Q What about rain? Doesn’t that affect the reliability of a fixed wireless connection?
A In most cases, people asking this question are somewhat familiar with millimeter-wave microwave radio, used at 23, 28 or 38 GHz. And it is true, that you have to build in sufficient margin in the receive signal level to accommodate the fading that occurs due to rainfall at those frequencies. However, even at millimeter-wave frequencies, a well-designed link should be very reliable with a "5 - 9s" availability (that means 99.999%) even if its range will be only a couple of miles in heavy rain areas. In addition, at 5.8 GHz, the UNII band frequency that B2X is using, the attenuation of the radio signal due to rain is insignificant and so rain has no practical impact on the link reliability at all.
Security - What's on everyone's mind.

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 Encryption
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! Check with your B2X representative to find out how we can connect your business.
