December 12, 2018
Martello Technologies Group Inc. announced today that it has been selected alongside six other promising Canadian technology companies to participate in the BlackBerry/L-SPARK Accelerator Program. Spanning more than six months and focused on intensive, one-on-one, training, the accelerator program is designed to bring new products to market using BlackBerry QNX technology.
As part of the new accelerator program, BlackBerry will help Martello research and develop network solutions that deliver high performance services on the increasingly complex networks created by the Internet of Things (IoT).

From autonomous vehicles to smart cities, real-time IoT applications create network complexity, and Martello’s technology can help manage network resources, capacity and performance for these real-time IoT applications.
Martello’s proven solutions, already deployed in more than 150 countries around the world, continue to be recognized by industry. In October, the company received the Outstanding Information & Communications Technology Company (ICT) Recognition Award from IEEE, and in September, Martello was recognized with a Frost & Sullivan Leadership Award for NPM (Network Performance Management) and was also ranked as Ottawa’s Fastest Growing Company on the Growth 500 list of Canada’s Fastest Growing Companies.
