Limerick’s St. Patrick’s Festival 2018 takes place from Friday 16 – Monday 19 March and Ripplecom has the best seat in the city!
Live stream of Limerick
Raheen-based telecommunications company, Ripplecom, is now live streaming a bird’s eye view of Limerick on our website: ripplecom.net/limerick-live-stream. Taking in King John’s Castle, St Mary’s Cathedral and Shannon Rowing Club, the webcam is already capturing an impressive scene over the city to the countryside beyond. This bank holiday weekend, however, things are set to get really exciting.
Get ready for fireworks
Billed as a “dazzling end to the celebrations”, from Sunday night (18th March) at 9pm, the walls of King John’s Castle will be transformed by a specially commissioned illumination followed by dramatic fireworks. Clancy’s Strand and Sarsfield Bridge are listed as the viewing points to head for, so with the webcam overlooking both, Ripplecom hopes to share the spectacular with anyone not able to make the show in person.
The webcam is live streaming from one of the high sites that makes up Ripplecom’s carrier grade national network. With over 300 network and relay sites, the company owns and operates the country’s largest, independent radio network. Ripplecom combines this radio reach with a meshed dual core centre and multiple fibre backhaul links, all built to deliver maximum availability and reliability to their customers.
Scaling new heights
The prevalence of high sites in the Ripplecom network means that talented riggers are a hugely important part of the team. John McDonnell, Managing Director of Ripplecom, explains, “Our Field Team is literally scaling new heights to connect business nationwide. It is very skilled and precise work, with obvious risks and dangers, and the team are highly trained. The perks of the job include the magnificent views and the chance to see the world from a perspective that most of us, with our feet on the ground, never get. With the webcam, we are bringing a little of that magic to the public.”

What impressed me most, was the proactive approach of the Ripplecom team to listen and quickly understand our business requirements and then, structure a solution that was tailored specifically for us. The Ripplecom staff including the sales, engineering and support teams were skilled and competent and delivered a telephony solution that met the needs of our business. At all times during the procurement process, it was more like the development of a long term business to business relationship, rather than a one-off transactional event. We look forward to growing this business to business relationship as each of our businesses grow in the future.
Ripplecom's connectivity solutions have helped us roll out a number of initiatives concerning internet, mobile and cloud technologies. We would now view Ripplecom as a key enabler to our business and a key strategic partner with respect to our long term ICT strategy.
Ripplecom provided a dedicated point to point licensed radio link to our remote North Cork location. The project management and flow of information throughout the installation process was extremely professional and efficient. This dedicated link is essential to the growth of our business and the running of our key day to day applications, e.g. phones, call centre, data, truck tracking and billing.
