It has been announced that Dublin’s soon-to-be tallest office building, the Exo, has been awarded the highest rating for connectivity, achieving a ‘Wired Certified Platinum’ rating from Wiredscores.
Dublin is a strong tech hub, with many of the world’s top technology companies residing there. This news, as a result, is unsurprising – connectivity is the key to successful business growth and continued innovation, and is a reason why so many of these technology companies have come to Dublin and Ireland more generally. For example, in 2014 Yahoo moved its EMEA HQ to The Point Square, which accommodates over 375 employees.
This is why Information Age chose Dublin as the location for our inaugural Women in IT Awards Ireland.
Connectivity key for digital future
Wired Certification is an examination of the connectivity of office buildings, with criteria points covering Wi-Fi strength, wayleave agreements and cable pathways.
A strong Wired Certification – in this case, Platinum – ensures the building is future proofed for continued further development of the digital infrastructure, which is an increasingly important consideration for occupiers in the current market.

As reported in Irish Tech News, the Exo (situated at Point Square, beside the 3 Arena on Dublin’s north docks) is one of only three Irish office buildings currently available to lease on the market to achieve the rating. Notable features that led to it securing this accreditation include;
• Universal communication chamber enabling faster cabling installation.
• Larger telecom ducts.
• Three communication risers for flexibility
• Backup generator for building and space for private occupier generator.
• Fibre infrastructure.
