Irish Software Co's to Attend GSMA 

Large Contingent of Enterprise Ireland's Software Clients to Participate in World's Leading Mobile Tech Trade Fair



ENTERPRISE_IRELAND_Jennifer_Condon.jpgAccording to Enterprise Ireland seventy of Ireland's most innovative technology firms are to participate in GSMA Mobile World Congress 2011 next week, the world's largest mobile technology trade fair.



With 50,000 senior mobile leaders from 200 countries, the Barcelona congress is a critical event for Irish mobile technology companies as it can be the starting point for several significant new contracts and partnership agreements. Enterprise Ireland will have a stand at the show highlighting Ireland's mobile technologies capabilities with 25 of their clients exhibiting and 45 visiting the GSM Mobile World Congress.



Speaking ahead of the event, Jennifer Condon, Enterprise Ireland's Head of Software said: "This year's GSMA Mobile World Congress takes place as the mobile ecosystem enters the midst of an unprecedented wave of transformation. With technology evolving and perceptions shifting, the mobile Internet is as influential as the fixed Internet one decade ago.


The Irish mobile technology industry is young, innovative and punches well above its weight compared to the size of the country. Irish mobile companies have already proven themselves by selling innovative products and service to global telecoms companies. The Irish firms participating in this event will be launching innovative products and services to address this next generation mobile eco system."



Some of the key companies exhibiting on the Enterprise Ireland stand at Mobile GSM include:


  • GOS Networks, which assists operators to deliver and charge for video and other data intensive content to smartphones. Network congestion is a big problem as smartphones become more popular.
  • Zapa Technologies, an NFC (Near Field Communications) company, is closing the gap in the very new and hot area of social commerce with their mobile couponing technology enabling retailers to redeem virtual coupons as a physical transaction.
  • Altobridge is a Tralee-based company that brings connectivity to rural areas and has had particular success in the booming African market. Altobridge is also short listed for a Global Mobile Award in the category "Best Mobile Technology for Emerging Markets".
  • Solaris Mobile Ltd, the Dublin based operator of hybrid satellite and terrestrial wireless networks will be showing how their service enables the provision of mobile broadband and broadcast services allowing access to rich media content. This allows media-hungry consumers to access interactive services such as video on demand and audio content, when and where they want, directly to their smart phone and other mobile devices.



Other Enterprise Ireland clients will also be exhibiting on their own stands including Ezetop, Feedhenry, Newbay and Openet.
