The University of Waterloo and Rogers Communications partner on advanced research for Canadian-made 5G solutions in a real-world setting

The University of Waterloo has become one of the first 5G smart campuses in Canada as part of a partnership with Rogers Communications that leverages the University’s global leadership in computing, engineering and co-operative education.

The smart campus is part of a plan by Rogers to advance 5G research in the Toronto-Waterloo tech corridor and to become a global leader in 5G technology, which promises to transform businesses, industries and cities. This week, Rogers announced that it has expanded its 5G network to over 50 new Canadian towns and cities including Waterloo and the University of Waterloo campus, which builds on an existing multimillion-dollar partnership agreement with Waterloo.

The launch of 5G across Canada marks the next big step in evolving the way Canadians connect to the world around them. Expected to be the most transformative technology since wireless services were introduced in 1985, 5G will make real-time connectivity a reality, accelerating the transition to a truly digitally connected world.
