Government Data Acquisition



    Data acquisition systems such as SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) are essential in order to improve operational efficiencies and to provide reliable delivery of municipal services such as power, water and sewage. Redline's innovative broadband wireless systems, equipped with SmartLINK software, are ideal for providing fiber-like connectivity for machine-to-machine communications in areas where fiber installation is cost prohibitive. With superior physical security, simple setup, rock-solid reliability, and scalable performance options, Redline broadband wireless systems provide the optimal solution for all your M2M connectivity needs.

    Powerful M2M Communication Performance

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

    Redline’s SmartLINK software easily meets the unique challenges of running M2M applications such as SCADA over wireless. SmartLINK’s Serial Port Polling (SPP) functionality seamlessly supports existing sensors and SCADA devices when migrating to the Internet Protocol, eliminating costly and time-consuming configuration changes.

    Reliable Communications in Tough Environments

    Uninterrupted M2M communications is assured even over difficult topographies and in tough industrial environments with Redline’s powerful non-line-of-sight (NLOS) technology and ruggedized, hardened, marine-ready design.

    Stringent Security

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

    Lowest Lifetime Costs

    Save hundreds of dollars on initial installation and future changes with Redline’s small size, light weight, 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.

    Redline’s powerful wireless system, 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 system 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-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.

    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 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.

    Esay Installation

    Small, lightweight, NLOS systems 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.
