Thanks to the exemption from the licence obligation that came into effect through the directive from PTS (Post och Tele Styrelsen) on the first of January 2015, it is now possible for everyone to build their own local mobile networks. A local mobile network contains all functionality that is required to make a mobile device work but is designed for the enterprise environment and can be cost efficiently deployed for as small networks as a mere 20 subscribers. While the alternative of mobile extension has become increasingly popular in the Swedish enterprise market there are still about 500.000 lines of DECT in service. Among the reasons for maintaining a DECT system are the requirement of autonomous operation without dependencies of the national operators, exclusive use for the staff only.
With the local mobile network those attributes are maintained but with the big added advantage that any mobile devise will work, from the most inexpensive GSM phone to the most advanced smart-phones, the latter allowing for the use of “Apps” tailored for the user, whether it be health care, retail or industrial applications.
Raemis (the name of Druid Software’s local mobile network) supports 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE radio. To date more than 400 local mobile networks have been deployed in Holland, the UK and now Sweden among them some 10 major hospitals, the largest with 5500 users making more than 32000 calls and sending more than 32000 SMS per day. The port authority of Rotterdam uses one local LTE network as a bearer for the communication for all their unmanned vehicles that transports containers in the port.
The seminar will cover the basics of local mobile networks, some of the typical use-cases and a live demonstration of Raemis.
Presenter is Peter Seybolt, Sales Director Northern Europe at Druid Software Ltd.
