Redline and SARCORP bring WiMAX Forum Certified™ products to Pakistan

IISLAMABAD, Pakistan and TORONTO, Canada - June 19, 2006 – Redline Communications, a leading provider of standards-based wireless broadband equipment, today announced that Dancom, a subsidiary of Dancom Malaysia serving more than 150 cities in Pakistan, has chosen Redline’s RedMAX™ products for its nationwide network in Pakistan. Dancom’s WiMAX network is the first commercial WiMAX deployment in Pakistan and is set for launch in July, 2006.
In the first wave of RedMAX™ deployments, WiMAX networks will be established in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Faisalabad and Multan. These will be followed by WiMAX networks in Quetta, Peshawar, Guiranwala, Sialkot and other regions throughout the country. Redline and its RedMAX products are represented in Pakistan by SARCORP, a leading Technology Solutions Provider.

“Dancom has established a strong reputation for carrier grade mission critical networks to serve the Public Sector, Enterprise, Banking, SME’s and SOHO sector,” said Luqman Kamil, CEO, Dancom Group. “Dancom has selected RedMAX for its country wide WiMAX network for its technological superiority and track record of successful WiMAX deployments all over the world.”

Dancom is one of the leading telecommunications providers in Pakistan, with more than 5,000 employees in 74 offices and currently operates the largest DSL network in Pakistan. With the launch of its WiMAX network, Dancom will have the most technologically advanced, scalable nationwide access network in the country, with the ability to bring the most advanced services to people and business in Pakistan.

“In the last two years our Redline product line has been established as the de facto product of choice for broadband wireless solutions. It is due to this success and proven performance that the first commercial WiMAX deployment in Pakistan will be a Redline deployment,” said Shaukat Ahmed Reshi, CEO, SARCORP. “Dancom’s selection of Redline’s RedMAX™ products is also an endorsement of Redline’s RedPATH architecture roadmap in the Pakistan Telecom market. With RedPATH we have enabled carriers in Pakistan to generate revenue from WiMAX solutions today.”

Redline’s RedMAX products have been chosen by carriers in International markets for nation-wide deployments and network trials. Among the first to install RedMAX for a nation-wide network is Hrvatske Telekomunikacije d.d (T-HT), a Croatian telecommunications company owned by Deutsche Telecom. The T-HT deployment is being managed by MICROLINK, a distributor and system integrator of wireless communication systems for digital data transmission. RedMAX is also being deployed by Integrated Telecom Company Ltd. (ITC), a licensed data service provider in Saudi Arabia as part of the (U.S.) $22.2 million first phase of its region-wide broadband network.

“Carriers that have chosen RedMAX have recognized the potential for today’s WiMAX Forum Certified™ products to deliver a first-to-market advantage for themselves, and to meet their customers’ needs today,” added Majed Sifri, President and CEO, Redline Communications Inc. “With our RedPATH architecture roadmap, our customers have the confidence that they can deploy RedMAX today to deliver fixed and nomadic broadband services, and to evolve with the WiMAX ecosystem as new products and technologies are introduced.”
