At Intersec, we understand mobile population alerts and how to help authorities to get emergency alerts out quickly and reliably. Whether you need to alert an entire population or specific regions, we put you in complete control. Our solutions can be tailored to suit your needs and focus on sending out messages over a mobile communications network. It makes sense to use this method when you consider how many people carry mobile phones with them every day. Our solutions flash up the warning message within seconds helping your citizens to get to safety or to take evasive action.
We would be delighted to speak to you about your requirements for a mobile population alerts system. Where Cell Broadcast was once the medium of choice for sending out warning messages, SMS is now becoming the preferred conduit as it offers more granular control and doesn’t require a service to be set up or sit running in the background and draining battery life. SMS is also pretty much device agonistic and can be received on 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G devices.
A new directive was passed in December 2018 in the European Electronic Communication Code that stipulates that all European members must have a mobile-based public warning system in place by June 2022. Our solution is compliant with this directive, and will ensure that you can get the message out to your citizens as quickly as possible even if you need to send a message to millions of people in one go.
Historically, authorities have used siren, radio, TV and more recently, cell broadcast to sound the alert. Today with more and more people using mobile phones and the threat landscape growing year on year, there is the need for a more reliable method of communication. Location based SMS allows for an SMS to be sent to every mobile phone resulting in receipt by up to 98% of mobile phone users.
What’s more, SMS allows for two-way communication allowing for delivery receipts to be sent back and users to communicate with authorities. Data monitoring on the back end will give authorities insights into how to plan and distribute emergency resources and to ensure the message was received by as many people as possible. It is one of the most reliable means of mobile population alerts available today.
At Intersec, we have years of experience in mobile communications solutions and public warning systems. We would be delighted to tell you more about our solutions and how we can help you to send out emergency alerts that protect your citizens and help them to get to safety as quickly as possible. We can also tell you more about the latest EECC directive and how you can ensure that you are fully compliant and ready for the deadline in June 2022. Speak to our team today to find out more.
