Ripplecom: Engineers Ireland CPD Employer Accreditation retained
10 April 2019
Ripplecom's CPD committee proudly present the company's Engineers Ireland accreditations. L-R: John McDonnell, managing director; Denis Herlihy, chief technical officer; Adrian Carroll, network operations manager and Kevin Long, customer service manager.
Ripplecom, the Limerick-based telecoms operator, has retained its status as a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Accredited Employer with Engineers Ireland until 2022. The company is the only telecoms operator in Ireland to hold the standard.
Ripplecom provides connectivity, business continuity, voice and security services. The company works extensively with engineering practices, designing networks with maximum performance and availability to support increasingly technologically advanced working practices.
The company is also closely aligned with the construction sector, offering connections for greenfield sites with rapid deployment and flexible contracts.
In-house research and development by Ripplecom engineers resulted in the creation of Orion, a unique and innovative autofailover, selected as an IT Project of the Year at the Tech Excellence Awards 2018.
Using clever configuration and diverse network connections, Orion keeps companies connected to all vital applications, on the same public IP address, even in the event of a major outage.
When connectivity is business-critical, Orion provides invaluable protection from the prohibitive costs of downtime. The engineering team have also built their own hosted voice platform with the latest corporate PBX features: Spica by Ripplecom is just launching onto the Irish market.
The Engineers Ireland CPD programme is an immense support to Ripplecom as it evolves to keep pace with technology and customer needs.
Managing director John McDonnell said: “Our people are the key drivers of our constant innovation. We are wholeheartedly committed to supporting their knowledge and expertise through lifelong learning.
“The Engineers Ireland CPD framework is a great structure to encourage this and we very proud to be reaccredited.” Ripplecom has been an accredited employer since 2012.”
Network of leading employers
The Engineers Ireland accreditation is the national CPD standard for engineering-led employers across the biomedical, pharmaceutical, construction, engineering consultancy, energy, ICT, manufacturing, utility and public sectors.
Caroline Spillane, director general of Engineers Ireland, describes accredited employers as a “network of leading organisations, indigenous and multinational, which are wholly committed to the continuing professional development of staff”.
Ripplecom encourages companies to engage our engineering consultancy, experience and expertise to identify how telecommunications can best serve both their long-term strategy and immediate needs.
