Motorola Canopy Lite (http://rbi.ims.ca/4930-513). Using Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access or WiMAX, this wireless product meets the IEEE 802.16e standard. The subscriber modules allow initial data throughputs of up to 512 Kbits/sec with 768 Kbits/sec burst and a maximum of 100 Kbits/sec full duplex in the 5.7 GHz spectrum. Canopy Lite throughputs can be increased from 512 Kbits/sec to a connection speed of up to 7 Mbps/sec. These faster speeds will accommodate applications such as video or Voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) applications. The technology in these units targets users in areas where dialup connections are inadequate or nonexistent, such as developing markets that require consistent, reliable service.
