In 2021, Bell was the first Canadian communications provider to partner with AWS to leverage MEC, building on our leadership in next-generation services for business customers and consumers across the country. This was followed by a collaboration with AWS and VMware to help organizations across Canada plan, simplify and manage their hybrid cloud transformations.
Bell also joined with Google Cloud to combine our 5G network leadership with Google’s expertise in multicloud services, data analytics and AI to deliver next‑generation experiences for Bell customers across Canada.
A partnership with SCALE AI, a Montréal-based investment and innovation hub, is helping reduce installation time for new fibre connections by accelerating several steps in the supply chain using AI solutions. Bell is also offering a portfolio of software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions for enterprise customers to support their digital transformations, including Smart Supply Chain powered by Bell IoT Smart Connect for fleet and supply chain operators. This secure cloud-based platform aggregates IoT and operational data, delivering a single unified view of a company’s drivers and entire fleet of vehicles, as well as other data such as the temperature of cargo, to optimize and automate tracking and management.
Bell Business Markets is also simplifying and enhancing security operations for major organizations as they shift to the cloud with the launch of BSURE, a fully managed cybersecurity solution for business that combines Bell’s proven security expertise with state-of-the-art threat detection and management technology from Fortinet.
