By Anthony Capkun
January 17, 2021 – Bell reports it is installing its 5G wireless communication systems at the University of Sherbrooke’s Interdisciplinary Institute for Technological Innovation (3IT) to enable research projects that further develop technology in a range of sectors, including the internet of things and smart energy management.
“Proofs of concept and assessment of the benefits of new technologies and their positive impact on return on investment will enable us to develop solutions to address many of society’s needs, such as smart energy management and low-carbon mobility,” said the university’s Vincent Aimez.
“Groundbreaking technologies developed at the university will become a lever to enable companies to achieve their strategic objectives and, in some cases, reinvent their business models, especially in the manufacturing sector,” says Bell.
