10 pioneering leaders helping to build a world of IoT

SPE WillieDiving headfirst into emerging technologies, these 10 leaders will not be left behind in the next digital revolution. In fact, they are already leading the charge.

Joining an esteemed list of sci-tech influencers in and from Ireland, these next additions are all influencers in the internet of things (IoT), an emerging space in technology considered to be as significant as the dawn of the internet.

Hyperbolic as that may be, the vast potential of connected devices is the kind of stuff that inspires hype, and those already getting their hands dirty are laying the foundations of what is to come.

For something with such broad reach, we have a wide-spanning selection of leaders. Some are researching and developing the communications and infrastructure required for a world filled with connected devices, some are building the smart devices and wearable technology that are transforming industry and agriculture, and others are bringing IoT to the masses with smart home technology.

Openstack Cloud Software tested at TSSG.

OpenStack_CloudSoftwareThe Infrastructure Group (IG) have been working over the last twelve months to bring Openstack Cloud Software into production internally within TSSG.

Deploying Openstack will not only bring the benefit of reduced infrastructure costs but there we should also witness a noticeable improvement on productivity within TSSG research units. The current cloud system within TSSG does not offer self-service and instead delivers a time-consuming process between developers and the infrastructure group.

What has been noticed over the years is that the lack of self management for the developer results in an increased life-cycle of virtual machines and backups, which in turn increases management complexity and wastes valuable resources.

Network Enabled Testbeds

Waterford Institute of Technology’s Telecommunications, Software & Systems Group (TSSG)  was invited to present at the HEAnet National Conference 2015.

In this talk TSSG presented testbeds for research and development. More specifically, looking at making testbed resources accessible over networks (the most common of which is the Internet). Testbeds require bigger user communities to become sustainable due to their specialised nature. Exposing the resources of different classes of test facilities has long been a component of European research. These programmes and resources are utilised to showcase technologies being developed by some of the leading research groups at HEAnet clients such as TSSG and CTVR.


TSSG, in partnership with HEAnet, deployed a Multi-Domain Virtual Private Network (MDVPN) as part of the EU XiFi project. MDVPN is a GÉANT service that enables to creation of large-scale multi-site meshed VPNs, in this case 16 sites were involved. The VPN connected each of the nodes, or data centers, to each other in a mesh, enabling the federation of resources within each node to be used by all the members of the federation, whilst achieving reliable performance. This resulted in a EU wide testbed being created that provided distributed cloud infrastructures for SMEs (the XiFi end-users) to leverage.

While XiFi has concluded, this infrastructure continues to be developed as part of the FIPPP capacity building and technology foundation activities. This is visible as FIWARE Lab – a pre-production facility for test and trial of FI applications. This is being actively used in Phase 3 Accelerators for SMEs across many domains. If you’re an SME looking to develop your next generation of technology, please contact TSSG
