Redline Communications and Morcom International Provide Wireless Connectivity to Arlington County

Initial Phase of CRBS Project Provides Broadband Internet Access to Students and Teachers throughout the county

TORONTO and CHANTILLY, Va. - June 8, 2021 – Redline Communications Group Inc. (“Redline Communications”) (TSX:RDL), a leading-edge provider    of industrial wireless broadband network connectivity solutions for mission-critical applications, and Morcom International, Inc., an industry leader    in the design and implementation of broadband wireless infrastructure systems, announced today the installation of Redline’s 3GPP iLTE network in Arlington    County, Virginia. This industrial-grade broadband wireless solution utilizes the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) spectrum and provides improved    broadband access, increased network stability and reliability, and minimal latency for real-time applications.

The initial goal of Arlington County was to offer remote connectivity to educators as they sought to provide broadband internet access for remote learning    to teachers and students throughout the county’s school system during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Arlington County has been impressed by Redline’s and Morcom’s responsiveness and overall support of the county to date,” states Jack Belcher, Arlington    County’s chief information officer. “The throughput capacity has been most evident in the speed with which they installed critical internet connections    for educators -- all under the CARES Act deadline.”

The CARES Act provides $31 billion in emergency funding to students, schools, institutions, and states across the U.S. and gives states $13 billion to    support school districts.

Redline and Morcom were able to complete the first phase of the project in one-third of the usual execution and deployment time. Morcom’s system design    and implementation, as well as the efficient architecture of the Redline solution enables easy expansion for the county as it brings on additional    educators and students for remote learning.

Arlington County has taken on operations and maintenance of the network itself minimizing OPEX spend on the network. This included acquiring its own private    Redline FlexCore Evolved Packet Core (EPC) server via the infrastructure arrangement.

“The term ‘mission-critical’ really begins in the classroom, whether it’s distance learning or on-site learning applications,” comments Reno Moccia, Redline    executive vice president of sales and marketing. “Redline is pleased to support Arlington County’s overall dedication to shared

broadband wireless access and to connectivity, indoors or outdoors -- and we look forward to our continued relationship.”

“Morcom is delighted to provide its expertise in Private LTE and 5G CBRS system design and implementation to solve a real-life challenge for Arlington    County students and educators,” adds Manuel Ojeda, Morcom founder and chief technology officer. “The Covid pandemic necessitated a great deal of agility    in the design and implementation of this service. Thanks to the commitment and focus of the County’s leadership, Morcom and Redline were able to execute    this program in record time and within budget.”
