An Engineer, an entrepreneur and a visionary created Yves R. Hamel & Associes Inc. (YRH) in 1967. After many years as an engineer for the CBC and latter helping in putting down the foundation of what is today known as Cogeco, Mr. Hamel decided to open his own engineering consultation firm. The companies first steps at its debut in 1967 was in broadcast engineering helping the Canadian radio and television broadcasting ventures take flight.
Because of this legacy, YRH has, since 1967 given valuable engineering service to a large number of broadcasters throughout in Canada and across the world.
At the start of the 80s, the first cellular networks start to take shape and are deployed to serve the increasingly mobile community. That is when YRH entered its second phase of expansion. With the arrival of two key partners, François Hamel and Maurice Beauséjour, both wireless telecommunications engineers, YRH was able to continue its wireless legacy and founding vision of offering new consultation services to the global wireless telecommunications industry; from broadcasters to cellular operators requiring specialized services with respect to coverage evaluations, frequency planning and microwave engineering.
At the start of the 90s, as cellular networks were becoming increasingly omnipresent, in Canada and on a global scale, YRH was at the front line seizing as many opportunities as it could nationally but mostly internationally. That period was for YRH a time of geometric growth, when its name became a Canadian staple for many wireless endeavours. These opportunities allowed YRH to work with international partners and clients and as YRH continued believing in its intrinsic values, gave the opportunity to its team of engineers to increase their knowhow and contribute positively to what wireless networks are today. Indeed, over the years YRH has contributed to wireless projects in more than 50 countries and is still doing so today.
As we entered into the 21st century, YRH realized that to remain competitive and efficient in the delivery of its solutions to its clients it had to increase its technological library of software tools and field equipment. During these years, YRH has acquired all of the wireless industry tools used in the different engineering departments to be able to support them at a moments notice. Whether it’s Planet Mentum EV or Pathloss 5, iBwave, EMF Visual or Mapinfo, YRH has the tool to help. Furthermore, it’s wireless field testing gear and experienced technicians and engineers are readily available to help troubleshoot or simply test any RF issue or concern our clients can have.
As Internet entered the mobility sphere with the recent addition of smart phones on HSPA, LTE, WiMax and Wi-Fi it’s now clear that wireless telecommunication technologies are rapidly evolving. To meet all the requirements of these rapid changes YRH has decided to add a new division to its portfolio of services. This new division, Telecommunication Infrastructure and IP Solutions are now completing the wireless communications division. YRH’s clients now have a single point of service to find a complete telecommunication solution with the same level of quality and efficiency that they have come to expect from YRH.
