TORONTO––January 10, 2005—Redline Communications, a leading provider of standards-based broadband wireless equipment, announced today that it is unveiling its WiMAX ready product at the WCA International Symposium and Business Expo (Booth #306) taking place January 12 – 14 at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, Calif. On display will be Redline’s universal platform, the AN-100U, a fully compliant IEEE 802.16-2004 platform. The AN-100U, which functions as a base station and subscriber station, advances Redline’s readiness for WiMAX™ interoperability testing and commercial viability.
As a principal member of the WiMAX Forum™, Redline plays an active role in the technical development of IEEE 802.16 standards. The company is now actively participating in the development of the 802.16e standard for mobile applications.
“From our earliest days of product development, Redline has been committed to delivering solutions that support the standardization needs of the industry,” said Keith Doucet, VP of Marketing and Product Management. “We led the market with our introduction of an 802.16a compliant product, the AN-100, which today is being used worldwide by Tier 1 operators primarily for backhauling wireless access networks. The AN-100 has demonstrated the viability of the standards based technology for backhaul applications, while the AN-100U will serve the access market, representing Redline’s foyer into the residential space”.
Redline achieved a world first when it introduced the AN-100 802.16a compliant solution to the industry early 2004. This product received the Telecommunication Industry Association’s (TIA) SUPERQuest award in the Backbone/Edge Networking Equipment category.
Roger B. Marks, Chairman of IEEE 802.16, says the evolution of 802.16 has been instrumental in accelerating broadband wireless deployment. “Interest in IEEE Standard 802.16 continues to explode around the world, with hundreds of engineers from global industry cooperating on its evolution. As companies introduce new products based upon on that foundation, the synergies created by the standard are set to bring about a rapid evolution of broadband wireless access as an essential communications tool.”
Doucet adds, “We are now ready with 802.16-2004 and will once again be counted among the first to move forward on this important initiative that will see true interoperability become a reality for the industry.”
“We are pleased that Redline has chosen the WCA International Symposium as its venue of choice to preview its new 802.16-2004 compliant broadband wireless solution,” said Andrew Kreig, President of Wireless Communications Association International. “The achievements to date from the broadband wireless community are commendable as they advance their solutions towards WiMAX interoperability. The dedication from companies like Redline will ensure that the promise of WiMAX will soon become a reality.”
On January 12 at 2:15pm PST, Keith Doucet will be presenting at the WCA Symposium on the topic of “Wireless Broadband Access to Rural and Remote Areas”. This presentation will include an overview of the Keewatin-Patricia District School Board project – one of the largest and most ambitious broadband wireless deployments in education of its kind. The Redline / Keewatin-Patricia project is the recipient of WCA’s annual Wemmie Award for 2005, recognized for providing underserved communities with advanced technology to support educational opportunities.
