Redline Communications (News - Alert) recently announced that their rugged wireless infrastructure system has been selected by one of the top energy providers in the Middle East and North African region. While rugged wireless infrastructure is one of the top services Redline provides it is hardly the only service that the company provides. There is a decent chance the firm will be seeing expanded business propositions if it successfully carries out this contract.
The company has become a reliable provider of services such as a wireless transport platform. The company has also recently gained contracts with various clients in areas like providing white space for television broadcasting. This particular system uses the Redline eLTE-MT stable of wireless products. Those products are able to connect 500 different substations that can actually be located across an area that spans as much as 15,000 square miles. That span is about the same size of the Netherlands.
The network that Redline is setting up will be a machine-to-machine network that will be able to securely monitor and control machinery that is stationed at the unmanned power grid. There will also be high-definition video cameras located at each of the connected sub-stations. These cameras will allow Redline engineers to see what is going on at the stations without having to actually be there.
One of the reasons that Redline’s eLTE-MT network was selected for this contract is because the company’s network is built to stand up to different types of severe weather. This is exactly the kind of technology that needs to be used when talking about the Middle Eastern and North African regions. Temperature and weather extremes are something that this kind of tech has to deal with from one day to the next. The fact that the network is that much more advanced when it comes to monitoring and operations is an added bonus.
