For more than 50 years, the city of Waterloo has been a technology training ground, where thinkers, designers, builders, and problem solvers have come to learn and collaborate. One of Waterloo’s most notable successes has been BlackBerry, which changed the way the world communicates using wireless technology. In 2014, BlackBerry veterans Ryan Hickey and Fraser Gibbs partnered with experienced technology CEO Dan Mathers. They built eleven-x to develop the next generation of wireless connectivity.

Today, eleven-x is a network operator enabling the Internet of Things. Our low power wide area network is purpose built for IoT, and is the first of its kind in Canada, providing connectivity for a wide variety of sensors and applications. Our network enables customers in the private and public sectors to efficiently and cost effectively manage assets, create smart cities, and realize environmental sustainability.

As authorities in the field, eleven-x will continue our city’s history of changing the way the world works.
