Ericsson has extended a 5G security partnership with Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, through a new industrial research chair awarded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), the Canadian federal funding agency.
- Ericsson extends partnership with Hydro-Québec on network inventory management system
- Agreement includes a modernization project using Ericsson’s latest solution, Adaptive Inventory
- Project will include the development of new use cases, leading to a more automated and efficient management of network inventory
Mitacs, in partnership with Ericsson, welcomes 80 research interns to work within the Global Artificial Intelligence Accelerator (GAIA) in Montreal, a hub focusing on research and development in artificial intelligence and machine learning. The Canadian hub connects to three others in a global network spanning India, Sweden, and the United States (California).
Over the next three years, graduate student interns from Canadian universities — including, Concordia University, École de technologie supérieure, McGill University, Dalhousie University, University of Toronto, University of Regina, University of Saskatchewan and Université de Moncton — will use artificial intelligence and machine-learning technologies to create data-driven, intelligent, and robust systems, including a 5G network in Canada.

LTE-enabled delivery of life-saving equipment and emergency medical supplies via beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) drones could see a 17-fold increase in the distance covered compared to current non-mobility-enabled alternatives. That’s just one finding from successful tests driven by health authorities in the Canadian province of Ontario, enabled by Ericsson LTE connectivity.
