What is a Canopy™ system?
The 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).

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.
