Satellite communications technology company VT iDirect has announced that it is to establish a new Engineering and Innovation Centre in Killarney, in southwest Ireland.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}VT iDirect already has existing technology development centres located in Canada, Singapore, the UK and the US, and will be expanding its existing presence in Ireland which was established following the company’s 2014 acquisition of intellectual property (IP) from locally-based Altobridge.

The IP acquired from Altobridge focused on 2G and 3G solutions for cellular backhaul, which has today been integrated into existing iDirect systems that enable cellular backhaul for VSAT providers.

The new engineering roles that will be created at the Innovation Centre will focus on software, firmware, hardware, radio frequency and systems engineering technologies, the company said.

“Satellite connectivity requires some of the best engineers in the world lending their unique set of skills to help solve highly critical challenges. And as the demand for satellite continues to accelerate around the globe, the continued expansion of engineering resources will be required in order to further its development,” said Mary Cotton, CEO, iDirect.

“At iDirect, we are always looking for exceptional engineering talent, and we are thrilled to be opening a new Engineering and Innovation Centre right in the heart of Ireland, a country that is rich in talented, highly skilled technical engineers.”{/mprestriction}
