A Welsh software company is opening a new Belfast office, creating 10 well-paid jobs.

Simulity Labs has established a new software engineering centre in the city.

The business specialises in embedded communications software and other server-based applications, including SIM card software for mobile phones.

Simulity has a worldwide customer base, serving more than 45 mobile network operators.

It also has a number of other offices, including Wales, Kuala Lumpur and Cape Town.

Invest NI has put £65,000 towards the new jobs, which are expected to generate £440,000 each year in salaries.

Stephane Fund, chief executive of Simulity Labs, said: "During our search for talented people, Invest NI impressed us with their calibre of candidates and their vision for the future of Northern Ireland.

"We are very happy to have agreed an ongoing relationship with Invest NI, and we have found over the past four months that the quality of recruits available in Belfast is exceptional."

And Bill Montgomery, Invest NI's director of international investment, said: "Simulity Labs is a young business with high growth potential and is a valuable addition to the growing cluster of software development investors choosing to locate in Northern Ireland."
