The TSSG group was founded in 1996 within Waterford Institute of Technology. Since then, it has grown into a large research centre (over 35 active projects, nearly 40 completed projects, 115 active staff and students 1996-2006). This makes the WIT-TSSG unique in the Irish research landscape, as it has a very high level trans-disciplinary view of the communications services space, linking the science of the key basic research questions with the engineering expertise to create innovative prototype solutions in collaboration with mainly European partners, and combining all this with the entrepreneurial business vision to exploit a range of commercial opportunities that result.

Our core expertise focuses on telecoms networks, security and mobile services.
