Druid Software 5G/4G core technologies enable Federated Wireless to design small, portable, AWS Snowcone edge device solutions

Founded in 2000 and based near Dublin, Ireland, Druid has grown to become a global leader in 5G, 4G, 3G, and 2G core network technology. The company has built its reputation on developing cellular network products for enterprise and custom mobile technology design and development services. Druid Software is now a core cellular network software company, and the Druid “Raemis” application has been deployed on some of the largest private network sites in the world. Druid offers a wide range of solutions covering Enterprise Communications, IoT Cellular Technology, Mobile Edge Computing, Public Safety, and more.

Recently, Druid Software successfully supported partners Federated Wireless — a pioneer in CBRS, OnGo shared spectrum technology — in their latest testing with Amazon Web Services (AMS) Snowcone devices for edge computing using 3.5Ghz CBRS (Citizens Broadband Radio Spectrum) spectrum in the United States. Snowcone is the smallest of the AWS Snow Family of edge computing devices. It is used for edge storage and data transfer and is ideal for use outside of a traditional data center with its ruggedized, secure, and purpose-built design.

According to Druid CEO, Liam Kenny, the company’s ability to scale down a complete 5G and 4G cellular core network to run on a very small, portable device make the collaboration a perfect fit for tight spaces or where portability is a necessity. Applications can include uses such as within the backpacks of first responders or IoT, vehicular, and even drone applications. Snowcone is designed for data migration needs up to dozens of terabytes (with up to 8 terabytes per device) and from space-constrained environments where AWS Snowball devices will not fit.

“Federated Wireless is a very innovative partner,” said Kenny. “It’s great to work with their team on another CBRS opportunity for Industry with this ideal edge computing device.”

Druid Software’s ability to develop and integrate leading business process applications with its dedicated coverage solutions is a key advantage. These applications are often essential to enterprises in vertical segments like Public Utilities, Healthcare, Transport, Manufacturing, Hospitality, Security and Public Safety/Emergency services, etc.

“Druid’s ability to deliver an MEC+ experience where they have scaled their Raemis 5G/4G core platform down to run on one the smallest devices in the AWS Snow family, is a great example of the agility and the ease of management and control of their core platform,” said Iyad Tarazi, President and CEO of Federated Wireless.

Druid’s portfolio includes enterprise-scale implementations of all network elements needed to run and operate a 5G/4G/3G/2G Private Cellular Networks. Virtual deployments are supported, and the technology can be hosted and delivered as a service.

“For almost twenty years, Druid has been implementing innovative mobile edge computing solutions to deliver the next generation of wireless broadband services,” said Michael Morgenstern, Enterprise Ireland SVP of Industrial Technologies. “We’re proud to support Druid in their work to make cellular networks more secure, efficient, and effective for a wide range of connectivity applications.”
