to focus on customer-centric innovation in support of Canada’s thriving Digital
Economic Strategy. In addition to the joint innovation centre we announced with
TELUS earlier in the year, this new lab, another strategic partnership with
TELUS is dedicated to
enterprise cloud services, and underscores commitment to bringing leading
technologies and solutions to our key customers.
“We have a long-term commitment to the
Canadian market, and will continue to contribute to the local community by
sponsoring, funding, and collaborating with universities across the nation,”
said Sean Yang, president, Huawei Canada.
The research that will be undertaken in
this new lab will lead to solutions for real-world problems associated with the
field of cloud computing. This agreement continues to demonstrate the value of
our choice of Huawei in terms of the right strategic partner for now and into
the future,” said Ibrahim Gedeon, chief technology officer, TELUS.
This innovative partnership will lead to
exciting research and development possibilities for Carleton students and staff
at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The new lab being located at
Carleton in the nation’s capital is yet another sign that high tech is again on
the move in Ottawa, providing our students with hands-on, real-world experience
that will give them a competitive edge in the Ottawa job market.
The lab will be used to drive student
interest in cloud services with Huawei equipment leveraging TELUS services to
benefit course work, senior-year projects and graduate research. The lab will
be directed by a member oversight committee led by representatives from Huawei,
TELUS, and Carleton University.
