What is a CENGN Project?

CENGN Project Details

CENGN helps small and medium-sized Canadian technology companies accelerate their commercialization efforts by giving them no-cost access to our enterprise-scale computing and networking testbed to run projects that accelerate their commercialization efforts.

Projects are 9 to 12 weeks in duration and typically range from demonstrations/proof-of-concepts to interoperability tests to scale/stress tests. In addition to the testbed resources, CENGN also provides you with project management and engineering support during the project. Our marketing team will work with you to create and distribute materials that promote the success of your project.

Project Areas

We accept projects in a wide range of technology areas, but our specialties are: SDN/NFV/SD-WAN, IoT, Data Centre/Cloud, Security, Mobile Networks, Network Transport, and Network Applications (eg: automation, analytics, operational support, etc).

  • Your product is either in market now, or is approaching the end of development
