||How does Canopy technology differ from other broadband services?
||Today, virtually every broadband service employs different technologies, e.g., phone
lines, coaxial cable, large-cell wireless, satellite. The Canopy system is different from all
of these solutions in that it offers affordable, high-speed Internet access to the end-user
using wireless communications in the 5GHz unlicensed U-NII band. Compared to other
wireless delivery technologies (namely MMDS), the Canopy technology uses a smaller
community of cells and involves significantly less network investment.
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!
