Ericsson 5G: made for Canada
Ericsson has been helping make a Connected Canada possible for 70 years. We partner with leading telecommunication companies and academia to accelerate R&D, build 5G infrastructure and bring connectivity to all Canadians. We’re committed to advancing the country’s digital agenda through turningpoint technologies such as 5G. This means enabling Canada’s industries to lead on the world stage, supporting major service providers on their path to nationwide 5G rollout and collaborating with leading players from both academia and wider industry. It’s all part of our long-standing dedication to drive innovation and ensure digital inclusion for all Canadians.
In Canada, Ericsson provides 5G infrastructure products and services for Bell, EastLink, Rogers, TBAYTEL, TELUS, Videotron and Xplore and live 5G commercial networks across the country. We enable private network solutions as well as transport and critical infrastructure to remote mines and utilities across the country through client partnerships with Ambra, Hydro BC, Hydro One, Hydro Quebec and more. We have more than 170 5G commercial agreements or contracts with unique service providers globally.
Research and Development in Canada
With state-of-the-art 5G R&D centers and offices in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto, we are working closely with partners, Canadian telecommunications leaders and the Canadian government to rollout a secure 5G network for the entire country.
Ericsson Canada’s R&D sites fulfill worldwide mandates in development, testing and support of wireless networks and advanced user multimedia services. Our contribution to the global wireless communications industry spans several sites, labs and product areas. Our Canadian teams are prolific creators of intellectual property and contributors to the Ericsson patent portfolio, with more than 100 Invention Disclosures per year. We have been awarded over $15M from our funding partners, Mitacs and NSERC, for Canadian R&D collaborations projects.
Ericsson’s largest R&D site in North America is in Ottawa. The Ottawa lab is a strategic R&D site with end-to-end development capabilities. It’s also one of the few Verification Centres for Ericsson. Our teams work in all phases of the product development cycle, from research, architecture, systematization, hardware/ software design, integration, test, field test and customer support. Since 2020, our Ottawa Open Lab has been a key site on the recently created Cloud RAN product development unit responsible for Ericsson Cloud RAN products worldwide. Ericsson also established its Global AI Accelerator division in 2019 in Montreal. This 5G innovation hub focuses on R&D in AI and automation to leverage innovative technologies and create data-driven, intelligent and robust systems for automation, evolution and growth.
