Motorola Launches New 900 MHz Canopy Broadband Radios

Motorola began shipping an new version of its 900 MegaHertz (MHz) Canopy wireless broadband radio that features a fully integrated antenna. The integrated high-gain antenna enables these Canopy radios to reach up to 40 miles in a point-to-multipoint, line-of-sight application and provide enhanced penetration for non line-of-sight applications. It could be used to extend a service provider's network coverage by offering last mile data connectivity to remote subscribers or in areas of dense foliage.

Motorola also has made available a new software release (R6) for all Canopy 900 MHz modules, which increases the aggregate throughput by a factor of two, up to 2.1 megabits per second to a single user. The new software decreases the latency in the new 900 MHz module to 15 milliseconds from 45 milliseconds giving service providers increased ability to support VoIP and gaming applications for their subscribers. The software download is available for all 900 MHz radios already deployed and can be installed remotely.
