Redline Launches World's First Frequency Versatile Wireless Broadband Network Solution

(Canada Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Universal Wireless Transport™ platform powers secure high-speed wide area networks on any frequency between 100 MHz and 6 GHz TORONTO, May 20, 2013 /CNW/ - Redline Communications (www.rdlcom.com Group Inc. TSX: RDL), a leading provider of broadband wireless solutions for industrial and telecom applications, today unveiled its Universal Wireless Transport™ platform (UWT™), the industry's first and only wireless broadband network solution to operate on any frequency between 100 MHz and 6 GHz - in licensed, reserved and unlicensed bands. This frequency range encompasses virtually all wireless broadband applications - effectively delivering broadband in any available spectrum. Redline technology already produces secure wireless networks that have the fastest speeds over the longest distances with the lowest latency, and construction that delivers rugged reliability in harsh remote environments. With the integration of UWT, Redline now brings its customers unparalleled flexibility and the fastest time to deployment for private wide area networks.

"Networks are literally the backbone of industry and commerce, used to increase the velocity of operations, guarantee workplace safety and save lives," said Bojan Subasic, vice president of R&D for Redline Communications. "Redline believes that network architects should never sacrifice perfect for practical when designing mission critical networks, and our new wireless network platform means that all networks can be wireless, even with the most challenging circumstances.  Simply put, the performance, reliability and flexibility of the Universal Wireless Transport platform means this new equipment will be the last network infrastructure product Redline customers will ever need to buy." For multinational companies, such as oil and gas producers where the use of different frequencies may also be required within a single oil field, Redline can now support all their international locations and frequency needs using just one product.   Not only does the platform operate on key bands including 450 MHz, 600 MHz, 900 MHz, 2.5 GHz, 3.5 GHz, 4.4 GHz and 4.9 GHz and 5.8 GHz, it can also operate on any frequency between, allowing customers to use any and all available spectrum. The UWT gives Redline customers a single secure platform from which to power the broadest range of IP applications on a single network - from "heavy" applications requiring data speeds of 100 Mbps or greater, to lighter applications such as small packet VoIP and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, without making any design sacrifices.

Redline's common platform approach simplifies network design and reduces the time and cost of training, service and maintenance. Central to the new UWT platform are software adaptable radios that can be managed, configured and upgraded over the air. UWT can cover the widest range of distances with true broadband speeds and unmatched security.  The platform's software adaptable radios can be remotely configured for different frequency ranges, as well as point-to-point or point-to-multipoint configurations, capacity and now frequency.

"Software-defined networking (SDN) is not only lending much-needed flexibility to wireless networks in a variety of ways - it's also changing the economics of wireless network infrastructure," said Ed Gubbins, senior analyst for mobile access infrastructure at Current Analysis. "Redline's embrace of the technology allows a broad range of industries tap into the value of SDN that is also being unlocked by some of the world's leading mobile operators." "Available spectrum is scarce, and specific frequencies are not consistently available across the globe," said Subasic. "While using a single frequency everywhere around the world would be easier for global enterprises, network planners must also account for different topographies, scarce availability of unlicensed spectrum, and local regulations governing the use of licensed and unlicensed spectrum.  Inevitably the best network architecture will use a combination of frequencies, but until now no one vendor could offer a single platform delivering the best performance, and consistent management across a wide range of spectrum." UWT is a ground-up reengineering of Redline's award-winning backhaul networking technologies designed with fewer components to reduce power consumption, making it suitable for remote locations where it can be powered using alternative energy sources such as solar.  With unparalleled flexibility, scalability and reliability, UWT is fully backward compatible with all of Redline's network systems deployed around the globe by telecom service providers, oil and gas producers, public safety agencies, governments and other private networks.

UWT is a finalist in CTIA's 2013 E-Tech Awards competition.  Attendees of CTIA 2013 can learn more about UWT and Redline's portfolio of wireless broadband products in booth #4946.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.
