WICKLOW, IRELAND and DALLAS, TEXAS – February 22, 2022 – Druid Software, the leading provider of private cellular network core software solutions for the enterprise, today announced a partnership with Polte, innovator of Cloud Location over Cellular (C-LoC) technology, to enable global location for enterprise 4G/5G private networks. This collaboration will address the challenges of security, accuracy, and seamless cellular continuity between private and macro networks globally for Massive IoT, Critical IoT and Broadband IoT positioning use cases. Together, Druid Software and Polte will package this patented location capability as a function of the LMF (Location Management Function) on the Druid Raemis core platform, providing unparalleled location intelligence to enterprises and the systems integrators that serve them.

The Druid Raemis core platform is a 3GPP compliant 4G/5G core network with unique features designed specifically for enterprise critical communications. For example, the platform is differentiated by its ability to easily prioritize and “slice” devices while providing them with a guaranteed quality of service. Interoperability with any small cell RAN vendor, with 25x 5G small cells tested with Raemis to date, gives partners greater options to choose from indoor or outdoor specialists. Raemis scales up as easily as it scales down, enabling the setup of small or very large private networks.
Raemis can be deployed on edge hardware devices or in high dependency cloud native environments. This flexibility is key for certain highly resilient mobile use cases or customers who do not want their data on the public cloud. Built on open REST API, Raemis provides easy integration to enterprise critical applications and makes private networks simple to use and manage with a user-friendly dashboard.
Polte has partnered with Druid Software to produce the location component of the 3GPP compliant LMF for 5G as well as ESMLC (Enhanced Serving Mobile Location Center) for 4G, which in turn equips the Druid Raemis core platform with Polte’s unique, patented C-LoC technology and thereby making it “Powered by Polte.” Polte and Druid Software’s collaboration to provide a Powered by Polte core will facilitate the adoption of location applications for 4G/5G private networks. As the leading provider of cellular location, Polte simply leverages cloud computing and cellular infrastructure completely over the top of carriers to supply secure, accurate, global location for all devices on a network, indoors and outdoors.
With 5G Precise Positioning, Polte provides sub-meter level accuracy indoors within a private network, extending to sub-3 meters accuracy outdoors as it seamlessly continues coverage onto the macro network. This yields enhanced, scalable location intelligence for assets on the move across a wide variety of verticals, creating a host of new use cases for transportation and logistics, healthcare, Industry 4.0 and more.
“Our enterprise customers invest in private networks for greater security, speed, and control in their operations,” Druid Software CEO Liam Kenny said. “The enablement of accurate, real-time location anywhere you need it is a revolutionary value add that allows uninterrupted visibility of assets even after they leave the premises.”
“A rigid compound of traditional location technologies such as GPS, Wi-Fi or BLE no longer meets the evolving needs of enterprises,” Polte CEO Ed Chao said. “Systems integrators and enterprises can unlock the full potential of 4G/5G positioning through this rapid, flexible deployment of ‘everywhere’ location.”
Polte and Druid Software plan to proceed with global Proof of Concept testing, focusing first on Industry 4.0 use cases, while bringing to market the best cellular location capability with pioneering 5G LMF and industry leading ESMLC.
