Already present in many U.S. army locations, the Desktop Alert Emergency Mass Notification System (EMNS) platform has expanded further by making an entry into Fort Bragg, where several airborne units of the U.S. Army are stationed.
Regarded as a leading provider of IP communications based mass notification to the U.S. Army worldwide, the Desktop Alert EMNS enables command post/operations to support alerts sent directly to desktop PCs and more, according to company officials.
The system currently provides alerting for e-mail, phone calls, mobile texting and desktop pop-up to workstations and is expected to integrate PA/Giant Voice and security systems in the near future.
"We are honored by the selection at Fort Bragg. Our EMNS provides Army locations with Full Operational Capability for mass notification systems to meet the Ft. Hood Secretary of Defense requirements,” said Howard Ryan, chief research and development at Desktop Alert Inc.
According to Ryan, Desktop Alert is the undisputed leader in providing mass notification capabilities to the United States Army and this leadership position within the army would be further extended in 2012.
Found to be in keeping with the Ft. Hood report which has a 2014 deadline for compliance, Desktop Alert EMNS was recently introduced at Fort Hood. It was selected for Fort Bragg also after a full and thorough review of all approved U.S. Army EMNS vendors.
As of now, the highly affordable Desktop Alert EMNS system is said to have more than one million users and affords protection to army personnel stationed at nearly 75 installations and organizations. It is emerging as the U.S. Army preferred EMNS of choice.
The U.S. Air National Guard deployment of the Desktop Alert Mass Notification Platform has been completed nationwide. It also boasts the most complete solution for Cisco (News - Alert) UC infrastructure available currently on the market
In other industry news, AireSpring (News - Alert) – a leading IP communications provider – recently sat down with TMCnet to discuss how the company has grown and transformed over the last 11 years to keep one step ahead of the competition.
“AireSpring actually started as a BlackBerry (News - Alert) service provider meaning that the company went from being a wireless service provider to a long distance reseller to a managed service provider and carrier in 11 years,” AireSpring’s Senior Vice President of Marketing Todd Regan told TMCnet.
“Today, AireSpring is a managed services provider and a carrier and we do the vast majority of our business on our own next generation IP network rather than reselling other,” he added. “Well over 60 percent of our business is on the AireSpring network, on our own carrier services. We do not do residential anymore; we are all business. So AireSpring has changed dramatically. Whereas all of our business was long distance in the beginning, now the bulk of it is local phone services, integrated voice and data, and networking products like MPLS. AireSpring has changed dramatically; it’s a completely different company.”
