Orion, the autofailover engineered in-house by telecommunications company, Ripplecom, has been named ‘IT Project of the Year’ for the SME sector at the 2018 Tech Excellence Awards. Fresh from this success, Ripplecom has launched a recruitment drive for IT channel partners to introduce Orion to their customers.
Ireland’s leading IT industry awards
Ireland’s Tech Excellence Awards celebrate transformational technology that delivers an outstanding operational and competitive advantage to companies nationwide. The annual prize giving, and black tie gala dinner, is the biggest social event in the tech business calendar with over 600 attending each year. The awards were adjudicated by respected industry experts including Eoin O’Driscoll (Tyndall National Institute), Dr Jim Mountjoy (Science Foundation Ireland) and Peter McManamon (Atlantic Bridge).
Perfect channel partner opportunity
Ripplecom’s award-winning entry focused on the value-added service the Orion autofailover brought to our channel partner, Radius Technologies, a busy IT services provider. Ripplecom and Radius have worked together to bring Orion’s maximum uptime to clients like Christ Church Cathedral, Rapid Cabs and ReproMed.
How Orion works for IT support companies
With more and more connected devices and a huge migration of critical applications to the cloud, Irish businesses have very little tolerance for downtime. Service disruptions due to network faults are outside of any IT company’s control but they still have an impact on customer trust. When a provider like Radius can guarantee their customers’ connectivity, they gain an outstanding market advantage. Operationally, Orion’s uptime, remote monitoring and automatic deployment translate into a huge cost saving for IT companies servicing their customers.
How Orion works for cloud service providers
As Radius knows, and any cloud-based services provider will discover, Orion is the perfect antidote for the cloud-shy. For most owners and managers tempted to make the move to the cloud, the fear of potential loss of service due to network outage is the biggest obstacle. Orion gives potential customers that additional peace of mind, clearing the path for providers to close the deal.
How Orion work works
Devised in-house by our engineers, Orion by Ripplecom is a clever, compact and cost-effective autofailover. Orion leverages our core and access network expertise to provide customers with two physically diverse WAN pipes to the internet with truly seamless automatic failover in the event of an outage. Continuing in the same IP stream makes the failover so seamless that customers are blissfully unaware that an outage has occurred. Watch how it works here.

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.
