Teledata Mozambique chooses Redline's WiMAX systems for nationwide network



    - RedMAX(TM) WiMAX products enable carrier to expand rapidly to
    meet market demand for fixed and portable broadband services -

    TORONTO, June 11 /CNW/ - Redline Communications Inc. (AIM: REDL), a
leading provider of standards-based WiMAX and broadband wireless
infrastructure products, today announced that Teledata de Mozambique, Lda,
which is jointly owned by Telecomunicacoes de Mocambique (TDM) and Portugal
Telecom, has expanded its RedMAX(TM)-based WiMAX network in four cities in
Mozambique to deliver fixed and portable broadband services to businesses and
residents.
    Teledata Mozambique installed Redline's RedMAX WiMAX Forum Certified(TM)
systems in Maputo and Beira, the country's two largest cities, and quickly
expanded its service to become one of the highest-capacity WiMAX networks in
the world. In March, the company expanded its network to bring WiMAX to the
cities of Matola and Nampula to serve enterprise customers. The next
deployment stage will include the introduction of user self-installable RedMAX
Indoor Subscriber Units that will enable customers to benefit from nomadic and
limited portable WiMAX services. Teledata Mozambique will continue to optimize
its RedMAX networks to increase the subscriber density, coverage and quality
of service.
    "The response to the initial launch of our WiMAX network was tremendous.
In just 11 months, more than 800 businesses and residents subscribed to our
WiMAX broadband services. The ease of install and capacity of the RedMAX
system enabled us to meet this demand and to generate a rapid return on
investment that is contributing to further expansion of our network," said
Luis Filipe de Lucas Mhula, Chief Executive Officer, Teledata Mozambique.
"With its products' proven performance and its leadership in the WiMAX
industry, Redline is an important technology partner to Teledata Mozambique as
we implement our WiMAX strategy."
    Teledata Mozambique offers a range of pre-paid WiMAX service packages to
suit the needs of its subscribers. With the expansion of its network, the
company will introduce new services including packages tailored for specific
markets (eg. residential, professional), high bandwidth packages of 512 KB and
1MB, and VAS (VPN) services over its RedMAX Network. Teledata Mozambique's
RedMAX network has the capacity to service thousands of subscribers in
Mozambique today.
    The planning and installation of the Teledata Mozambique network was
managed by RapidCloud Technology, a South African systems integrator
specializing in WiMAX systems. "Teledata Mozambique has very aggressive plans
for the roll out of high-capacity, large-scale networks that offer
increasingly advanced fixed broadband services," said Arnoud de Nooy, CEO of
RapidCloud. "Redline's RedMAX delivers the performance and features that
carriers benefit from current and emerging applications of WiMAX."
    "Teledata Mozambique has recognized the growing demand in its market for
premium wireless services that require true broadband connections," said Kevin
Suitor, Vice President, Marketing and Business Development, Redline
Communications Inc. "Redline is helping telecommunications providers
throughout Africa and around the world to deploy the most proven and reliable
WiMAX systems and to deliver the fixed and portable services they need to grow
their business and better serve their customers. By choosing Redline, carriers
have the opportunity to establish a first-to-market advantage and a rapid
return on their WiMAX investment."
