UOttawa, TELUS partner on transforming campus to 5G-connected innovation hub

January 26, 2022
The University of Ottawa has partnered with TELUS on an initiative that will transform UOttawa’s campus into a 5G-connected innovation hub. TELUS will be investing $6M in implementing 5G technology across UOttawa’s campuses through the five-year partnership. The partners are also working on extending the partnership to support the creation of two on-campus 5G research labs. “5G will be a game changer in how we live, work, conduct research and teach in an increasingly digital world,” said Sylvain Charbonneau, VP, Research and Innovation at UOttawa. “This 5G investment allows us to immerse our students in the world’s most advanced digital technology during these formative years so they develop important skills to shape the digital economy of the future.” UOttawa (ON)
