On May 31 & June 1 2017, the Wireless World Research Forum hosted  the 4th Annual 5G Huddle in Ottawa, Canada as part of the celebrations of Canada’s 150th birthday, a move which was supported by the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association (CWTA), Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED), the Information Technology Association of Canada (ITAC), the Radio Advisory Board of Canada (RABC) and IEEE.
