Public Protection & Disaster Relief (PPDR) communications refer to radio applications that are designed for security, public safety and defence purposes. National authorities or operators put these solutions to use to respond to disasters and emergency situations and to ensure that citizens are given advice on how to stay safe.

The European Commission has released a new directive that requires all member states to ensure that sufficient provisions are available for public safety and protection using a mobile communications infrastructure.

The Importance of Using a PPDR solution

Telecommunication is critical at all the different levels of disaster management. PPDR services help to get the message out quickly and to as many people as possible. At Intersec, we provide a national population alerting system that uses existing mobile infrastructure to get emergency messages out to all mobile phone users, including those with 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G devices. We would be delighted to tell you more about the solutions we have available and how efficient they are in alerting citizens in a disaster.

Benefits of Using Our PPDR Solution

There are many benefits to using our PPDR. These include:

  • The ability to distribute accurate emergency warnings to citizens
  • The ability to coordinate communication with first response teams for fast and efficient deployment during a disaster
  • The ability to send messages to users in their preferred language - this ensures that all tourists and visitors will receive the message in a way they can understand
  • Have access to analysis data to see how messages have been received and the effectiveness of response times and teams

By June 2022, it will be mandatory for all EU member states to deploy an emergency warning system that uses mobile technology to sound the alert. Our solution will ensure that you fulfill the directive before the deadline and that you have an effective means of sending out emergency messages should a disaster strike.

Why Mobile Is The Perfect PPDR Solution

When choosing a PPDR solution, distribution over mobile phone makes perfect sense. With most people these days carrying a mobile phone, these devices are the most ubiquitous means of communication. Users will receive a message over SMS or cell broadcast depending on your requirements and will receive the message within seconds of it being sent. Our solutions ensure messages are received by all devices including 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G devices. Messages will also be delivered in the user’s preferred language so that all tourists and visitors receive and understand the message. Location based SMS allows for 2-way communication allowing for authorities
