Ireland hosts much of the world-leading network, telecoms, cloud and data centre companies as well as the emerging Internet of Things space - these together represent the backbone infrastructure upon which networking services are deployed and maintained.

The growth in the network infrastructure is symbiotic with developments in virtualisation and cloud computing. This supports those companies who base their services upon this infrastructure.
