Farmington Hills, MI – May 26, 2020 – Druid Software, in collaboration with RF Connect and CommScope, has deployed a CBRS enabled OnGo Private 4G wireless network at Memorial Health Systems in Springfield, Illinois. The network provides secure, reliable connectivity to temporary triage and testing tents where doctors and nurses deliver emergency care during the COVID-19 outbreak. The CBRS enabled OnGo Private 4G wireless network can be set up quickly and accessed for dedicated data for healthcare staff who are working from tents or other facilities on the hospital grounds.
