Ripplecom retains Engineers Ireland CPD Employer Accreditation

Ripplecom retains Engineers Ireland CPD Employer Accreditation

Ripplecom, the Limerick-based telecommunications company, has retained its status as a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Accredited Employer with Engineers Ireland until 2022.

A network of leading employers

The 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 is wholly committed to the continuing professional development of staff.” Ripplecom is the only telecoms operator to hold the standard.

Core expertise

Ripplecom provides connectivity, business continuity, voice and security services to a wide variety of business customers ranging from giant multinationals to native agribusinesses, financial institutions to manufacturing facilities. Chief Technical Officer, Denis Herlihy, explains that “Ripplecom keeps engineering at the core of our operations to ensure that the quality and integrity of our solutions is always exemplary.”

Engineering innovation: Orion by Ripplecom

In-house research and development by Ripplecom engineers resulted in the creation of Orion, a unique and innovative autofailover, selected as an IT Projects 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 IP addressing, even in a major outage. When connectivity is business-critical, Orion provides invaluable protection from the prohibitive costs of downtime.

Constant evolution

Ripplecom Managing Director, John McDonnell, commented, “Our business continuously evolves to keep pace with technology and with customer needs. Our people are the key drivers of this innovation. We are wholeheartedly committed to supporting their creativity and expertise through lifelong learning. The Engineers Ireland CPD framework is evidence of this and we very proud to be reaccredited.”
