USherbrooke, Bell partner on 5G wireless communication system

January 14, 2021
The Université de Sherbrooke has partnered with Bell to install a 5G wireless communications system at its Interdisciplinary Institute for Technological Innovation (3IT). The 5G system will allow USherbrooke to undertake research projects to develop technology in areas such as manufacturing, smart energy, and the Internet of Things. “Large-scale smart antenna networks are the cornerstone of 5G,” said USherbrooke Professor Sébastien Roy. “The partnership with Bell will make it possible to continue the research and development of these technologies as a primary focus, but now based on real data over genuine networks and commercially available or soon-to-be-available products.” NewsWire (QC)
