All CENGN projects are carried out through the multisite CENGN Testbed. The testbed is made up of 4 data centres connected on the ORION network. The data centres are located across Ontario’s top innovation regions: CENGN HQ (Kanata), Invest Ottawa (Ottawa), MaRS (Toronto), and Communitech (Waterloo). It employs interoperability between software, hardware, open source technology, and a multitude of products from CENGN’s many vendors.
The unique multi-vendor physical and virtualized lab enables companies to validate and test at scale new and emerging SDN and NFV technologies, cloud platform solutions, end-to-end IoT deployments and more before moving them to production.
