 -- ORASCOM Technology Solutions completes deployment of Redline's RedCONNEXTM
products to provide wireless backhaul for expansion of ORASCOM Telecom's Djezzy
                                 GSM service --

TORONTO - July 5, 2007 - Redline Communications Inc., (AIM:REDL) a leading
provider of standards-based WiMAX and broadband wireless infrastructure
products, today announced that its RedCONNEX AN-30e and award-winning AN-50e
solutions have been deployed by ORASCOM Telecom to provide wireless backhaul for
the expansion of its Djezzy GSM mobile services in Algeria. ORASCOM Telecom is a
division of ORASCOM Telecom Holdings, one of the largest GSM carriers operating
in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia.

ORASCOM Technology Solutions (OTS) chose Redline's RedCONNEX products to enable
ORASCOM Telecom to upgrade its mobile network, which currently provides voice
services to more than eleven million customers, to manage increased traffic on
its network and support more advanced voice and data communications.

'ORASCOM Telecom has built a large and loyal customer base through its ability
to support advanced mobile voice and data services,' said Tarek Shamekh,
Transmission Senior Manager, ORASCOM Technology Solutions. 'We chose Redline's
proven RedCONNEX product family for the expansion of our wireless network for
its ability to deliver the reliable, low-latency connections required to support
the real-time applications that our customers demand.'

The first phase of the network upgrade included wireless backhaul links using
Redline's AN-30e and AN-50e non-line-of-sight, point-to-point and
point-to-multipoint backhaul. An additional 65 Redline links are being deployed
in preparation for the final phase of the project which will build out the
wireless portion of the network to reach multiple cities in Algeria in 2007. The
ORASCOM Telecom deployment was managed by OTS and OTS Informatique, its Algerian
office and a Redline Certified partner.

'Operators and service providers who use Redline's advanced wireless
technologies to expand their mobile infrastructure are able to move more quickly
to take advantage of new revenue opportunities and increase their market share,'
said Kevin Suitor, Vice President Marketing and Business Development, Redline
Communications. 'As services, content and technologies continue to converge,
more and more consumers have access to and benefit from broadband applications
offering connectivity and advanced services.'

OTS and Redline also installed RedCONNEX broadband wireless infrastructure
systems to connect each of ORASCOM Telecom's operations premises. The private
network delivers broadband speeds of up to 54 Mbps (megabits per second) between
the company's buildings to enable it to improve its communications and share and
store data efficiently.
