Western University has partnered with Bell Canada to create an advanced 5G research centre that will help shape smarter cities and communications systems, increase drone security, and better manage business continuity. As part of the partnership, Bell will invest $2.7M and deploy 5G network equipment and infrastructure throughout the Western campus, fund research and development initiatives, training opportunities, and technological innovations. “By using campus as a ‘living lab’ for new technologies like 5G, we’re offering a unique opportunity to ask a full range of important questions across disciplines,” said Western Acting Vice-President (Research) Sarah Prichard.
