Redline Ecosystem Verification program accelerates WiMAX

    -- 'REV' advances interoperability of Redline's RedMAX 4C(TM),
    RedMAX(TM), and RedCONNEX(TM) with telecommunications product and
    application providers --

    TORONTO, Aug. 21 /CNW/ - Redline Communications Inc., (AIM:REDL) a
leading provider of standards-based WiMAX and broadband wireless
infrastructure products, today announced the official launch of its Redline
Ecosystem Verification ('REV') program. The REV program is Redline's
interoperability testing program that will accelerate interoperability testing
between Redline's RedMAX 4C(TM) Mobile WiMAX, RedMAX(TM) Fixed WiMAX, and
RedCONNEX(TM) broadband wireless infrastructure products with devices and
applications being developed by other companies in the WiMAX and
telecommunications ecosystems.
    "As the leader in WiMAX technologies and deployments Redline has seen
first-hand the demand by operators for interoperability between WiMAX
products," said Kevin Suitor, Vice President, Marketing and Business
Development, Redline Communications Inc. "To meet carriers' demands, Redline
is taking interoperability testing beyond the level required for WiMAX Forum
certification. REV ensures that networks incorporating Redline products with
REV-certified products from other vendors will deliver the capacity, features
and functions that operators need for a strong business case."
    Several WiMAX equipment companies including base station, customer
premise equipment and chip manufacturers, as well as WiMAX peripherals
vendors, are now taking part in the REV program. The program was designed to
augment the testing requirements for WiMAX Forum Certification(TM), verifying
the level of connectivity and performance that carriers can achieve between
Redline's RedMAX and RedMAX 4C mobile WiMAX products and other WiMAX devices
in their network, and accelerating the deployment of operators' interoperable
networks. The program also includes Redline's RedCONNEX family, which is used
by carriers around the world to support high-bandwidth voice, video and data
    "The WiMAX trial period is over. Carriers are now deploying large-scale
WiMAX networks and are demanding that equipment providers deliver on the WiMAX
promise of worldwide interoperability," said Monica Paolini, Principal, Senza
Fili Consulting, a leading analyst and consulting firm specializing in
wireless data technologies and services. "The true growth in WiMAX will be
driven by carriers' abilities to support a wide range of personal broadband
devices on their networks. Redline's REV program will help carriers to realize
the benefits of WiMAX technologies."
    "Our 'Redline Ecosystem Verification' program encompasses the devices,
applications and core network providers that are enabling the complete
ecosystem that carriers need to operate a reliable and profitable
communications network," added Suitor.
