Canadian telco Telus is partnering Montreal’s Ecole de Technologie Superieure (ETS) and telecom software provider iBwave at a new 5G laboratory to ‘re-imagine how wireless networks inside buildings are designed and deployed as part of large architecture and construction projects.’ The partnership will explore the concept of Building Information Modelling (BIM), which centralises all of a project’s data and a building’s characteristics in a single 3D digital representation. BIM should improve telcos’ 5G network deployment planning by taking into account the impact that the design of a building has on mobile signals. Telus also recently entered a partnership with Australian electric vehicle charging company Jolt to install and connect ‘up to 5,000’ public charging stations across Canada, declaring the rollout will meet demand for public chargers, helping to drive the adoption of electric vehicles and supporting the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.’
