years for a range of applications. The positive experience and feedback from
our customers made it an easy choice to select Redline's RedMAX products for
IDNet's WiMAX network," said Juan Carlos Pacheco, CEO of IDNet. "Even under
extreme weather conditions and in remote areas of Costa Rica, Redline's
products prove to be reliable and continue to outperform and maintain coverage
and high speed connections."
