Published on: 09/05/2023
PARIS, May 9, 2023 – ("Intersec" or the "Company"), a global leader in telecom metadata and location intelligence solutions, is emphasizing the critical importance of fully reliable Public Warning Systems (PWS) for Citizen Safety. Intersec’s commitment to operational excellence and user data protection has resulted in 25 new PWS references in just two years, covering 164 million additional citizens.
During the implementation phase, Intersec systematically conducts technical tests at a local, regional, and national scale in close collaboration with the competent authorities and mobile network operators, and the results have consistently been successful. The tests cover a wide range of scenarios to ensure the system can handle any potential issue.
“The successful nationwide test of the Cell Broadcast technology as part of the “Warntag” 2022 has proven the high performance of the alerting solution and the professionalism of the partner.” Jochen Bockfeld, Director Common Services of O₂Telefónica.
Operational excellence also plays a vital role in ensuring that citizens are kept informed in an appropriate way, without creating unnecessary panic or confusion. To prevent human and system errors, the Intersec PWS contains a comprehensive set of protective measures:
Layers of CAP-enabled user authentication, validation mechanisms
System resilience and redundancy measures guaranteed by multiple data centers
Ongoing platform health checks that alert administrators to any potential issues before they cause a disruption
“France has chosen the most sophisticated and comprehensive system, involving all the operators, supplemented by location-based SMS. And it is this combination that gives France one of the most effective systems in Europe.”, Pierre-André Durand, French Prefect
By selecting Intersec, both governments and mobile operators have the assurance that they can depend on not only reliable technology but also advanced situational awareness features. The platform approach is also cited as an asset as users can seamlessly implement additional use cases, such as emergency call handling on the government side, and data monetization on the operator side.
