WIT’s Telecommunications Software and Systems Group (TSSG) won the ‘Innovation in Business’ and the newly introduced category ‘Information and Communications Technology’ awards at the prestigious Glanbia Kilkenny Business Awards ceremony held in Lyrath Estate Hotel on Saturday, November 15th.

Commenting on TSSG’s double win, John Hurley, CEO of Kilkenny Chamber said “The judges found that the standard was extremely high in both the ICT and Innovation categories this year. The high level of technical expertise shown by the TSSG team was very impressive and their passion and commitment for their business came through very strongly in their presentations. They were worthy recipients of these awards.”

The Innovation in Business award was awarded in recognition of the recently acquired TSSG spin out company ‘FeedHenry’, aptly named after Henry Shefflin. Red Hat Inc acquired the company earlier this year, making it the first ICT multinational of its kind to move into the region, with new jobs expected to be announced in 2015.  In the past five years, TSSG has also been involved in creating 16 start-up companies based on its knowledge, skills and/or technology including FeedHenry Ltd., ZolkC Ltd. and KodaCall.

The internet of things (IoT) of billions of net-connected sensors will be nothing without the consumers it will serve, said Prof Willie Donnelly, director of the TSSG group at Waterford Institute of Technology.

Donnelly explained: “The exciting thing about the internet of things is that it is a new way of building services, organising society, collecting information and processing that information. But what is really exciting is how it can be used for the benefit of society.”

Last week, Waterford Institute of Technology’s TSSG group signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with UCC’s Tyndall Instituteto seek €82m from the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme to fund 10 internet of things start-ups.

The MoU creates a critical mass of more than 580 hardware and 120 software engineers focused on the IoT opportunity.

The EU funded OpenLab project held its final Technical Review in Paris recently.

TSSG were partners and active contributors to this successful venture over the past 3 years.

When OpenLab kicked off in September 2011, the partners set ambitious goals to create a federation of heterogeneous testbeds where future internet experimenters could research and trial their new solutions. The success of the two open calls within the project highlight the achievements in this space with new academic and commercial partners joining the project and executing innovative and boundary pushing experiments.
