FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Redline and Future Technologies Partner to Deliver Private LTE Networks
First pilot initiated with military customer
TORONTO , June 22, 2017 /CNW/ - Redline Communications (www.rdlcom.com) Group Inc. (RDL.TO), a leading provider of wide-area wireless networks for the most challenging applications and locations, today announces its partnership with Future Technologies Ventures, LLC (Future Technologies) to offer Future Technologies' military customers Redline's mobile LTE product line for tactical rapid deployment purposes. Learn more about Redline's private LTE network products.
"Through consultation with our existing military customers who currently operate their own private networks, it became clear they required a network evolution that is standards based and LTE was the best long-term path forward. We are seeing this convergence of thought with all of our customers across all vertical markets," said Peter Cappiello , Future Technologies CEO.
"With this in mind, we wanted to use the best technology on the market. Redline became the obvious choice for us after we tested various vendors unsuccessfully. Redline clearly demonstrated they have the best-in-class technology on the market and the skills required to ensure the solution truly works. We were also impressed with Redline's strong capability to deploy a full mobility LTE network including design, RF planning, deployment and commissioning. As a systems integrator, being able to leverage Redline's service expertise enhances the overall quality of service we deliver to our customers," Mr. Cappiello said.
Through this partnership, Future Technologies and Redline are jointly executing their first commercial LTE pilot for a military customer for use in disaster recovery, first responder and general tactical deployments. Redline's technology is ideally suited for the deployable LTE market. The form factor of the EPC core and eNodeB makes it perfectly suited for deployable situations such as mobile military units, providing coverage for temporary or permanent camps, and many other environments where there is no fixed infrastructure or where fast deployment coverage is required.
In addition to this current pilot, Future Technologies has positioned Redline's LTE product across their private network customer base, across several vertical markets including rail, first responders, military, utility, maritime and oil and gas.
"Redline is very pleased to work with Future Technologies as one of our Certified Partners as we grow our channel and focus on our LTE deployments," says Redline CEO, Rob Williams . "Redline has found that LTE solutions require system integrators with advanced LTE expertise. We are delighted to have a world class partner in Future Technologies with the experience and capability to deliver full turn-key private LTE solutions."

Growing capacity demands are universal. There is no one end user that can honestly say their bandwidth needs are not increasing. This leaves integrators like ourselves looking for products that can solve capacity needs today but also plan for the Future. With Cambium’s Medusa you may just have that radio. Boasting incredible spectral efficiency which allows it to reach over 400Mbps in a 20Mhz channel size is really ground-breaking stuff. Most RF environments make it difficult to find 40MHz of clean spectrum, let alone 80MHz. So being able to get over 400 Mbps in a 20 MHz channel is crucial for most customers who see the same RF challenges.
Future proof?... Good question. What happens when you need even more capacity?.... Even better question.
An important aspect of radios that are future proof is the ability to software upgrade to meet changing requirements. Ripping out old hardware for new is not cost efficient and takes a lot of time and planning. So make sure to choose equipment that has the ability to software upgrade as well as update firmware remotely. The later makes it easier for manufacturers to push firmware revisions to their customers.
So what’s in the works for Cambium’s Medusa? We suppose they will release a firmware later this year for larger channel sizes. Maybe somewhere in the 25, 30, even 45 range but we shall see... Cliffhanger.

Knoxville Utilities Board Selects DragonWave Harmony Enhanced MC for Smart Grid Modernization Project
DragonWave Inc. announced the selection of the Harmony Enhanced MC backhaul solution by Knoxville Utilities Board (KUB). KUB is an independent agency of the City of Knoxville that provides electricity, gas, water and water waste services to customers in Knoxville and parts of seven surrounding counties (Over 750 square miles). This deployment will increase available bandwidth, reduce overall network operation and maintenance (O&M) costs and improve reliability of the overall field network.
DragonWave's Harmony Enhanced MC will extend KUB's existing fiber/wireline facilities to create a hybrid wireless and wireline network. KUB will use Harmony Enhanced MC to create fiber type connections via wireless, through the radios ability to support multiple channels with high modulation (up to 2048 QAM) in one small form factor.
Peter Cappiello, Future Technologies, President and CEO, "By selecting Dragonwave's Harmony Enhanced MC for our bid, we were able to reach and exceed the capacity and reliability values required using 3' antennas instead of comparison examples that would have required 6' antennas. Each 1' of antenna reduction decreased the potential for new tower requirements (CAPEX), as well as the re-occurring costs associated with larger dishes (OPEX), which made the decision simple for KUB."

Congrats to Jake on being selected employee of the 3rd quarter.
There’s a Jet for everyone
As capacity demands are ever increasing in Enterprise Networks there is still need for residential multipoint products with lower total cost of ownership. In this case one shoe doesn’t fit all and this is why Radwin has opened up the portfolio to incorporate products that fit each specific business case.
Residential networks are Jumping on JET AIR
With the release of Radwin’s new JET AIR base stations and subscribers residential service providers are jumping on board in droves. The JET AIR utilizes the same beamforming antennas that allows for increased interference mitigation that you have come to expect from a Radwin base station. By employing the standard residential market Best Effort subscriber service levels Radwin was able to keep the total hardware costs down on the JET AIR making it a perfect for these networks.

4. Pre-Configuration of radios
5. Forward/Reverse Logistics
How do you build the right wireless engine to run your network to meet the undefined needs of tomorrow? In lieu of fiber, how do you connect the internet of things, the future “G’s”, Cars and everything else everyone is talking about.
Knowing what wireless engines are available, what RPM’s (MB/GB’s) are possible and understanding how these engines work is of course important. The real knowledge is knowing how to assemble these engines in a way that they meet the current needs of today with enough horse power to upgrade in the future without physical improvements via software upgrades. No truck roll, no new hardware required.
This does not mean over invest in the planning, the hardware or the install. This just means you need to find a good mechanic (integrator) to help you build the right engine.
Future Tech would like to welcome Tom Dupree to our team as Director of Sales - Private Networks Market.
Tom has worked in the private network market with a focus on Rail and Utilities customers for over 25+ years working for such companies as Motorola.
Through Tom’s experience, we feel fortunate to have such a special SIV to add to our sales team.
WELCOME ABOARD TOM!
