Redline is sending video from base stations in downtown Chicago to client devices on the show floor at the McCormick Place convention center, said Keith Doucet, vice president of marketing and product line management at Redline. One of the towers is about 4.5 miles from the convention center, and the other is about 1.5 miles away. Both connections are running at about 25Mbit/sec., Doucet said. An indoor demonstration on the show floor is achieving about the same speed, he said. Commercial WiMax services will most likely be shared among many users who will each have less than 25Mbit/sec., he added.
