Bringing 5G to life
When Canada’s 5G network launches, its blisteringly fast speeds will impact every aspect of our lives, from communication and transportation to healthcare, entertainment and even agriculture. As a result, opportunities will abound for Canadian companies looking to develop groundbreaking new 5G-era systems.
The estimated economic impact of 5G deployment in Canada will reach $40 billion of annual GDP uplift by 2026, and 250,000 permanent jobs added to the Canadian economy in that time.
Skilled R&D talent, funding, and project management capabilities are essential to ensure any innovative systems or products meet the demands of a hyper-connected world — but acquiring those key elements can be challenging for Canadian small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
