Latest Industry Insights from Draup Braindesk

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:
