Redline Communications has received the WiMAX Forum Certified mark for its RedMAX Subscriber Unit (SU-O). The RedMAX SU-O is the first WiMAX system based upon the Intel PRO/Wireless 5116 Broadband Interface to receive the WiMAX Forum Certified mark.
WiMAX is a standards-based wireless technology that provides high-throughput broadband connections over long distances. The first phase of WiMAX products can be used for a range of applications, including "last mile" broadband connections, cellular backhaul, and high-speed enterprise connectivity for businesses. As WiMAX evolves, it is expected to deliver both fixed and mobile wireless broadband connectivity.
With this certification Redline offers a complete WiMAX Forum Certified wireless broadband system. Redline's RedMAX Base Station (AN-100U) was one of the first three base stations to receive the WiMAX Forum Certified mark. Redline's SU-O is an integrated customer premise device that can be easily installed by the subscriber. The unit can be used for indoor or outdoor installations in most countries, enabling broadband connections to business and residential subscribers.
Redline's RedMAX family also includes an indoor subscriber unit (SU-I), which will be submitted to Cetecom this year, and the RedMAX management suite, which enables operators to easily integrate and manage the RedMAX products in their networks. The RedMAX family will also include 802.16e mobile WiMAX products, which are currently under development.
