Rogers Communications today announced it is collaborating with CableLabs to bring the world's best technology to Canadians.

Located in Calgary at Rogers Barlow campus, CableLabs will be deepening its expertise in Canada through "CableLabs North," bringing together global industry partners and Rogers technologists to collaborate on network technology solutions. Together, the teams will develop new innovative applications and provide customers seamless connections in and out of the home or workplace.

CableLabs North will develop technology to deliver 5G using cable network infrastructure to bring customers even faster speeds and more capacity. Other areas of focus for Rogers include its rollout of 10G, the future of cable internet that will bring multi-gigabit speeds up to 10 times faster than today with enhanced reliability and ultra-low latency.

For over 30 years, CableLabs has been a world-leader in future-forward R&D, bringing together industry leaders, including Comcast, Charter, Cox, J:Com and Vodafone, to share knowledge and develop scalable network standards and technology. The organization has developed technology and over 800 patents that help deliver faster speeds and more reliability on cable networks to meet consumers' evolving expectations.

Today's announcement is part of Rogers ongoing commitment to bring global innovation and the best networks to Canadians.  Last year, Rogers closed its transformative merger with Shaw, bringing together Canada's largest and best 5G network with a national coast-to-coast wireline company with fibre-powered internet available to over 60% of Canadian households.
