The Next Generation Networks Demonstration program (NGNP) provided SMEs with access to an ultra -high speed open multi-vendor network and cloud testbed, business and technical expertise and talent development opportunities to support them in the development of next-generation digital technologies, products and services and company growth. The program was offered through a partnership between the Centre of Excellence in Next Generation Networks (CENGN), OCI and the Government of Ontario.

The Next Generation Networks Demonstration program has made significant impacts on advancing Ontario’s technology innovation sector and economic growth for Ontario SMEs, surpassing all targets.

The program has supported over 200 SMEs in the development and testing of new technologies trained over 1200 highly qualified personnel and helped to close the digital gap in rural and northern communities by supporting projects for residential broadband access.
