The telecom Industry in Canada is developing emerging technologies to provide better connectivity to its people and improve productivity to achieve sustainability.
5G: 5G deployment will lead to a greater speed in the transmissions, a lower latency, greater capacity of remote execution, and the possibility of implementing virtual networks.
IoT: Using this technology, it has become possible for enterprises to provide SIM card-enabled connectivity between devices at emergency health centers or in largely unstaffed factories powered by robots.
Edge Computing: Edge computing in telecom provides execution resources (computing and storage) for applications with networking close to the end-users, typically within or at the boundary of operator networks. Edge provides low latency, high bandwidth, device processing, and data offload as well as trusted computing and storage.
Telecom players in Canada are focusing on the technical trials of 5G and bringing affordable high-speed broadband connectivity in the region.
5G Based Drone:
- Rogers Communications partnered with InDro Robotics and the University of British Columbia’s Merida Labs to research future 5G use cases for drone technology.
5G Service Push:
Telus partnered with Nokia to expand its 5G service offerings and also deploy Nokia’s subscriber data management and policy controller, NetAct network management, LTE indoor picocells, and IP edge routers.
Next Generation Broadband Network:
IBI Group has joined Community Network Partners for a project that will deliver a next-generation fiber-optic network capable of 10 Gigabits per second (Gbps) to residents and businesses, making it one of the first of its kind in North America
