November 28, 2012

A First Responder panel on Building a National Public Safety Broadband  Network (at our recent i-CANADA Summit)  was chaired by Steve Palmer, Director, Science and Technology Transition, Defence R&D Canada & CATA National Leadership Council Advisor. He described the new LTE Test-Bed pilot in the context of a trend towards a $2-billion investment in mobile communications in Canada.  Michael Sullivan, Division Chief Communications, Ottawa Fire Services, said that through the Test-Bed, they will be piloting projects in a real-world environment.  They will be able to interact with industry to find new ways to make advantageous choices. The LTE Test-Bed will reach the Ottawa core and the city of Gatineau, Québec, making it an interprovincial program.
