leading provider of WiMAX and wireless broadband solutions today announced

All figures in U.S. Dollars unless specified

Financial Highlights:

    increase over the same period in 2006
   •Increase of 35% over 2H06 revenues of $19.1M; 10th consecutive six month
    period of revenue growth
   •Record WiMAX Forum CertifiedTM RedMAXTM product revenue of $15.3 million
    or 59% of total revenue; increase of over 70% compared to 2H 2006 and 125%
    over 1H 2006

Operational Highlights

   •Launch of RedMAX 4CTM Mobile WiMAX products at industry events
   •Recognized revenue from more than 125 paid RedMAX trials and deployments
    in 65 countries, of which 38 are commercial, revenue-generating WiMAX Forum
    CertifiedTM networks
   •Increased to 7 RedMAX customers with total orders of more than $1M

• Shipped more than 50,000 RedMAX and RedCONNEX systems

• Continued growth of Redline's emerging market footprint, with
deployments in 80+ countries

• Furthered industry leadership with highest-capacity WiMAX Forum
CertifiedTM TDD-based networks in the world, supporting more than 256 users per
sector and thousands of users per base station

• Launch of Redline Ecosystem Verification ('REV') program that augments
WiMAX Forum testing and confirms interoperability of RedMAX and RedCONNEX with
other telecommunications equipment, applications and tools

'With more than $15M in RedMAX revenue for the first half of 2007, Redline is on
track to more than double our WiMAX revenues over our 2006 RedMAX sales,' said
Majed Sifri, President and Chief Executive Officer, Redline Communications Inc.
'We have achieved our targets through the rapid expansion of our customers'
WiMAX networks and the successful conversion of many of our customers' trial
systems into commercial, revenue-generating RedMAX networks.'

'We are confident that Redline will continue to achieve its revenue and product
development targets. Redline is furthering its leadership with the recent launch
of our RedMAX 4C Mobile WiMAX products, and the unsurpassed performance and
interoperability of our RedMAX family. We are well positioned to be among the
first in the world to complete WiMAX Forum Certification Wave 2 for mobile WiMAX
products, with plans to implement several field trials this year,' continued

In the period under review we achieved record revenues of $25.8 million, an
increase of 57% over the same period in 2006 and 35% over the previous fiscal
half year. Gross margins were 35% compared to 36% in 2H 2006, affected by
product transitions within the company's non-WiMAX backhaul product category.
The Company's GAAP loss per common share was ($0.13) for the period compared
with a loss per share of ($1.15) in 2H 2006.

Chief Executive Officer Review

Redline continues its leadership in the WiMAX market. We have maintained our
strong presence in high-growth International markets with new RedMAX network
deployments by carriers in the Middle East, European and African regions,
representing 36% and 10% of revenues respectively.

In addition, we have accelerated the rate of RedMAX deployments in Latin
America, Eastern Europe and Asia-Pacific markets, bringing the Americas and
Asia-Pacific regions to 42% and 12% of global revenues. Our growth in the Latin
American and Asia Pacific regions has been spurred by customers that have each
invested more than $1M in their RedMAX networks to date.

We have increased the number of RedMAX trials and deployments by more than 25%
compared to the end of 2006, with many trials converted to full network
deployments. In addition, the number of commercial, revenue-generating RedMAX
networks has increased significantly from 28 at the end of December, 2006 to 38
today, with customers now achieving positive business results from their RedMAX

Redline's continued success with RedMAX is due in part to the unsurpassed
performance of our products. Our base stations are now supporting more
subscribers than any other WiMAX Forum Certified systems based on TDD (time
division duplexing) available today. In addition, our Redline Management Suite,
which enables carriers to easily manage and expand their networks, has proven to
be a key differentiator for Redline, particularly among Tier 1 and Tier 2
operators that are planning large scale RedMAX networks.

The introduction of our Redline Ecosystem Verification ('REV') program is yet
another example of Redline's commitment to delivering the products and services
that carriers need to succeed in WiMAX. The REV program augments the WiMAX
Forum's existing testing programs, and has attracted several large WiMAX
equipment vendors including Siemens, as well as numerous applications providers,
operating systems vendors, and core systems providers from throughout the
telecommunications industry.

Finally, Redline is well positioned to build its WiMAX market position and
revenues with the introduction of our RedMAX 4CTM family of Mobile WiMAX
products. We are now working with several Tier 1 and greenfield operators on
early plans for Mobile WiMAX rollouts, and are preparing to participate in the
WiMAX Forum Certification Wave 2 for 802.16e Mobile WiMAX systems.


Redline is positioned for continued growth as more operators choose to roll out
WiMAX networks. The Company is focused on the development of its next generation
of Mobile WiMAX products and the continued enhancement of its RedMAX products.
We believe Redline is well positioned to meet our revenue guidance of between
$31 million and $33 million for the second half of 2007. We expect to achieve
growth of 55% to 65% in FY2008, with our fixed and mobile WiMAX product sales
representing a significant portion of revenues for that year.

Non-GAAP financial measures

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures, including net income
and earnings per share for the first half of fiscal 2007 excluding the impact of
stock compensation charges. Redline management believes that these non-GAAP
financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP financial measures,
provide information that is useful to investors in understanding
period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may, or
could, have a disproportionate impact on results in any particular period.
Management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enhance the
ability of investors to analyze Redline business trends and to better understand
the company's performance. In addition, Redline may utilize non-GAAP financial
measures as a guide in its forecasting, budgeting, and long-term planning
process and to measure operating performance for some management compensation
purposes. Any analysis of non-GAAP financial measures should be used only in
conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP.

This document includes statements that are, or may be deemed to be,

by the use of forward-looking terminology, including the terms 'believes',
'estimates', 'plans', 'projects', 'anticipates', 'expects', 'intends', 'may',
'will', or 'should' or, in each case, their negative or other variations or
comparable terminology. These forward-looking statements include matters that
are not historical facts. They appear in a number of places throughout this
document and include statements regarding the Directors' current intentions,
beliefs or expectations concerning, among other things, the Company's results of
operations, financial condition, liquidity, prospects, growth, strategies and
the broadband industry.

By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because
they relate to future events and circumstances. Actual results and developments
could differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking
statements. Please see the factors discussed in Part II of this document in this
regard, in particular those relating to the legal and regulatory risks
associated with the BWA market.

Forward-looking statements may and often do differ materially from actual
results. Any forward-looking statements in this document are based on certain
factors and assumptions, including the Directors' current view with respect to
future events and are subject to risks relating to future events and other
risks, uncertainties and assumptions relating to the Company's operations,
results of operations, growth strategy and liquidity. While the Directors
consider these assumptions to be reasonable based on information currently
available, they may prove to be incorrect. Prospective investors should
specifically consider the factors identified in this document that could cause
actual results to differ before making an investment decision. Save as required
by law or by the AIM Rules, the Company undertakes no obligation publicly to
release the results of any revisions to any forward-looking statements in this
