||One of the biggest issues surrounding the Internet is security. The term "wireless"
immediately raises questions on the security of the system. Most consumers have
experienced the unintentional interception of portable phone signals and cellular phone
signals and equate this to wireless. Explain, in laymanís terms, how Canopyís wireless
technology addresses these problems.
||First, unlike analog telephone transmissions, digital transmissions of Internet traffic
are much more difficult to intercept because of the complex cryptology associated with
the technology. Second, like other Internet applications such as secure email or web
browsing, users can employ many security applications which prevent eavesdropping on
transmissions - whether such security applications are installed on the last-mile link to the
userís house or elsewhere in the Internet. Third, a Canopy system provides an over-theair
encryption, which cryptographically scrambles the data bits, preventing anyone
"listening" to the airwaves from deciphering any messages. In fact, the Canopy systemís
over-the-air link may be the most secure leg of the typical userís Internet connection.
Currently we supply service in 6 counties - Franklin, Bedford, Roanoke, Campbell, Henry and Pittsylvania County. We are always expanding and stretching out to provide more areas with service.
Our product line is based on Line-of-Site and Non-Line-of-Site technology. The Line-of-Site product requires a visual line of site to one of our towers. If you can see the tower then service should be good at your location. Our Non-Line-of-Site product has a limited range and is only located from certain towers but can provide service through trees and some obsticals. In either case before agreement signing, we will preform an on-site survey to verify the quality of service. The survey will consist of us bringing a mobile unit to your location and testing it thoroughly.
We have many tower locations now in the surrounding area, and are currently installing new ones monthly. Currently we have well over 30 access points providing service. (For more information please review the coverage map for a tower near you.)
