Redline is offering visitors to the event the opportunity to trial its RedMAX products, which incorporate the Intel PRO/Wireless 5116 WiMAX modem silicon, and will be among the world's first WiMAX products deployed for large-scale telecommunications networks.

"We are very pleased to be working with Intel and TANDBERG in Hong Kong to bring this WiMAX demonstration to the 3G World Congress," said Keith Doucet, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management, Redline Communications. "Visitors from Asia Pacific will have the opportunity to experience first-hand the capabilities of WiMAX technologies to bring broadband wireless communications to more people and to support more advanced applications than other wireless technologies."

The demonstration will take place at the Redline booth in the WiMAX village and the Intel and TANDBERG booths at the event. The live over-the-air WiMAX link connecting the Redline and Intel booths will support online gaming and VoIP between the RedMAX base station and CPE (customer premise equipment). A wireless link will also be established between the Redline and TANDBERG booths and will feature voice and video conferencing applications.

"The WiMAX ecosystem is making positive headway to offer countries around the world the ability to connect the next billion people worldwide," said Lonnie McAlister, Product Line Manager, Wireless Networking Group of Intel Communications Group in Asia Pacific.
