Diarmuid O'Briain joins our technical operations team

In November 2016, Diarmuid Ó'Briain, a lecturer at Makerere University, joined our team as Technical Operations Manager in order to help us address a significant human resource shortage which arose as a result of increased demand for our services.

Diarmuid is a Chartered Engineer with over 25 years experience in the sector. He previously worked as an engineering manager at multinational networking and telecommunications companies including US Robotics, 3Com, and UTStarcom where he designed and implemented next-generation networks and information security solutions for several clients, and was instrumental in the design and support for NGN solutions for carriers around the EMEA region.

His most recent role prior to arriving in Uganda in 2015 was Chief Technology Officer at Ripple Communications, an Irish Internet service provider, where he developed the core network and managed the design and delivery of fibre and licensed radio back-haul infrastructure for their national-scale access network.

Today he teaches Networking, Information Security, and Wireless Technologies at the Makerere College of Engineering, Design, Art, and Technology and is an active member of the Uganda Institute of Professional Engineers (UIPE).
