From the pager to the world's first commercially successful smartphone, many early forms of communication were Canadian-made. In today’s digital world, Canada continues to lead the way in innovation. Home to a rising technology market, Canada is growing and attracting innovative talent from across the globe – CBRE ranks Toronto and Vancouver in the top 12 tech talent markets1 in North America, while Montreal boasts over 140 game studios. Which is why it should come as no surprise that Canada is attracting investments from global businesses, including some of the world’s largest technology companies.
Many enterprises based in the United States are seizing the opportunity and rapidly expanding up north. Due to its strong tech market and economy, familiarity, tax incentives and lower cost of highly skilled talent, Canada is more than a friendly neighbor to U.S. businesses that are accelerating their global trajectory. However, with expansion comes an influx of connectivity needs, data security and compliance concerns, and to be successful requires a partnership with a strong communications service provider. As organizations make critical decisions about which service provider to use, they should pay close attention to which provider can meet and scale their technology needs as they aspire to grow their businesses.
Reliability, security, and resiliency are also top of mind when seeking a Canadian service provider. Finding a provider in Canada that checks all those boxes, with robust, comprehensive service level agreements to help ensure businesses remain up and running, and an extensive team of experts, with a 24/7 help desk is not that hard. The clear choice is BCE Global, a Bell Canada company.
Solid experience, strong history, solid choice
As part of Bell Canada, Canada’s top communications company with over 22 million consumer, business and wholesale customer connections, BCE Global is a solid player with an edge in the desirable Canadian market. Made in Canada and built on over 140 years of experience, BCE Global has access to the largest network in Canada as well as presence in industry-leading data centers across the country. With multiple points-of-presence throughout key cities in the United States, enterprises can take advantage of Bell’s fiber optic connectivity between Canada and the U.S. and far beyond.
With a deeply rooted commitment to our nation’s growth and prosperity supported by heavily investing and innovating in communications infrastructure and services, the BCE Global team continues this long-standing tradition. In 2019, Bell invested $4 billion in network infrastructure, enabling the transport needed for today’s big data, applications, IoT and multimedia services. This astounding investment supported fiber coverage to 9.7 million homes and businesses, wireless coverage to 99% of Canadians, and the launch of Canada’s largest 5G network in select major cities2, laying the foundation for limitless opportunities.
Diversity, triversity and data sovereignty
When building a powerful partnership with BCE Global, businesses gain access into Canada’s largest network. Moreover, with over 165,000 miles of fiber (enough to wrap around the planet nearly 7x), our intelligent solutions can rely on the world-class network technologies needed to help you meet your customer requirements. Extending your reach even further, BCE Global’s footprint also encompasses connectivity into the U.S. state of Alaska. This unique connectivity capability at both borders avoids some of the vagaries of ocean floor cables in turbulent seas.
Spanning from coast-to-coast, BCE Global provides clients with a unique “triverse” offering, providing three low-latency routes, robust infrastructure for mission-critical applications and a dependable and resilient core network. In case you are wondering, triversity helps to safeguard businesses from potential network outages; in the event of simultaneous network disruptions, network traffic can automatically redirect to the next available route.
Once your critical data arrives in Canada, you can be confident it can stay 100% within Canada to help you to comply with regulations and data security requirements.
Connecting more than just businesses
BCE Global is more than just a name. Behind the name is a team built on integrity that goes the extra mile to provide businesses and residences with quality service, connectivity and network reliability. What’s more, as part of Bell Canada, BCE Global is a team of engaged corporate citizens, supporting a range of innovative programs to support award-winning environmental leadership.
Bell’s environmental policy, first issued in 1993, reflects our team members’ values, as well as the expectations of customers, investors, and society. The company strives to save energy and reduce associated GHG emissions, among other targets, by increasing electricity efficiency at Bell facilities, reducing the fuel consumption of company vehicles and using alternatives for business travel. Recognized, yet again in 2020, as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers3, Bell continues to be listed on socially responsible investment indices, such as the FTSE4Good Index, the Jantzi Social Index, the United Nations Global Compact 100 and Euronext Vigeo World 120 index.
Bell has also created and initiated various community support programs, such as the Bell Let’s Talk mental health initiative, by far one of the largest mental health campaigns in the world. Most recently, the company has increased Bell Let’s Talk funding by $5 million in direct response to the COVID-19 crisis, and is proud to be working with the Red Cross, CMHA, Kids Help Phone, Revivre and Strongest Families to immediately direct new mental health resources where they’re needed most. Additionally, our annual Bell Let’s Talk Day, held every January, has received support worldwide from a wide range of influencers including leading figures in sports, business, entertainment, politics, and even royalty.
