Markham, Ont.-based Redline Communications Group Inc., a provider of specialized broadband wireless offerings, has announced the opening of a new branch office and warehouse facility in Dubai, UAE as part of the company’s plan to expand its existing presence in key growth markets such as the Middle East.

The new subsidiary office is part of a broader program of investment that Redline is making in the Middle East, which also includes the hiring of additional staffing and new channel partnerships.

Redline already serves a number of key clients in the region, spanning multiple sectors including telecommunications, oil and gas, and government.

In Oman, Redline is involved in a project to replace oil company Petroleum Development Oman’s wireless field communications network.  Redline’s wireless broadband products are being used in a system that will connect an estimated 5,000 well heads, rigs, semi-mobile units, and  gathering stations, providing data gathering from drilling units, remote stations and well heads. 

Redline is also working with telecom service providers Saudi Telecom Company (STC), Zain, Etisalat, Orascom and Du, all of whom support the adoption of wireless communications to deliver connectivity and access to business, government and consumers.

“Today’s announcement signals our intention to strengthen our commitment to the Middle Eastern Region,” said Eric Melka, Redline CEO. “We see significant business opportunity in the Middle East and we are actively engaged in becoming an integral part of the community.”
