NAIT, Rogers partner to deliver 5G-enabled testing environments for innovators


The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology has partnered with Rogers Communications Inc to provide two fully operational 5G-enabled testing grounds for innovators. The first of the two networks is NAIT’s Productivity and Innovation Centre, which provides a space for industry partners to develop and test 5G technologies before bringing them to the market. The second is a portable 5G testing environment. “The 5G hub at NAIT enhances our polytechnic capacity to equip students and industry for the digital economy,” said NAIT President Laura Jo Gunter. The installation of these networks is supported by a combined $3.8M from the Government of Canada and Government of Alberta.
