  Personal selects Redline's RedMAXTM for its Hipuu! WiMAX network in Paraguay

-- Brightstar, Cisco and Softnet team up with Redline to deploy Paraguay's first
WiMAX Forum CertifiedTM network --


TORONTO, LONDON and PARAGUAY- May 30 2007 - Redline Communications Inc., (AIM:
REDL) a leading provider of standards-based WiMAX and broadband wireless
infrastructure products, today announced that Personal, a leading Paraguayan
mobile and WiMAX carrier and subsidiary of Telecom Argentina, has chosen
Redline's RedMAXTM family of products to power its Hipuu! WiMAX service in
Paraguay. With Redline's WiMAX Forum Certified RedMAX products installed,
Personal can now deliver a true WiMAX experience to thousands of businesses and
residents in Paraguay's capital city.


'To meet the expectations of our Hipuu! Customers, we required a true certified
WiMAX solution that has a proven track record in delivering voice, video and
data communications,' said Mr. Marcelo Prudencio, General Manager, Personal.
'Redline is recognized worldwide as a leading WiMAX vendor with the experience
and WiMAX Forum Certified systems that would ensure a reliable, scalable,
carrier-class WiMAX network that supports more than 250 users per base station,
which we believe is more than any other WiMAX solution.'


Personal is installing Redline's proven high-capacity RedMAX system, which
includes the RedMAX Outdoor subscriber Unit (SU-O), because it can be quickly
and easily installed at the customer premise. This ease of installation,
combined with the network manageability and provisioning supported by the
Redline Management Suite has enabled Personal to rapidly deploy and expand its
Broadband network, with the ability to sustain thousands of customers per base
station. In addition, the RedMAX system has enabled Personal to extend its
service area to reach additional customers, with links of more than 30 km (18
miles). Redline's WiMAX solution also supports the delivery of guaranteed
service levels agreements (SLA) for business and residential users, allowing
Personal to tailor its service packages to suit its various markets. The
Personal WiMAX network has been deployed by a collaborative deployment team that
included Personal, Brightstar, a Redline Value Added Distributor and world
leading wireless distribution and supply chain solutions provider, Cisco,
Softnet Logicalis and Redline.


Personal has completed the roll out of the RedMAX network in Asuncion and Great
Asuncion and is continuing its network expansion to enable the Company to offer
a nation wide package of services for corporate and residential customers.
Personal's initial RedMAX deployment phase generated a rapid return on its WiMAX
investment, enabling it to quickly initiate network planning to expand its
services more to more customers in additional regions. Personal expects to
triple the number of subscribers on its network by year end, resulting in one of
the world's largest WiMAX Forum Certified networks to date.


Among the many objectives of Personal's WiMAX network, is its goal to increase
the availability of Internet access for the Paraguayan population, especially
its youth. Mr. Prudencio continues, 'Along with the development of our Personal
Hipuu! Service, the Company is carrying on a Social Responsibility Project which
includes the donation of fully equipped computer laboratories, including
personal computers, printers and free Internet access to those schools operating
in low income areas of Asuncion and the rest of the country.'


'As carriers execute on the demand of high-bandwidth services, they have a
crucial need for high capacity, high performance systems that enable them to
support more users via the most cost effective means available, and WiMAX
provides an optimized path to accomplish this,' said John Bonadurer III, General
Manager WiMAX, Brightstar. 'Redline's RedMAX solution has been proven to support
high concentrations of users on a single sector, providing carriers with an
exciting return on investment.'


Softnet Logicalis, Redline's Silver Certified Partner, has played a critical
role in the WiMAX network planning and deployment phases and will continue to
work with Personal to ensure maximum network performance. The integration of
Cisco's core switching equipment will enable Personal to more easily manage all
data traffic over Personal's entire network infrastructure.


'Redline consistently delivers industry-leading broadband wireless products that
establish the most advanced carrier-class wireless networks,' said Kevin Suitor,
Vice President, Marketing and Business Development, Redline Communications. 'As
the most widely-deployed WiMAX Forum CertifiedTM system, RedMAX enables the
performance and features carriers need to deliver increasingly advanced
communications services and scalability to expand their subscriber base over
time.'
