There is no better use of mobile technology than for Emergency Alerts. Our customers have requested and even demanded LTE support on our Cell Broadcast systems which are already in use on CDMA, GSM, 3G and Wifi networks.

one2many, the world’s leading Cell Broadcast company, has today announced that it has successfully completed IOT for its LTE interface. The addition of SBc to its library of network interfaces enables mobile operators to extend Cell Broadcast services, like Emergency Alerts, to their next generation LTE networks.

Over 300 operators have committed to LTE, and the GSA (Global mobile Suppliers Association) expects to have 150 commercial LTE networks operating in 64 countries by end-2012. As LTE handsets become available in the market place, one2many’s customers have requested LTE support on their multi RAN technology CBC platforms. Cell Broadcast, a one-to-many textual broadcast technology, is standardized and available on 2G, 3G and now LTE. In addition, CB is the only standardized wireless technology for Emergency Alerts.

Cell Broadcast is being introduced worldwide as a next generation wireless Emergency Alert service and will continue to play a crucial role in public safety, allowing governments to make vital public announcements to millions of citizens, within seconds, on a location-aware basis, without violating subscriber privacy or being affected by network congestion. Some of the Public Warning initiatives around the world are: EU-Alert, ETWS and Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA – a part of CMAS) which was recently launched in the United States by the FCC and FEMA.

Maarten Mes, Managing Director of one2many, commented: “There is no better use of mobile technology than for Emergency Alerts. Our customers have requested and even demanded LTE support on our Cell Broadcast systems which are already in use on CDMA, GSM, 3G and Wifi networks. We are delighted to enable our customers to create a safer world for their subscribers.”
one2many provides Cell Broadcast technology to telecoms operators across the world. Cell Broadcast technology delivers a non-intrusive, real-time service for the distribution of text-based messages to mobile handsets, specific to their current location.
