Motorola Offers 5.4 GHz Canopy System for Brazil

Motorola is launching a new version of its Canopy wireless broadband equipment portfolio, authorized for sale by Anatel, Brazil's National Telecommunications Agency, in the 5.4 GigaHertz (GHz) band.

In point-to-multipoint network, Canopy's Advantage 5.4 GHz solution offers aggregate data transmission rates up to 14 Mbps with a range of 1.6 kilometers and 7 Mbps with coverage of up to 3.2 kilometers.

The Canopy portfolio also has available products for Brazil's 5.8 GHz band that have been designed from a feature and price perspective for private network operators and Internet service providers to businesses and residences. For example, UNIMED Marilia, part of the largest Brazilian private medical assistance network, has deployed with ABASE Motorola's Canopy platform in the 5.8 GHz band to create an IP network between its doctors offices with service providers, drugstores and hospitals in Marilia, Garca, Pompeia, Echapora and Vera Cruz, all in the state of Sao Paulo.
