New Indoor Fixed, Nomadic and Mobile Devices to Join Redline's RedMAX Family of WiMAX Forum Certified(TM) Products
CHICAGO, IL--Jun 5, 2006 -- GLOBALCOMM -- SEQUANS Communications and Redline Communications today announced that Redline will incorporate Sequans' system-on-chip (SoC) into its WiMAX CPE and will collaborate with Sequans' ODM partners to manufacture low-cost fixed, portable and mobile WiMAX devices.
In addition, the two companies will perform interoperability tests and jointly participate in WiMAX plugfest events. The companies will submit products for the first wave of mobile WiMAX certification, scheduled for the end of this year.
"We were impressed by Sequans' performance and execution on its 802.16-2004 program and believe that the Sequans team is executing equally well on its 802.16e-2005 solution," said Edgar Masri, Chief Operating Officer, Redline Communications Inc. " The integration of WiMAX technologies based on the 802.16e-2005 standards is an important component of Redline's RedPATH architecture roadmap, which enables operators to benefit from today's WiMAX solutions and evolve with the ecosystem."
"Redline has been at the forefront of the WiMAX industry, being the first to market with 802.16 WIMAX-certified products and helping ODMs immensely in bringing products to market," said Bernard Aboussouan, VP, marketing and business development, Sequans. "We are extremely pleased to partner with such a leader and to help them get their WIMAX products to market fast."
