Redline Receives Two GLOBALCOMM'TM' 2006 Awards of Excellence

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - May 25, 2006) - Redline Communications, a leading provider of standards-based broadband wireless equipment, today announced it has been awarded two GLOBALCOMM™ 2006 Awards of Excellence by the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), recognizing Redline, its products, partners and customers for excellence in wireless broadband deployments.

Redline received the Excellence in Strategic Support Award for its role in working with emergency services and other organizations to establish an emergency response communications network in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The company also received the Excellence for Wireless /Mobile /Network Services award, for its role in the successful Southern Trains mobile high speed broadband wireless network in the UK.

"As the industry leader, Redline has had the privilege of working with innovative companies worldwide to plan and deploy wireless broadband networks that truly make a difference in peoples' lives," said Edgar Masri, Chief Operating Officer, Redline Communications. "It is an honor to be chosen as the recipient of two prestigious GLOBALCOMM 2006 Awards of Excellence."

Excellence in Strategic Support Award

In partnership with the Naval Post Graduate School and wireless service provider industry organization PART-15.ORG, Redline provided access and backhaul equipment to quickly establish emergency voice, video and data communications to aid authorities in their relief efforts. The Redline team arrived within a few days of Katrina and immediately went to work installing the AN-50e point-to-point, high-speed network link. Despite challenging network conditions including, non-line-of sight and over-water scenarios, the team quickly established a robust wireless network that immediately delivered critical communications.

"Redline's wireless broadband products provided mission-essential voice, video and data communications throughout the Gulf States," said Michael Anderson, Chairman of PART-15.ORG. "The use of Redline's AN-50e products and its AN-100 pre-WiMAX solutions enabled the successful provisioning of emergency services to first responders and to those most in need."

Excellence for Wireless /Mobile /Network Services Award

Nomad Digital, chosen by Southern Trains to provide the wireless connectivity and roaming services, chose Redline's AN-50e base station and subscriber backhaul products to launch the high-speed Internet service on Southern's commuter trains traveling between London and Brighton.

"The initial service proved so successful, we are now expanding the network to offer more coverage in more areas," said Nigel Wallbridge, Nomad Digital Executive Chairman. "The reliability of Redline's AN-50e backhaul equipment continues to ensure that passengers, most of whom require connection to their corporate networks, have seamless access to a high-speed internet connection throughout their journey."

Recipients of the GLOBALCOMM™ Award of Excellence are selected as the best of the best in creating the most promising new technologies and delivering the best new network services, strategic support, and customer care. The Awards of Excellence program recognizes the winning companies' contribution to advancement and excellence in the world of communications. Entries were reviewed and judged by a carefully selected team of experts and industry influencers.

"Competition for GLOBALCOMM's Awards of Excellence was fierce and the winners are among the top technology and service providers in the ICT industry," said TIA President Matt Flanigan.
