Toronto, ON -- Redline Communications Inc. ("Redline"), a Canadian provider of standards-based WiMAX and broadband wireless infrastructure products, and Comcentric Networking Inc.("Comcentric"), a consortium of Ontario-based networking and communications providers, today announced the successful deployment of Redline's RedMAX(TM) systems to establish advanced WiMAX networks to connect business and residential broadband subscribers in Southwestern Ontario.
Quadro Communications, one of the Comcentric owner companies, worked closely with Nexicom, a diverse communications company and leader in telecommunications in Central Ontario, to roll out Redline's WiMAX solution south of Mitchell in late 2006. After a rigorous selection process, Redline's RedMAX system was chosen to expand Comcentric's existing fixed wireless network, enabling the consortium to reach more subscribers, deliver advanced communications services, and ensure faster connection speeds for users. In the summer of 2007, the Comcentric companies plan to expand their WiMAX services to businesses and residents in the areas surrounding Stratford and Lucan.
"The wait for WiMAX is over. Redline's RedMAX solutions have enabled us to roll out wireless Internet services in selected coverage areas to meet consumer demands for true broadband speeds and support for data and voice communications," said Tim DeWeerd, General Manager of Quadro Communications and a director of Comcentric. "Rural businesses and residents in our region who previously had no access to broadband services via traditional wireline networks can now connect using the most advanced broadband wireless technologies available."
The exceptional performance, capacity, coverage and carrier-class scalability of RedMAX products are the result of Redline's extensive OFDM technology development and deployment experience. With an extended reach of more than 15 kilometers, speeds of up to 10 Mbps, advanced encryption, quality of service (QoS) controls, VLAN capabilities, and ability to support up to thousands of users on a single base station, RedMAX enables Comcentric and other carriers, mobile operators, ISPs, enterprises other network operators to support heavy data and voice traffic on their networks.
"Comcentric is choosing to leverage the benefits of Redline's RedMAX solutions to deliver the advanced communications services that bridge the connectivity gap between urban environments and the rural cities that surround them," said Kevin Suitor, Vice President, Marketing and Business Development, Redline Communications Inc. "Comcentric's considerable regional expertise and experience delivering complete end-to-end services enables them to quickly leverage Redline's solutions for rapid market growth and return on their investment. Redline's WiMAX Forum Certified RedMAX family of products gives operators like Comcentric, a proven combination of value, reliability, management and security."
