Thursday 18 May 2023 – Druid Software has joined TCCA, the global member-led organisation working for the advancement of critical communications – based in Ireland, Druid was established in 2000 and has evolved into one of the world’s leaders in Private 5G & 4G cellular technology with its Raemis™ platform, a mature, 3GPP compliant core network which supports 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G as well as integration with wifi.
Raemis is a set of cellular software assets originally crafted by Druid’s engineers and optimised for business use cases, harnessing 5G, 4G, 3G, 2G and Wifi radios from any vendor to implement standalone cellular core network solutions. It also integrates with mobile network operators using standard interfaces giving access to all the radio resources of these operators.
This means public safety users can take advantage of more than one radio network at a time to deliver their services, improving the coverage footprint and building in resilience to single operator failures. Druid’s Raemis platform also enables first responders to create instant emergency mobile networks allowing citizens to resume mobile communications and call friends and family in affected areas. It also opens up capabilities for first responder communications including push to talk, video and telemetry, and further enables search and rescue to locate injured citizens by locating their mobile devices.
Druid’s Raemis platform can be installed on portable toughened platforms designed for either vehicular or battery powered backpack deployment. Raemis is a complete standalone solution that includes management, provisioning and reporting in a single software platform that can be deployed on a variety of commercially available hardware platforms. From power-up, the application can be in services serving users in less than five minutes and users can be configured and managed locally via an onboard GUI.
“We’re excited to formally join TCCA after attending and exhibiting at their events for a number of years,” commented Raymond Valk from Druid’s CTO team. “Their principle of open and competitive markets worldwide as well as their promotion of interoperability aligns perfectly with Druid’s values. We’ve been in the mission critical communications industry for over 20 years so we bring a lot of experience to TCCA, but we’re looking forward to strengthening our relationships within the ecosystem that are currently advancing mission critical comms”.
As well as public safety applications, for enterprises Druid’s solution delivers business critical mobile communications services in combination with a leading-edge user device. In addition, the technology is used to connect a myriad of mobile or remote autonomous devices to business applications for the IoT.
“We are delighted to welcome Druid Software to our global member community and look forward to the significant experience and expertise they can contribute across our mission-critical industries,” said TCCA CEO Kevin Graham. “It’s great to have them also attending Critical Communications World in Helsinki next week where delegates will have the opportunity to meet their team and understand more about their capability, solutions and representation internationally.”
Druid will be attending Critical Communications World 2023 on May 23 – May 25 so reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to arrange a meeting.
About Druid Software
Druid Software is a cellular core network software company based in Ireland. Established in 2000, Druid has evolved into one of the world’s leaders in Private 5G & 4G Cellular technology. Druid’s Raemis™ platform is a mature, 3GPP compliant core network which supports 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G as well as integration with wifi. Raemis is not a core network that has been stripped back for use in private networks – it was built for the enterprise with unique features designed specifically for business and mission critical use. Raemis components are engineered from the ground up with a built-in API, which exposes the internal state of the platform using a HTTP API based on REST principles. This makes Druid solutions very easy to integrate with external enterprise applications and enables a dynamic best-in-class user interface to Druid’s solutions. Druid’s technology enables solutions in different areas including, but not limited to: Enterprise Communications, IoT, Mobile Edge Computing, Neutral Host and Public Safety. Raemis is RAN vendor agnostic, which means it can be deployed in any private network use case. Find out more about Druid’s solutions for private networks here.
