TORONTO – August 5, 2016 – Redline Communications (www.rdlcom.com) Group Inc. (TSX: RDL), a leading provider of wide-area wireless networks for the most challenging applications and locations, today announced that it has been selected by the turnkey system integrator Waseela, (www.waseela.com), to supply the networking equipment for a high speed wireless network that will provide connectivity between the Ministry of Education, local offices in the directorates and approximately 3,000 schools in Jordan, an Arab Kingdom located at the crossroads of Asia, Africa and Europe.
The network is part of a major program funded by the Jordanian government that includes other Information Communications Technology (ICT) systems. The Redline network, integrated and delivered by Waseela, will benefit nearly 1.5 million students and 80,000 teachers, by providing them with video conferencing capabilities and the infrastructure to support on-line exams. It will also reduce costs with an internal voice network using Voice over IP (VoIP) and by replacing the need to travel with on-line meetings. Lastly, the network will also support an electronic monitoring and protection system to monitor facilities.
Redline's RDL-3000-based network solution will bring wireless connectivity across a geographic area that spans the entire Kingdom, giving schools and local offices high-speed access to each other, to government services, and to the internet at speeds of up to 50 Mbps.
"We're pleased to be working with our partner Waseela on this important project," stated Jeff Gould, Redline's senior vice president of global sales and marketing. "Seeing our products used to advance education is especially rewarding and we're happy that our commitment to delivering the most rugged, reliable and powerful wireless products on the market has resulted in this great opportunity."
Redline provides high-quality wireless networks that operate over wide areas and in the most challenging locations. Powerful enough to support high-speed data, voice and video, Redline's rugged design ensures secure continuous operation for decades, minimizing ongoing support costs. Redline has been providing wireless network solutions since 1999 and has significant experience implementing education, government and public safety networks, most recently in Mexico.
This network order is expected to be fully delivered to Waseela by the end of the third quarter of 2016.
