      Redline's RedMAXTM products chosen for first WiMAX network in Egypt

- EgyNet and Alkan Telecom bring WiMAX to Sharm El-Sheikh as part of Ministry of
         Communication and Information Technology (MCIT) initiatives -

TORONTO, ON - September 18, 2007 - Redline Communications Inc. (AIM: REDL), a
leading provider of standards-based WiMAX and broadband wireless infrastructure
products, today announced that its RedMAXTM family of WiMAX products have been
chosen by EgyNet for its broadband wireless network in Sharm el-Sheikh, the
Sinai peninsula's popular tourist region and world renowned scuba diving area.

EgyNet, the licensed tier one Internet Service Provider, was licensed to provide
wireless internet services to the region through the WIESC (While In Egypt Stay
Connected) program of the USAID (United States Agency for International
Development). The RedMAX network design, integration and roll-out are being
managed by Alkan Telecom, a leading system integrator and Redline's Certified
Gold Partner in Egypt. The RedMAX network is being designed to serve the more
than 3.5 million tourists that visit the region each year, as well as local area
businesses and residents. The network will be expanded to cover more areas of
the Sinai Peninsula in 2008.

'EgyNet joins the more than 125 operators around the world that have chosen
Redline's RedMAX products for its proven capacity, reliability and performance,'
said Kevin Suitor, Vice President of Business Development, Redline
Communications. 'Carriers are seizing the opportunity to establish their
broadband wireless market leadership by deploying Redline's carrier-class. With
advanced features such as our Redline Management System, rapid installation, and
the ability to support more than 250 users per base station sector controller,
RedMAX will enable EgyNet to deliver on its commitment to better serve visitors
to Sharm El-Sheikh.'

According to Ahmed Abdel-Aal, Managing Director of Alkan Telecom, 'the need for
reliable Internet access is not a luxury anymore. It has become a necessity and
adds to the value of Na'ama Bay not only as a great holiday destination but as a
destination for business conferences and events as well. The new service makes
internet available all around where customers can be connected from their hotel
rooms, at the beach, by the pool in a restaurant or Cafe.'
