His Excellency Kevin Kelly, Irish Ambassador to the Netherlands, joins Corning, CapX, Avics and Druid for signing of agreement to deliver highly secure, scalable, wireless data technology solutions for Dutch healthcare

Amsterdam, Netherlands, Thursday 22nd November 2018 – Our dutch distributor CapX Nederlands BV and our elderly care channel partner Avics BV  come together to deliver the latest private 4G technology from Druid and Corning for more secure, scalable, dedicated data solutions for Dutch Healthcare.

In mission critical environments like Healthcare and elderly care, Druids core software application in combination with Corning’s Spidercloud small cells provide scalable dedicated wireless data, with easy integration of the latest Nurse Call applications & auto location technology.

“Druid’s private network guarantees staff a quality of service (QoS), using any cellular device for data, messaging, and voice services anywhere on the campus outside or in building on a dedicated cellular network controlled and managed easily by the staff” says Mark Schuring, Engineering Manager at Avics.

The Druid application effectively turns the cellular device into a pager, location tracking device and nurse call delivery and reporting tool. Some of Druids larger hospital installations deliver over 10 million critical staff calls a year and have been the technology of choice for many years now in the Netherlands for dedicated wireless coverage.

Tadhg Kenny, SVP of Business development at Druid said “While our software application plays an essential part in providing the best dedicated quality mobile coverage available today, it is our local technology partners in each market and their ability to execute excellence in radio planning and integration with the latest business process applications that completes the solution. Their ability to integrate the Druid “Raemis” application with the latest Nurse call ensures the end customers reap the benefits and efficiencies these environments cannot do without.”

Paul van Gasselt, CEO of CapX Nederland said “The deal we are signing today with Avics, Druid and Corning is a significant mile stone for CapX. We are working on some very exciting projects where Druids private networks will play a key role in delivering the latest private 4G/5G networks with our various radio partners.

We feel Druid have the best cellular core software application on the market. However, it is their commitment and support which is just as important in helping CapX and our system integrators, like Avics deliver the best quality wireless network coverage.”

“Some of Druids key competitors” van Gasselt continues “are based in the UK. With the uncertainty surrounding Brexit it is critical for us that Druid are an Irish company, and that we are dealing with a company that remains within the Euro Zone.”

Tim Garfoot, VP of Sales Europe for Spidercloud Wireless said “Our partnership with Druid goes way back and extends from Europe now to the US. With channel partners like Avics who are highly skilled wireless solution providers, this mile stone is a very important one for us in the Benelux region. Our small cell solution is ideal for the Avics business model and has been tried and tested for years in these types of critical environments.”
