Taoiseach announces 60 new jobs with Cubic Telecom
Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Jobs Minister Mary Mitchell O'Connor today announced the creation of 60 jobs at connectivity platform provider, Cubic Telecom.
In their new partnership Cubic Telecom and Audi are bringing the first connected cars to Ireland and are promoting connected services across Europe through one SIM card specially installed into each Audi model, thereby creating an in-car Wi-Fi hotspot.
The SIM card allows 100Mbps high-speed internet access on the road, letting drivers and passengers avail of online services including Google Street View, traffic and parking information, and a range of infotainment features, including email, calendar and social media integration.
Speaking at the jobs announcement, the Taoiseach said:
Cubic Telecom is a brilliant example of an Irish company excelling on the world stage, and its partnership with a global brand like Audi is further testament to this. This announcement is yet more evidence that the Irish economy remains productive and innovative and our indigenous tech sector is growing from strength to strength.
Minister Mitchell O'Connor said:
Today’s jobs announcement by Cubic Telecom is very welcome. Cubic is a prominent and important Irish owned software company that is leading in its sector. Cubic Telecom’s expansion is a testament to the growing skilled Irish workforce. Ireland is fast becoming an international leader in business and a world-class innovator in some of the technology sector’s most exciting and disruptive new fields. The government with Enterprise Ireland will continue to support Cubic Telecom as it grows and develops global partnerships, cementing its position as leading the way in the area of in-vehicle connectivity. I wish Cubic and their team the very best for their bright future.
