Energy Data Acquisition



    Machine-to-Machine or data acquisition systems such as SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) are essential to reap the most benefit from your oil refineries and production facilities. Redline's innovative and rugged broadband wireless systems equipped with SmartLINK software are ideal for providing fiber-like connectivity for M2M applications in areas where fiber installation is cost prohibitive. With superior physical security, simple setup, rock-solid reliability, and scalable performance options, Redline provides the optimal solution for all your M2M communication needs.

    Powerful Network Performance

    Easily extend M2M communications across all your facilities and connect more Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) and Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) with fewer wireless systems than the competition with Redline’s industry leading long range, highest throughput and lowest latency.

    Seamless Operation

    Redline’s SmartLINK software easily meets the unique challenges of transmitting critical M2M data over wireless networks. SmartLINK provides Serial Port Polling (SPP) functionality to seamlessly support existing sensors and SCADA devices when moving to an Internet protocol network, eliminating costly and time-consuming configuration changes.

    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 rugged non-line-of-sight (NLOS) wireless systems. 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 innovative wireless systems provide uninterrupted communications. Reliable communications in tough interference conditions is assured with Redline’s advanced error correction.

    Stringent Security

    Redline wireless systems 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 systems the most deployed commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) broadband systems in the history of the U.S. Department of Defense.

    Lowest Lifetime Costs

    Redline’s small size, light weight and NLOS operation simplifies logistics and installation. Low power consumption allows the systems to be powered through the Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) interface cable. They can also easily be powered by solar, wind or battery sources in remote locations, easing deployment and saving hundreds of dollars on installation costs.

    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.

  • Feature


    Highest Throughput:
    up to 100 Mbps

    Redline delivers up to two times more throughput than the competition, allowing you to support more RTUs and Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) per wireless systems and room to grow.

    Lowest Latency:
    <10 ms

    Critical control data is not delayed. Applications work the same as they do on wired networks. Redline solutions eliminate costly and time-consuming configuration changes.

    Longest Reach:
    up to 100 km (66 mi)

    You can cost effectively extend coverage across all your facilities.

    Software Configured

    Software configured common wireless platform — one platform for PTP and PMP applications — future upgrades over-the-air (OTA) to all portions of your network without costly hardware replacement.

    Stringent Security

    Redline is the only wireless system provider certified to FIPS 140-2. Your data and your network are secure from eavesdropping and malicious attacks.

    Serial Port Polling (SPP)

    SPP allows existing SCADA and Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) applications to run natively across a wireless network. There is no need for configuration changes or additional wireless links to ensure your applications work. Redline is the only broadband wireless vendor with SPP.


    NLOS wireless technology eases deployment, reducing the need for high tower locations.

    Low Power Design

    Save hundreds of dollars on installation costs with Redline’s low power consumption, which enables powering over the Ethernet cables (PoE) by such sources as Photo Voltaic Solar power.


    Redline's IP67-certified equipment allow wireless installation in the toughest environments.

    Field-Proven Reliability

    A proven field MTBF of 29 years and a documented failure rate of 0.3% ensure maximum uptime.

    Esay Installation

    Small, lightweight, NLOS technology with low power requirments ease installation.

    Software Options

    Redline’s software supports other service, such as video surveillance and data acquisition (SCADA or AMI), without costly hardware replacement.

    Speed Keys

    Pay only for the bandwidth you need today and purchase more in the future without replacing hardware.
