Lim­er­ick-based firm 4site, which builds and de­signs tele­coms in­fra­struc­ture, has been co-opted on to the FTTH (fi­bre-to-the-home) Coun­cil of Europe.

Af­ter ESB-Voda­fone joint ven­ture Siro, 4site is only the sec­ond Ir­ish firm to be ac­cepted by the coun­cil, which pro­motes the roll­out of fi­bre broad­band in Europe.

The com­pany, which em­ploys 80 staff and whose clients in­clude Voda­fone, Siro, Cig­nal, Ci­tyFi­bre Huawei, 2RN, Three and Nokia, has re­cently in­vested €250,000 in de­vel­op­ing a “fi­bre cen­tre of ex­cel­lence” in Lim­er­ick, which brings to­gether de­sign­ers, sur­vey and plan­ning en­gi­neers.

The firm is rolling out a num­ber of high-pro­file fi­bre projects, in­clud­ing one with Ci­tyFi­bre, the UK’s lead­ing al­ter­na­tive provider of whole­sale fi­bre in­fra­struc­ture.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Ian Dug­gan said: “As only the sec­ond Ir­ish com­pany to be a mem­ber of the FTTH Coun­cil of Europe, we are de­lighted to be part of the ecosys­tem de­liv­er­ing fi­bre to the premises across Europe, sup­port­ing our key cus­tomers and con­tin­u­ing to ex­plore new op­por­tu­ni­ties.”
