Westcon secure wireless deal with Motorola

June 2004 News & Events

Datatec's Westcon Group has secured a two-year deal to globally distribute Motorola's Canopy wireless broadband products and accessories that are making significant inroads in the business, education and government sectors. North America will be the initial focus market.

Motorola's Canopy product line offers a secure, reliable and flexible wireless broadband solution for enterprise, public and private networks. It also has a unique and powerful modulation scheme that significantly improves the quality of data delivery and effectively mitigates interference from other systems. Canopy equipment can be integrated with voice over Internet Protocol, video services and security surveillance.

"We are very excited that Motorola has turned to Westcon Group as a primary distributor of Canopy products, which are ideal 'last-mile' solutions for enterprise campus environments and complement many of our other convergence and Internet Protocol (IP) offerings," says Anthony Daley, senior vice president and general manager, the Americas, Westcon Group North America. "Canopy's portfolio is very appealing to those customers looking to replace their traditional local area network (LAN) infrastructures with a more flexible, IP capable network."

Because of Canopy's attributes, customers have deployed this wireless broadband system in a number of unique applications, including one California community, which is monitoring a high-traffic intersection where a high volume of car accidents occur. Cameras take realtime pictures of vehicles and drivers who violate traffic laws at the intersection and the pictures are sent via the Canopy platform to a central office where tickets are then issued to violators.
