Energy Private Networks



    Oil and gas companies worldwide use Redline’s innovative and rugged broadband wireless systems as the smart alternative to fiber when extending private networks to 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 communications with Virtual Fiber™ technology create secure, affordable M2M communications that can be deployed quickly to solve connectivity issues, to improve overall operational capability and to eliminate leased line costs.

    Powerful Network Performance

    Easily extend M2M or SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) networks, and reliably connect sensors, laptops, terminals and mobile users in areas where fiber installation costs are prohibitive, or where no rights-of-way exist with Redline’s industry leading long range, highest throughput and lowest latency.

    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'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 and rugged non-line-of-sight (NLOS) 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 Failure (MTBF) of 29 years, and a ruggedized, hardened and marine-ready design, Redline’s systems provides uninterrupted communications. Redline’s advanced error correction assures reliable communications in tough interference conditions.

    Reduce IT Costs

    Redline systems, equipped with RapidLINK, MetroLINK or SecureLINK software, let you create private networks to give you control over your network applications, enhance your security and eliminate leased line costs.

    Redline’s rugged systems, powerful software options and high reliability deliver the industry’s lowest lifetime cost. 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 applications and more users with fewer wireless systems and room to grow.

    Lowest Latency:
    <10 ms

    Applications work the same as they do on wired networks. Redline solutions eliminate costly and time-consuming configuration management.

    Longest Reach:
    up to 100 km (66 mi)

    You can privatize more of your network to maximize operating cost savings.

    Software Configured

    Software-keyed— 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 broadband wireless system provider certified to FIPS 140-2. Your data and your network are secure from eavesdropping and malicious attacks.

    VLAN, VPN and Multicast

    You can conserve valuable bandwidth to maximize the number of applications and users, with fewer wireless systems, thus minimizing costs.

    QoS Controls

    Quality of Service (QoS) controls let you differentiate services to meet Service Level Agreement (SLA) commitments, lower costs and increase revenues.

    Support for VLAN Tagging and Q-in-Q VLAN

    VLAN tagging and Q-in-Q VLAN let your customers extend their VLANs without having to buy and manage more routers.


    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 wireless systems allow 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.

    Simplified Logistics

    Small, lightweight, NLOS wireless systems ease installation and simplify logistics.

    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.
