About us

At Aspire Technology, we have a culture of professionalism, innovation, and partnership. Established in Ireland in 2010, founder Bill Walsh identified the market need for end-to-end Software Solutions, Network Services, Consulting, and more recently the establishment of the Aspire OpenRAN Lab, for mobile network operators, managed service providers and technology partners. Though still proudly Irish, Aspire now delivers solutions in over 25 countries, with an expert team of network engineers and project managers.

Our expertise, software, and unique solutions allow us to deliver the connected world on any network, anywhere, for any client.
