successful first phase of its Hipuu! WiMAX service network rollout. Personal
will install additional RedMAX products to expand its network to reach 10,000
subscribers in 2007.
    Redline's WiMAX Forum Certified(TM) products were selected for the Hipuu!

result in one of the world's largest and highest-density WiMAX Forum

interoperability has made it a clear leader in the WiMAX industry and provides
the assurance that we will be able to continue to introduce new services and
devices as they are available."
    In the first phase of its Hipuu! WiMAX network installation, Personal
established a significant industry benchmark, with the deployment of
highest-capacity WiMAX Forum Certified base station, which currently supports
more than 250 users per sector controller. This high-density network was
enabled by the ease of installation of the RedMAX products, as well as the
network manageability and provisioning supported by the Redline Management

expansion of its WiMAX network with its criteria for professionally certified
and interoperable solutions," said Kevin Suitor, Vice President, Marketing and
Business Development, Redline Communications Inc. "To ensure carriers' long
