The primary components in a Self Managed Cell (SMC) -- the event bus, the policy management service, and the discovery service -- are required regardless of the scale of the SMC. However, the behaviour of core services may necessarily be altered to suit the environment within which an SMC operates. This paper discusses the design of core services (primarily, the event bus and discovery service) in wide- area SMCs. Delay-tolerant networking between SMCs is also discussed, as is the implementation of core services leading to an emulated network of SMCs. As the basis for a ``healthmap' capable of representing patient data across a geographic region, the discussion on wide-area SMCs leads into cursory discussion of geographical imaging and visualisation systems.
