
Certified(R) 3.65 GHz RedMAX offerings.
Redline was first to receive FCC approval for WiMAX products in the 3.65
GHz band. Its RedMAX AN-100U Base Station and RedMAX SU-O Outdoor Subscriber
Unit were certified for deployment in the United States in November 2007. The
certification of the RedMAX AN-100UX Macro Base Station will give service
providers a greater selection of WiMAX products to meet their specific
business requirements. The RedMAX SU-I, which operates with both the AN-100
and AN-100UX, supports true user self-installs, enabling rapid and
cost-effective residential and small business deployments.
"With more than 160 carriers deploying Redline's RedMAX products
worldwide, Redline is a global leader in delivering WiMAX solutions that offer
service providers a positive business model from a cost, capacity and ease of
deployment perspective", said Kevin Suitor, Vice President of Marketing and
Business Development, Redline Communications. "By choosing RedMAX, operators
can realize a rapid return on their investment and benefit from the highest
capacity base stations in the industry, with the ability to support more than
500 users per base station radio."
Redline's 3.65 GHz RedMAX products have been widely deployed by service
providers in eighteen states. Among the first RedMAX deployments in the United
States are Rapid Link, a Diversified Communication Services Company of
Atlanta, Georgia, WWX Systems and LLC of Denver, Colorado.
"We are seeing such demand for WiMAX-based services that any ability to
shorten the install interval is important to us. The new indoor modem allows
us to install customers faster without compromising quality," said Matt
Liotta, Chief Technology Officer, Rapid Link.
