Saudi Telecom Selects Redline's WiMAX

Saudi Telecom Company (STC) has chosen Redline Communications for its nation-wide WiMAX network in Saudi Arabia. STC, the country's national telecommunications operator, has deployed RedMAX products in Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam as part of the first phase of its WiMAX network deployment.

Redline said that by using TDD (time division duplexing), it can ensure a high degree of spectral efficiency even in dense urban environments. Its OFDM technology overcomes many line-of-sight barriers in urban areas including buildings, trees and other obstructions. Redline's RedMAX family have received the WiMAX Forum Certified mark for conformance to the WiMAX standards for performance and interoperability. Financial terms were not disclosed.
