Clearcable – a Canadian telecommunications company – is starting business in Europe from a headquarters in Eindhoven. Clearcable, that started its activities in 2004 in Hamilton, Ontario, will be operating from Twinning Center at the TU/e campus.

Joep Brouwers, acting director at the regional development agency Brainport Development, is pleased to welcome Clearcable to the region, “especially because we highly believe in synergy with Canadian companies and those that share the collaborative and innovative spirit of the international network of the Intelligent Community Forum.” The Hamilton region and the Intelligent Community Forum have been partners for Brainport Eindhoven for a couple of years already.

“We are delighted to launch our global expansion in one of the world’s most Intelligent Communities”, says Clearcable President and Founder Rob McCann. “We look forward to adopting and supporting the culture of innovation in Brainport Eindhoven and are particularly pleased to foster the direct linkage to Canada’s innovation corridor.”

Demand for bandwidth is a global phenomenon and according to McCann, Clearcable has “a deep skillset in designing, building, and supporting broadband networks for communities of all sizes, anywhere in the world. Clearcable draws on integrity, innovation, and reliability to continue advancing the technology and success of its broadband services clientele by promoting new product development and service growth.”

Clearcable provides assessment and strategy consulting, complex network architecture and high-level design, logical and physical design, implementation and network deployments, cabling, project management, training, and ongoing network management and support services. “Brainport Development helped us to set up our business in a fast, flexible and transparent manner,” added McCann.
