-- Redline the Solution of Choice for Non-Line-of-Site Installations throughout the Island --
TORONTO, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ - Redline Communications Group Inc. ("Redline") (TSX: RDL), a leading global provider of carrier-grade secure wireless broadband products, today announced that Antigua Computer Technologies Networks has completed the installation of a Redline-based fixed WiMAX network island-wide to bring last-mile Internet connectivity to remote and challenging bay station locations.
With 72 base station sectors, installed in 33 tower locations, and more than 1.3 Gigabits of data capacity, the ACT WiMAX network is one of the largest in the Caribbean. The ACT network offers a low-cost user-installed indoor radio for residential subscribers, and a wall-mounted outdoor antenna for business subscribers providing connectivity service of up to 20 Mbps. ACT has also connected local schools, libraries, and other public buildings to their wireless network as a service to the community.
The project was implemented and managed by Future Technologies, a Redline Certified Partner. Future Technologies performed the network planning, staging, and project management for the duration of the roll-out.
"Our business goal was to offer reliable broadband wireless, but we also had a strong social agenda to bring connectivity to schools and other public offices which require temendous amouts of data throughput," said Salomon Doumith - CEO - ACT Networks. "Redline's high capacity base stations gave us enough capacity to service our customers and offer broadband to the schools."
"We faced some unique challenges when it came to extending the ACT network throughout the island," said Nino Canu, CEO of Future Technologies. "Because Antigua was formed by volcanic activity, it is very hilly and uneven. This topology is very difficult for any wireless technolgy, but even more when the goal is affordable high-speed broadband Internet services. Redline delivered what was needed - high-performance, cost-effective and long-range connectivity to these hard-to-reach locations."
"As they look ahead to growing their business over the long-term, network operators and carriers need versatile, reliable solutions that will perform under the most remote and challenging environments," said Lynda Partner, Redline's VP Marketing. "We're delighted that ACT has leveraged our broadband wireless products to interconnect its non-line-of-site networks and provide high-performance access at a very competitive price. We are also proud to have skilled partners like Future Technologies supporting us in these challenging projects."
