The Next Generation Networks Imperative
Canada’s future prosperity and global competitiveness relies on the digital transformation of its vertical industries and society. This transformation will be enabled by advanced communication networks and the disruptive and innovative NGN technology that underpin them. CENGN commissioned a study by IDC Research which examines the importance and opportunity for Next Generation Networks in Canada, and defines 3 national goals for the country. JC will review the conclusions of the report and take an in-depth look on how CENGN addresses these 3 goals.
As President and CEO of CENGN, Jean-Charles (JC) Fahmy provides leadership and strategic direction to the company and drives the delivery of CENGN’s mission by working with the ICT ecosystem on the goal of the commercialization, growth, and global competitiveness of Canada’s innovation economy.
JC has over 25 years of global leadership experience in tech, creating value and accelerating business performance with large public companies as well as both Private Equity and Venture Capital backed businesses. Prior to CENGN, JC held several senior leadership roles including Vice President of Product Management & Business Development at Coriant, and Operating Executive in the Telecom practice at Marlin Equity Partners, a leading Private Equity Firm.
JC holds an MBA from McGill University, and a BASc in Electrical Engineering from the University of Ottawa.
