TORONTO, Nov. 4, 2014 /CNW/ - Redline Communications (www.rdlcom.com) Group Inc. (TSX: RDL), a leading provider of mission-critical wireless networks for the oil and gas industry, today announced that it has received a $2.7 million contract to provide the first phase of a high speed wireless network for a local Argentina subsidiary of a "super-major" energy company.

- collaboration between remote teams at drilling sites and elsewhere in the world to improve productivity and problem solving;
- access by field workers to office documents, corporate systems and the internet for increased productivity and well-being;
- operational video surveillance for visibility into remote operations, improving safety.
"Redline specializes in wireless systems for challenging oilfield environments, and this customer is definitely leading-edge and committed to using the most advanced technology to improve process efficiency, security and worker safety," noted Louis Lambert, vice president of oil and gas sales for Redline. "We have focused on understanding their business needs as well as their networking needs, which allows us to deliver additional value as their digital oilfield partner."
With the demand for bandwidth from their business units growing exponentially and a large area of inhospitable terrain to cover, this client required a network that was both powerful and rugged, and had the capacity to grow with their business. Redline's powerful wide-area wireless networks are purpose-built for the most challenging locations and mission-critical applications and installed as an end-to-end operating network specifically tuned for this customer's unique requirements, delivering over 100 mbps of reliable, low-latency connectivity over long distances.
