||Since the Canopy product is based on line-of-sight technology, have you encountered
significant interference issues?
||Since Canopy systems were always intended to operate in an unlicensed band, they
were designed from the start to work in interference-riddled environments. In fact, one of
the unique characteristics of Canopy systems is their ability to tolerate interference from
other sources. The Canopy technology, unlike many of its competitors, does not cause
interference upon other components in a Canopy system because of its low carrier to
interference ratio of two to three decibels. For example, in order for a signal to interfere
with a Canopy signal, it must be at least 50 percent of the strength of the intended
Canopy signal to interfere with the throughput of the Canopy system. Some competing
wireless technology signals need to be 16 times stronger than the external interference to
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!
