Olsonet Communications Corporation was established in June 2001, with head office in Ottawa, Canada. It was founded by a group of telecom experts from industry and academia.

Our mission is rapid specification, demonstration, prototyping, validation of microporcessor-based distributed sensor systems and their integration with existing technological and software bases.


We offer compact, reliable, affordable, energy-efficient, no-nonsense solutions to the problems of supervision, monitoring, and control involving equipment, assets, and people in scenarios described and governed by sets of dynamic rules.

Our technology, tools, and solutions are a culmination of 30 years experience in practical research (including academia) and demand-driven problem-solving / troubleshooting in the telecommunications industry.
