Martello’s mobile network performance proof of concept demonstrates that it is possible to maintain reliable cellular network connectivity for bandwidth-intensive real-time services such as an autonomous moving vehicle. This offers potential for solutions such as the mobile office, autonomous trains and drones, disaster relief and emergency response, where reliable communication is critical to success and safety. Martello presented this solution recently to the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police on their visit to the L5 Track in Ottawa.
Working with the BlackBerry QNX technical team over six months, Martello was able to provide connectivity to the infotainment system inside the BlackBerry QNX vehicle. “This proof of concept demonstrated that Martello’s technology can deliver reliable network connectivity in challenging mobile applications such as autonomous vehicles,” said Grant Courville, VP, Products and Strategy at BlackBerry QNX. “We’re pleased to have collaborated with Martello to bring this proof of concept to fruition, working with the BlackBerry QNX operating system.”
“This proof of concept is significant, because of the growing number of IoT applications which will require reliable network connectivity in challenging mobile environments, where both capacity and demand are variable,” said John Proctor, President and CEO of Martello. “I look forward to demonstrating our technology to the broader IoT and transportation ecosystem, and thank BlackBerry QNX for the opportunity to prove our concept with an industry leader.”
Martello’s solutions have been widely acclaimed in the industry. In September 2018, Martello received a Frost & Sullivan Leadership Award for NPM (Network Performance Management) and ranked as Ottawa’s Fastest Growing Company, at No. 28 on the Growth 500 list of Canada’s Fastest Growing Companies.
