Broadband for the masses

April 2005 IT infrastructure

Access requirements and Internet usage vary widely across different communities, businesses and individual households, and the industry is beginning to see more diversity emerge in the delivery of telecommunications in order to meet those needs. At the same time, the high costs associated with licensing spectrum, running fibre and building large Internet access systems has left many communities and small businesses under- or unserved because it has been unprofitable to serve those markets.

The Motorola Canopy fixed wireless broadband solution allows community service providers to deliver always-on, high-speed Internet access to municipalities and enterprises, home offices, schools, hospitals and multifamily homes as well as single family residences in rural areas and underserved markets.

With Motorola's new Canopy system - a fixed wireless broadband solution - many of the obstacles associated with deploying high-speed access technologies are overcome, making connectivity and access to information a reality for all people - whether they are in metropolitan areas or remote areas with no existing infrastructure.

It serves as a communications medium for the security industry, particularly as far as CCTV applications are concerned as remote monitoring and security for businesses is possible. Known as Canopy Vision, the solution can provide backhaul from an Internet Web cam.

Canopy's simple network design and built-in installation and deployment assistance makes it easier and quicker to get up and running than most access systems. It requires very little infrastructure and is therefore ideal for providing access to remote areas - where the terrain is often inhospitable - as well as being cost-effective.

Over-the-air Data Encryption Standard (DES) and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) capabilities ensure secure data delivery and exceptional reliability.
