Redline's WiMAX System Helps Intel Connect 4 Schools in Malinalco, Mexico

Other Topics: Metropolitan Wi-Fi Mesh Network, Converged Wireless Technology

Intel Leverages RedMAX Products to Deliver Broadband Connectivity and Educational Services to Rural Students

Malinalco, Mexico -- Redline Communications Inc., a provider of standards-based WiMAX and broadband wireless infrastructure products, and Intel, the world leader in silicon innovation, today announced the successful deployment of Redline’s RedMAX system to establish the advanced WiMAX network in Malinalco, Mexico, located in a mountainous region seventy-seven kilometers south west of Mexico City. The network deployment is part of Intel’s World Ahead Program which improves education by empowering teachers and preparing students for success in the global economy through programs, resources, and the application of advanced broadband wireless technology.
 
 
The joint initiative also includes the Union of Entrepreneurs for Educational Technology (UNETE), a Mexican nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the quality of Mexico's public schools by providing computers and training through broadband wireless connectivity and AXTEL, Mexico’s nationwide carrier who offered logistics, implementation services and the 3.5 spectrum required for the project.

“Partnering with public and private organizations like Redline enables Intel to drive WiMAX broadband deployments that will reach cities as well as suburban and rural communities, like Malinalco, that previously were either impossible or too costly for carriers to pursue,” said Pedro Cerecer, Telecom Sector Manager, Intel Corporation. “Redline’s WiMAX system is helping our World Ahead Program to connect the children and teachers of 4 schools in Malinalco to the Internet and to the rest of the world, giving them the tools needed to improve education and prime them for success. This first phase of the Malinalco network deployment has proven to be so successful that UNETE is currently considering an expansion to include additional rural communities across Mexico.”

Redline’s high performance RedMAX AN-100U base station and SU-O outdoor broadband wireless subscriber unit combines to form the WiMAX system that delivers the reliable connectivity needed for this challenging project. The first phase of the network deployment delivers Internet connectivity to 4 rural schools under non line-of-sight (NLOS) conditions with links up to 4 kilometers distance from the base station.

The network overcomes geographically challenging conditions including higher mountain elevation and dense forest location where limited visibility and foliage demanded exceptional NLOS WiMAX performance.

“Redline is very proud to contribute the technology solution that helps bring Internet service to more than 400 students and their teachers in this rural part of Mexico. This represents the latest project in which Redline has joined forces with Intel to deliver advanced broadband services around the globe,” said Kevin Suitor, Vice President, Marketing and Business Development, Redline Communications Inc. “We commend Intel as one of the world’s foremost companies currently leveraging the benefits of WiMAX to deliver Internet connectivity and educational tools to cities, remote regions and to more people worldwide.”
