- Redline Achieves Ranking Among the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 for the Third Consecutive Year

Redline Communications Inc. ("Redline") (TSX and AIM: RDL), a leading provider of standards-based WiMAX and broadband wireless infrastructure products, today announced that it has been ranked among the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 for the third consecutive year. The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 is a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in Canada, based on the percentage of revenue growth over five years from 2003 to 2007.

"We are pleased to be recognized once again for Redline's tremendous growth, which has been fueled by our ability to deliver advanced WiMAX technologies that enable carriers to provide true broadband access in markets around the world," said Majed Sifri, President and CEO of Redline Communications. "Our growth is also attributed to the drive of each of our employees and partners, and their commitment to providing real value to our customers and shareholders through leading edge, high performance technologies and excellent services."

With more than 166 trials and deployments, Redline has established itself as a leader in the WiMAX industry, in both technology development and deployments. Redline was the first company to achieve WiMAX Forum Certification(R) for a complete WiMAX system, and is one of the first to achieve certification for its RedMAX 4C(TM) Mobile WiMAX products.

In addition, Redline offers the RedCONNEX(TM) and RedACCESS(TM) families of Broadband Wireless Infrastructure (BWI) products that provide connectivity for enterprise and industrial applications that require large amounts of bandwidth. The company's BWI products have been deployed worldwide for a range of applications including communications for oil and gas facilities, military operations, education, and backhaul for mobile networks to enable carriers to support increased customer traffic.

"Transforming technological innovation into business success is hard, and it's especially difficult to sustain such rapid revenue growth over five years. Redline Communications has rapidly built a highly successful company in the Canadian technology industry and we applaud their dedication and ability to transform their vision into reality," said John Ruffolo, National Leader, Technology, Media & Telecommunications Industry Group, Deloitte.

To qualify for the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 ranking, companies must have been in business for at least five years, have revenues of at least US$5 million, be headquartered in Canada, own proprietary technology, and conduct research and development activities in Canada. A panel of industry experts evaluates and judges companies based on four key criteria: competitive advantage; size, growth, and market attractiveness; management effectiveness and organization; and financial performance.
