Druid Software signs with CBRS specialist CTS on private 5G managed service bundle
Massachusetts-based telecoms infrastructure provider Communication Technology Services (CTS) is working with core network provider Druid Software to bundle the Irish firm’s Raemis platform into its private LTE/5G offer in the US. CTS is offering a managed private LTE/5G service to enterprises leveraging the Citizens Band Radio Services (CBRS) band.
CTS will use Raemis with its own Total Traffic Manager solution for monitoring data traffic on private LTE and 5G networks. The combination will enables enterprises to have “complete control of their networks” by allocating network resources by user group, applications, or protocol, the pair said.
They suggested the combined setup will enable enterprises to optimise and monitor private cellular networks for demanding IoT use cases, including IP security cameras, mission-critical voice services, autonomous guided vehicles, and industrial sensors. These will be able to “operate at peak performance”, they said.
A statement said: “CTS is building on [the] Raemis open architecture software platform, which enables enterprises to maximize the use of network resources and service flexibility. Raemis is a 5G core technology that was made specifically for… high priority business applications and mission-critical communications.
“[Its] network slicing capabilities allow for separation of user groups, traffic balancing, and quality-of-service on the radio access network using separate packet data networks.”
Rob Cerbone, vice president of product management at CTS, said: “The addition of Druid’s software… ensures we can provide a unique, high performing 4G and 5G mobile network solution to customers of all sizes at a competitive price point.”
Tadhg Kenny, senior vice president of marketing at Druid Software, said: “CTS’s experience and ability to put together innovative business and mission critical solutions using 5G and 4G private networks, like the recent partnership with Tassta for mission critical push-to-talk services, will lead to important efficiency gains for enterprise customers.”
