Alcatel and SaskTel have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to conduct joint research and development.

Once finalized, the agreement will lead to the creation of approximately 20 new R&D positions to be based in Saskatchewan and jointly funded by the two companies.

R&D activity resulting from the MOU will focus on the development of advanced software applications to address global market needs.

Products and services resulting from the collaboration will be distributed worldwide.

“Alcatel has been a valued SaskTel supplier for many years,” said Robert Watson, President and CEO of SaskTel.

“This MOU is a natural evolution of that relationship and will enable us to leverage our combined experience to develop the applications needed to drive the next wave of innovation for the global communications market.”
