The report recommends that Canadian technology firms, government and educational institutions concentrate their efforts in three key applications within the wireless sector: backhaul for intelligent transportation systems, wireless platform for mobile multiplayer gaming and wireless Platform for Systems Integration

The applications were selected for their potential economic impact, their contribution to international competitiveness and Canadian capabilities relative to competitors, the ICTC said.

Developed over the past year, the roadmap involved input from over 50 technology companies, nine universities and colleges and 21 research institutes and national industry associations.
