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.
“We’re excited to formally join TCCA after attending and exhibiting at their events for a number of years,” said 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, 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.
