I got to check this out at the cable show in Atlanta, runs up to 14MB, say 25 ft in the air on a pole can deliver around a 1500 ft radius. There would be a trans/receive antenna at the business as well. If I'm not mistaken they have a tower version or could make a tower version of this. The one I seen was a pole mount.

ATLANTA -- Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT - News) today announced Cable Canopy(TM) -- a suite of products designed to empower cable operators to leverage the powerful Motorola MOTOwi4(TM) Canopy® wireless broadband solution to quickly and cost-effectively extend their existing networks.

This wireless and broadband innovation will be showcased at NCTA BizNet Pavillion during the 2006 National Show (Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta) where Motorola will be exhibiting at Stand #1537.

The new product line is designed to give operators a way to quickly add new commercial customers by providing high-speed data services to businesses that could previously not be served by their network.

The Motorola Canopy solution, part of the MOTOwi4 wireless access solutions, is a scalable, reliable platform that supports high-speed broadband applications. Its superior performance provides one of the lowest total costs of ownership and is designed to enable the reduction of a provider's start-up, maintenance, and leased-line costs. The Canopy point-to-point and point-to-multipoint system configurations are deployed in more than 100 countries worldwide.

Central to the Canopy Cable solution is the new Motorola SB5000, a DOCSIS® 2.0-compatible hardened cable modem and access point constructed to withstand and perform in all outdoor conditions. When coupled with the Motorola Canopy Advantage Subscriber Module, the SB5000 can extend the reach of HFC networks without having to incur the high installation costs of traditional copper wire or cable. As a result, cable operators can provide broadband services to more customers without sacrificing speed, quality, or security.

"With Cable Canopy, Motorola has created a powerful wireless solution that specifically meets the needs of the cable industry, helping them add capacity, reach new customers, and grow their businesses faster and more cost-effectively than with wireline alone -- while maintaining the performance and security customers expect," said Charles Dougherty, Motorola corporate vice president, and general manager, Connected Home Solutions. "The addition of this durable and versatile outdoor access point to the Canopy portfolio is another example of how Motorola is making it easier for operators to extend the reach of their networks."
