MISSISSAUGA, Ontario and MORRISTOWN, N.J., May 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- P3 Group, a leading global consulting, management and engineering services company, today announced it has expanded its Toronto area office to serve the growing testing and network optimization needs of Canada's mobile carriers and device manufacturers.
Located at 1450 Meyerside Drive, Mississauga, the new 3,500 square foot office is home to 14 experienced device, network and application engineers who conduct functional and performance tests during product development, certification, implementation and post-launch. They travel extensively throughout Canada in specialized test vehicles, and on foot in key business and public venues, to evaluate device function, service quality and usability from the end user's perspective
"We're all about solving deep technical problems for our customers," said Dirk Bernhardt, CEO of P3 communications, Inc. "In addition to performing certification, usability, application and security testing for wireless devices, we also assess service performance and benchmark mobile and fixed communications networks. Our comprehensive approach combined with our suite of proprietary and certified diagnostic tools help Canadian carriers bring new devices to consumers more quickly, streamline network deployments and optimize service performance."
In addition to serving the needs of Canada's wireless industry, P3's Toronto team provides international device testing and network roaming measurements for major U.S. carriers and international OEMs as well as chipset suppliers.
P3 has more than a decade of experience in testing wireless devices, network quality and service performance around the globe. The company has provided consulting, engineering and testing services for Canadian mobile operators since 2013 and has served major U.S. carriers since 2007. Last year the company performed the first independent mobile benchmark of Voice over LTE services in the United States.
The new office in Mississauga complements the P3 Montreal facility, which was established in 2008 to serve the area's booming aerospace market and today employs over 50 aerospace engineers specializing in system and structural design, advanced aerodynamics, cabin design, manufacturing engineering and certification. As a strategic supplier to the industry's OEM and Tier 1 suppliers, P3 has played a significant role in bringing some of the major development programs to market.
"We are very happy to grow our footprint here in Canada, especially as we move toward an integrated service portfolio between our aerospace, automotive and telecommunications platforms. This diversity has been a key differentiator for P3, and will continue to be a big part of our strategy moving forward," said Mark Makoukji, managing director for P3 Group Canada, Inc.
In addition to Mississauga and Montreal, P3 office hubs in the Americas include Morristown, Dallas, Detroit, Greenville, Los Angeles, San Jose, Portland, Seattle, Mexico City and Sao Paulo. As in all locations, P3 provides its full portfolio of services from the Mississauga office.
"We continue to grow at a rapid pace and are excited about expanding our Canadian team," Bernhardt said. "The Toronto area is a hotbed for wireless carriers and device manufacturers. At the same time, it is becoming a key area for research and development for connected car telematics, creating new opportunities for us to partner with P3's Canadian automotive division. We are strategically positioned for success and look forward to continued growth in Canada."
