CHICAGO -- picoChip today announced that Redline Communications, a leading provider of standards-based WiMAX access and broadband wireless infrastructure products, has selected picoChip’s PC8532 modem to power its next generation RedMAX 4C™ Mobile WiMAX basestations. picoChip’s industry leading, complete and robust reference designs are the market’s only solutions to deliver true IO-MIMO with uplink CSM – a critical feature of mobile WiMAX.

The agreement gives Redline access to a software defined radio (SDR) platform with best-in-class performance/cost ratio. As an example of the flexibility, Redline has added its low-complexity maximum-likelihood receiver to the picoChip design in order to increase uplink system performance for coverage and capacity. The software-defined system supports upgrades to future standards, such as LTE, 802.16e Release 1.5 and 802.16m.

Redline sells to carrier and enterprise level organizations in both developed and key high-growth markets around the world, and has more than 166 deployments of its WiMAX Forum Certified™ systems to date. The company has previously delivered mobile broadband to UK and Silicon Valley train networks and created North America’s largest education sector wireless network.

According to Kevin Suitor, Redline’s Vice President, Marketing and Business Development, the robust, proven nature of the picoChip solution was key to its decision: “picoChip has delivered a solution that we can trust to work effectively and reliably. The ability to deliver a differentiated product which integrates our own IPR, coupled with the efficiency and scale of a commercial silicon solution, gives us the best of both worlds.”
