Building a better online Canada is an important issue for all Canadians. Whether it’s funding a project through the Community Investment Program, helping build an IXP or testing Canada’s internet performance, CIRA is doing its part. Join us to learn more about how CIRA is helping your community.

In addition to an overview of CIRA, we will discuss the power and potential of CIRA’s Internet Performance Test (IPT).

Richard Schreier

Product Manager, CIRA

Developed by the engineers at CIRA using the MLab NDT open source test platform, the Internet Performance Test (IPT) is a key technology to understanding Canada’s Internet performance. Richard will explain what IPT is (and what it isn’t), who can use it and for what purpose. He will also share examples of how businesses, cities and Internet users can benefit from and leverage the resulting test data. And, he will examine IPTs future potential and what it could do for Canada’s digital future.

Presentations will begin at 5:30 PM.
