A handful of Canadian cities are getting broadband wireless networks, thanks to Xplorenet: The company is using Motorola’s Canopy gear to build networks in Toronto, Montreal, Edmonton, Ottawa, Vancouver and some smaller cities. The operator will use a wide range of spectrum, including 900 MHz, 2.4 GHz, and 5.9 GHz.
Canada is quite the unwired country. Wireless technologies are perfect especially for the more remote areas of the country which have very sparse populations.
Canopy will be an interesting product to watch. It’s done well around the world and while Motorola has joined the WiMax Forum, it’s not clear if Canopy will become WiMax compliant. So far, the lack of the WiMax promise doesn’t seem to be affecting the demand for Canopy.
