Redline Communications, a global provider of wide-area wireless networks for the most challenging applications and locations, has been awarded a USD$1.2M Internet of Things (IoT) project utilizing its new standards-based LTE solution to provide a high-performance mobile network that will support video, telematics and mobile communications.

Redline was selected to build this private network, operating in harsh conditions, to provide coverage for 125Km of private roads, mining facilities and employee housing.

This solution provides coverage to ensure employee safety and to provide enhanced visibility of vehicle performance and location. The deployment will enable in-vehicle video, vehicle telematics, and 2-way communications all powered by Redline’s iLTE™ line of eNodeB and EPC core software.

Redline was chosen for this project based on its ability to provide a complete turn-key solution including end user equipment, eNodeB’s, microwave backhaul, EPC core, design, implementation and support services.

Redline’s LTE IoT solution offers maximum coverage and superior scalability with the benefit of being a standards-based technology offering mobility and high-performance communications. Built on a foundation of high-security and reliability, Redline’s easy to deploy products are compact, boast low-power consumption and are designed for harsh environments, making them a perfect fit for customers across industries wishing to deploy private LTE networks.

“Redline was selected for this mining project because of our ability to help convert the customer’s forward thinking IoT strategy into reality. Our simple to deploy LTE solution will enhance the productivity and safety of their operations,” said Redline CEO, Robert Williams. “Last year we initiated a program of field trials of our LTE offering to demonstrate its effectiveness in meeting the demands of robust LTE solutions in a variety of different applications. These trials are proving successful and we are seeing increasing interest from new customers.”

Redline expects the majority of this project to roll out in the second half of this year.
