The National Software Centre is a landmark development in the context of Ireland and the EU, offering World Class Broadband Infrastructure and Third Generation Offices in Cork. The project is a privately led venture via a public private partnership. The fundamental thrust is to create a global footprint for knowledge based ventures through using innovative networking technologies.
The NSC Campus was designed specifically for IT and service companies with flexibility and scalability in mind. The facility features best of breed security with 24x7 access to tenants. It operates a fresh Air Handling System and a Voice over IP Telephony System, with a centrally manned reception desk. The facility also provides Virtual Offices and Virtual Office Services.
The NSC Campus hosts the Network Operations Centre in Cork for the 60km Cork City MAN (48/96 pair fibre ring Metropolitan Area Network) which launched in January 2004.
The local vicinity of the NSC has seen the extensive development in recent years including a new shopping complex, numerous residential complexes and extensive office complexes bringing companies like Quest, Big Fish Games, Version1 to the area. This location coupled with its close proximity to the national road network, 2 minutes from the South Ring Road, 10-15 minutes from Cork International Airport and InterCity Rail station allows employees to commute to and from work with limited traffic.
Recently the NSC celebrated its 10 year anniversary with Minister Simon Coveney TD and Micheál Martin TD in attendance to celebrate the auspicious occasion. Please see www.nsc-campus.com for more information.
