Edgeliot, a Dublin-based technology company, is working on the project with Cellnex, a Spanish telecoms infrastructure business – and if trials are successful here, there will be an opportunity to expand its services across Europe.

Edgeliot has developed technology that sits on telecommunications towers and monitors their movements. This can reveal when and where interruptions occur, while also predicting where breakages are at risk of happening.

“Providers want that real-time knowledge of what is happening with their towers so they can anticipate issues before they become a problem,” Gary McDarby, chief executive and founder of Edgeliot, told the Business Post. “Our system can look at data and tell the user over time about unusual events, creating a predictive indicator.”
