Redline Unveils the RedMAX 4C SC-100e Mobile WiMAX Base Station for Carrier and Smart Grid Networks



    
    -- Company to demonstrate the latest addition to its fixed and mobile
    WiMAX solutions at 4G World 2009 in Chicago, IL --
    

    MARKHAM, ON, Sept. 10 /CNW/ - Redline Communications Inc., (TSX:RDL) a
leading provider of standards-based WiMAX and broadband wireless
infrastructure products, today unveiled the RedMAX 4C SC-100e Mobile WiMAX
base station, the latest addition to its complete roster of fixed, nomadic and
mobile WiMAX products. The RedMAX 4C SC-100e, which incorporates IEEE
802.16e-2005 technology, will be demonstrated at the 4G World event in
Chicago, IL from September 15 to 17, 2009.
    The new RedMAX 4C SC-100e offers carriers, energy companies including
utility and oil and gas organizations, and other network operators in key
vertical markets, a cost-effective and high capacity solution to establish a
wireless network using the most advanced WiMAX technology available today.
Based upon the PHY (Physical Layer) and MAC (Medium Access Control Layer) that
Redline developed for its award winning RedMAX 4C products, the SC-100e is
small, lightweight and easy-to install and offers a flexible design that
supports up to three high-power radios within a single 1U base station unit,
making it one of the smallest, most cost-effective macro base station Mobile
WiMAX solutions available today. The SC-100e also enables a smooth transition
to Redline's chassis-based RedMAX 4C SC-1000 base station as operators grow
their networks.
    "Redline has applied its best-in-class WiMAX technologies and expertise
to develop the most cost effective and high performance 802.16e WiMAX product
on the market today," said Kevin Suitor, Vice President, Corporate Marketing,
Redline Communications Inc. "As the developer of WiMAX product offerings that
have been deployed by hundreds of network operators around the world, Redline
has drawn on its unique and in-depth experience in a number of industry
sectors to deliver a Mobile WiMAX product that adaptable to fit the specific
needs of each of the markets we serve."
    The RedMAX 4C SC-100e includes an integrated GPS and multi-sector
support, which simplifies network planning and supports more subscribers with
less infrastructure. Unlike any other Mobile WiMAX base station on the market
today, the SC-100e has the capacity to cover an entire 360 degree macro
coverage area using just one base station unit and supports distributed
coverage for both indoor and outdoor deployments, The SC-100e is designed to
support up to three remote radios using one, two or three frequencies,
enabling more efficient spectrum usage and a rapid return on investment. The
SC-100e also offers a cost-effective upgrade path to a larger capacity system
incorporating a chassis base station as the operator grows and increases its
subscriber density without requiring additional tower climbs reducing total
cost of ownership. The RedMAX 4C SC-100e is currently being trialed by Redline
customers in key vertical markets in preparation for the commercial launch in
2010.
    "We are pleased that Redline will debut its latest Mobile WiMAX
technology at 4G World," said Berge Ayvazian, Conference Co-Chair and Senior
Advisor to Yankee Group. "As one of the first companies to establish a strong
roster of WiMAX customers worldwide, Redline is sure to attract the attention
of the hundreds of operators from around the world that we will be welcoming
in Chicago this year."

    Support for high capacity carrier networks

    The SC-100e is well-suited for carrier installations, enabling easy
integration with the operators existing network infrastructure and management
systems. The base station includes an optical interface and external AC/DC
converter, for ease of installation. It's high capacity and flexible design
allows carriers to reach more subscribers with fewer base stations, supporting
a more profitable solution than with other broadband access solutions.

    Support for Smart Grid and Smart Meter networks

    Redline's RedMAX 4C solutions are designed to enable remote meter reading
as well as outage monitoring and will ultimately help operationalize a number
of additional applications, including power distribution automation, power
station/security monitoring, smart home applications, and remote work dispatch
for field staff. These applications can help utility companies to increase and
improve customer service and reduce operational and maintenance costs.

    RedMAX 4C WiMAX Platform

    The RedMAX 4C SC-100e is the latest addition to Redline's family of WiMAX
products. Operating in the 1.8 GHz, 2.5 GHz and 3.5 GHz spectrum bands, and
supporting a high concentration of subscribers, it enables operators to
realize a rapid return on their WiMAX investment. The RedMAX 4C family also
