   Redline and Siemens collaborate on fixed and mobile WiMAX interoperability

    --Siemens among first WiMAX equipment vendors to participate in Redline
                       Ecosystem VerificationTM program--


TORONTO, ON - August 30, 2007 - Redline Communications Inc., a leading provider
of standards-based WiMAX and broadband wireless infrastructure products, and
Siemens Home and Office Communication Devices, to conduct private testing to
verify interoperability between Redline and Siemens WiMAX Forum CertifiedTM
products. The testing is part of the Redline Ecosystem VerificationTM ('REV')
program designed to accelerate the deployment of interoperable WiMAX networks.

'The success of WiMAX depends on the ability of carriers to deliver the services
their customers demand,' said Dr. Marc Achhammer, Senior Vice President and Head
of WiMAX, Siemens Home and Office Communication Devices. 'Today's WiMAX
solutions deliver the fixed and portable capabilities as well as the range of
devices that offer a range of choices to WiMAX subscribers, and provide
operators the flexibility they need to plan and deploy a profitable network.
When complete, our interoperability testing with Redline will ensure carriers
have more choice, flexibility and capabilities for their WiMAX networks.'


The REV interoperability testing confirms that carriers can incorporate
Redline's RedMAXTM and Siemens WiMAX modem Gigaset SE471 and the outdoor modem
Siemens 2010 in their WiMAX networks. The REV program augments the testing for
WiMAX Forum Certification, verifying that carriers can achieve connectivity
between Redline infrastructure and Siemens devices in their network and manage
the devices.


'As leading WiMAX vendors, Redline and Siemens understand carriers' need for
interoperability in their networks,' said Kevin Suitor, Vice President, Business
Development and Marketing, Redline Communications Inc. 'The true growth in WiMAX
will be driven by carriers' abilities to support a greater range of personal
broadband devices on their networks. Redline and Siemens are ensuring that
carriers can realize the real benefits of WiMAX technologies.'



The Redline Ecosystem Verification Program

The Redline Ecosystem Verification program verifies connectivity and performance
between Redline's RedMAX and RedMAX 4C Mobile WiMAX products and other WiMAX

carriers around the world to support high-bandwidth voice, video and data
services. Several WiMAX equipment companies including base station, customer
premise equipment and chip manufacturers, as well as WiMAX peripherals vendors,
are now taking part in the REV program.


'Redline is working with companies across the WiMAX ecosystem to ensure carriers
can deliver the most advanced services and support the greatest range of devices
on their RedMAX network,' said Kevin Suitor, Vice President, Marketing and
Business Development, Redline Communications Inc. 'Our 'REV' program encompasses

solutions that carriers need to operate a reliable and profitable communications
network.'
