The CEO of one of Ireland’s foremost internet and communications R&D hubs, TSSG at Waterford Institute of Technology, Barry Downes, has said the advent of the internet of things will require a fusion of coding, hardware and electrical engineering skills.

Downes’ TSSG (Telecommunications Software and Systems Group) at Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT), has struck upon a methodology for turning college research into spin-out success. Focused on everything from broadband to 4G and even 5G, it is one of Europe’s foremost research groups focused on the future of communications and how it impacts our world.

The most glaring example of this has been FeedHenry, which was acquired last year by Red Hat for €63.5m, and proves that you don’t need to be based in a bustling metropolis or Silicon Valley to make an impact on the technology world.

“TSSG at its core is a science-driven organisation very focused on the future of key areas like communications.

“With FeedHenry we saw a gap for enterprises long before enterprises would need to have an enterprise-grade platform to help with mobility. Our researchers built a sophisticated middleware platform that became the FeedHenry cloud.”

He said that TSSG is now laser-focused on a number of key areas, including smart agriculture, internet of things (IoT) and the emerging world of virtual reality.

Waterford’s TSSG is currently bidding to lead a €30m EU-wide pilot focused on how smart technologies and the IoT could transform Europe’s agricultural landscape.
