Wavefront, Canada’s Centre of Excellence for Wireless Commercialization and Research, and Communitech, a member of the Canadian Digital Media Network (CDMN) this week announced a new collaboration agreement. The collaboration is anchored by complementary mandates to accelerate the growth of wireless and technology companies in Ontario and across Canada, the two said in a release.

With financial support available from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP), Wavefront will offer programs to Communitech network companies, including advisory and mentorship, and mobile application development and testing services.   

These services include onsite access to the Wavefront mobile device library, which houses the most in-demand smartphones and tablets for testing, as well as a selection of feature phones. As well, Communitech clients will be able to perform remote testing on global carrier networks with Perfecto Public Cloud automated testing services, and sophisticated usability studies.  

Communitech clients will also be able to participate in a variety of advisory and mentorship programs delivered by Wavefront, including the Machine to Machine (M2M) Accelerator program, with training, tools and resources provided by Deutsche Telekom, Rogers and Sierra Wireless.
