Energy Backhaul



    Redline’s innovative and rugged broadband wireless systems with Virtual Fiber™ technology is the smart alternative to fiber for backhauling critical machine-to-machine and other oil field application data in areas where fiber installation costs are prohibitive or where no rights-of-way exist. With superior physical security, simple setup, rock-solid reliability, and scalable performance options, Redline`s broadband wireless systems create secure, affordable communications that can be deployed quickly to connect people, processes and technology across the digital oil field.

    Whether you need point-to-point (PTP) or point-to-multipoint (PMP) backhaul, Redline’s wireless systems, equipped with RapidLINK or MetroLINK software, deliver the longest range, the highest throughput and the lowest latency – the specifications that matter the most in backhaul solutions.

    Powerful Backhaul Performance

    Connect all your network locations and transport all your applications with fewer wireless systems with Redline’s industry leading long range, highest throughput and the lowest latency.

    Stringent Security

    Redline wireless systems are equipped with SecureLINK software deliver AES-256, ECDSA certificate authentication and FIPS 140-2 certification. Redline is the only broadband wireless company that meets the stringent security required by the federal government and the military. This level of security makes Redline's broadband wireless systems the most deployed commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) systems in the history of the U.S. Department of Defense.

    Simplified Logistics

    Network design and logistics are simplified with Redline’s software-defined wireless systems. Each system is software-keyed for point-to-point (PTP) or point-to-multipoint (PMP), high or ultra-high throughput performance, and to add specialized applications such as video surveillance to an existing system.
    Easily deploy broadband wireless where and when you need with Redline’s small size, light weight, non-line-of-sight (NLOS) operation and low power consumption. Power consumption is so low the system can be powered over the Ethernet cable (PoE) using solar, wind or battery sources, saving hundreds of dollars on installation costs.

    Reliable Communications in Tough Environments

    Provide reliable communication links over difficult topographies and in harsh industrial environments including offshore platforms and ship-to-shore operations with Redline’s innovative non-line-of-sight (NLOS) technology. Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) and multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) technology minimizes the effects of fading and reflections over water and allows the use of smaller antennas for less wind load.

    With a Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of 29 years, and a ruggedized, hardened and marine-ready design, Redline’s wireless systems provide uninterrupted M2M communications in the toughest environments.

    Redline’s advanced error correction assures reliable communications in difficult interference conditions.

    Lowest Lifetime Cost

    Redline’s powerful wireless systems, common PTP and PMP platform and high reliability combine with over-the-air (OTA) software updates to deliver the industry’s lowest lifetime cost. Purchase the bandwidth you need today and upgrade to higher bandwidth when your needs change. Realize more from your investment by adding other applications such as video surveillance with Redline’s software options. There is no need to replace hardware as your needs change.

    This is why Redline is trusted by more than 150,000 customers in 130 countries
