Rogers Selects Microsoft Azure as Cloud Partner for 5G Innovation Across Canada
Rogers and Microsoft have today announced a five-year strategic alliance to help enterprise and small and medium business customers accelerate digitization and take full advantage of hybrid work and 5G-enabled solutions.
The partnership aims to enable organizations to upgrade legacy infrastructure, significantly reduce costs on redundant wireline voice services, and enhance customer and employee experiences.
This alliance builds on the two company’s long-standing relationship which has led Rogers to be one of Canada’s largest resellers of Microsoft 365 and Teams solutions.
“Canadian businesses of all sizes are re-envisioning how they can use technology, including Microsoft Teams, powered by Azure to deliver a more seamless experience across their mobile device and PC,” said Kevin Peesker, President, Microsoft Canada.
“Together, we are bringing Operator Connect Mobile to Canada, which will help businesses save up to 50% in costs by upgrading outdated, expensive legacy voice infrastructure and shifting to a best-in-class digital calling experience. We’re proud to power the latest digital connectivity advances for Canadians and look forward to playing a pivotal role in helping businesses thrive in the new world of work,” said Ron McKenzie, President of Rogers Business.
The two technology companies will also explore new opportunities to support the Internet of Things and Mobile Edge Computing to advance 5G innovation and Canada’s digital economy.
