Catalyst Inc is one of Northern Ireland’s success stories, with over 3,000 engineers, researchers, entrepreneurs and executives working in their campuses in Belfast, Derry/Londonderry and Ballymena, across eight large office buildings.
By providing a fully managed data networks, Internet & telecoms for Catalyst and its tenant companies enables ‘business ready’ turnkey hubs, with critical data and voice infrastructure supported by Atlas, all built into a package. This provides a high quality built environment & infrastructure that enables tenant companies to focus on knowledge-based entrepreneurialism.
As Catalyst has grown Atlas have worked with them to build a single virtual campus infrastructure combining data and voice services. This allows tenant companies to easily move between campuses & access services regardless of location. Catalyst tenants range from one-entrepreneur companies through to global multi-nationals and Atlas have been able to provide services to meet these vastly differing needs.
Mervyn Watley, Director of Corporate Real Estate and Facilities at Catalyst, explained “The managed infrastructure provided by Atlas helps us to support our community of innovators and allows them to focus on growing their business without the worry of sourcing & managing these critical voice & data services. Over the years we have built up a great relationship with the team at Atlas and they have always been able to meet all our requirements as we continue to grow and develop as a company.”
