ENCQOR 5G

ENCQOR 5G (Evolution of Networked Services through a Corridor in Québec and Ontario for Research and Innovation) is a transformational Canada-Québec-Ontario partnership focused on research and innovation in the field of 5G disruptive technologies, on adoption initiatives and system uses.

ENCQOR establishes the first Canadian pre-commercial corridor of 5G digital infrastructure — the key to making the digital economy a reality.

ENCQOR 5G has four distinct streams focused on supporting small-to-medium sized enterprises across Ontario and Québec, assisting in the pre-development of research, collaboration and vital testing of 5G technologies.

Stream – Open for Applications

The Accessing the 5G Innovation Platform as a Service (iPaaS) Testbed enables small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to get early access to a state-of-the-art 5G development platform for prototyping and testing new products and services.

Access to iPaaS is offered out of three ENCQOR 5G Digital Innovation Hubs. Not located near a hub? We’re now also providing remote access!
