Motorola Canopy

By b_walthall ·
I was wondering if anyone out there has implemented Motorola Canopy as a wireless solution and if they have found any security problems with it.

Motorola Canopy

by markh In reply to Motorola Canopy

I hope you already found the info you were looking for; if not... Canopy uses BRAID for security when initiating sessions, and then uses either DES or AES, depending on the model, for session encryption. Canopy also benefits from the fact that it operates using proprietary protocols for transmission; Canopy is NOT compatible with any IEEE 802.11 standards. Motorola also has a software product called BAM ? Bandwidth Allocation Manager ? that runs on Linux and provides authentication for Canopy Subscriber Modules when they attempt to initiate a session with an Access Point. Without special care and configuration, however, Canopy is ?wide open?; any Subscriber Module can connect to any Access Point. Visit Motorola?s web site,, and their user forum at for more info.

Experience talking

by kgramse In reply to Motorola Canopy

We have deployed over 350 air miles of Canopy equipment across rural areas using the focal dish to concentrate the signal as well as to secure the signal. The other respondent stated that any Canopy SM can attach to any Canopy AP but there are ways to stop that from happening. A simple setting in the AP stops it from broadcasting its color code, thereby making it invisible to unwanted SM's which cannot connect without the color code.
