||What is a Canopy system?
||A Canopy system is based on wireless broadband technology that provides for
high-speed Internet access. The Canopy system was designed to provide cost-effective,
"last mile" high-speed data access for residential and business customers who previously
were underserved or lived in locations where infrastructure is non-existent. Canopy
system is comprised of three major components: Access Point (AP), Subscriber Module
(SM) and the Backhaul Unit). A Canopy system utilizes the unlicensed UNII bands (5.25
- 5.35GHz or 5.725 - 5.825GHz).
Most wireless products on the market today use 802.11x standard to pass data back and forth over the air. This is done straight forward from the spec sheet. The spec sheet states how the data will be sent, how it will connect, how it will communicate. It is like an instruction manual for a hacker on how to break into your system. Canopy was develop from the 802.11x standard but only as a reference. There are no tools setting around for the hacker to use. Because of the separation of the standard it provides little means for a hacker to get to your data.
DES - Data Encryption Standard. Canopy utilizes DES to encrypt all over-the-air data on the fly. That means that each packet of your precious data sent and received by the Canopy antenna is DES encrypted. Now that's security!
FSK - Phase Shift Keying
Canopy FSK - "Phase Shift Keying" to guard against inference and noise. This also means as every packet is transmitted and received it's data phase is being shifted. This not only makes it harder to track and identify it also provide a better quality of signal.
The only way to be more secure is not to get on the internet!
