A Message from Ritch Dusome, President & CEO of CENGN
It has been a fast-paced first 6 months here at CENGN, Canada’s Centre of Excellence in Next Generation Networks. We have moved from a boardroom to a world class office space and data centre in the middle of Kanata’s High Tech Research Park. We have worked with our industry members to put together a rules of engagement and governance model where true co-opetition is at play. With the expertise of our team and the consortium we have architected a truly state-of-the-art open source and enterprise multi-vendor platform that can be used to validate and accelerate the newest SDN, NFV and IoT technology. With this start and the quality of the Small-to-Medium Enterprises we met over the course of our cross-Canada Roadshow, I am confident that we are on track to ensure that Canada is once again leading the way in the development of Next Generation Network and communication products and services, stay tuned!
