Unified Genasys Critical Communications Platform Provides Complete EU Directive Solution
SAN DIEGO, CA – February 19, 2020 – Genasys Inc. (NASDAQ: GNSS), a global provider of critical communications solutions, today announced that presentations of the Company’s technologically-advanced public warning system are being well-received by EU member nations evaluating solutions that fully comply with the European Electronic Communications Code EU Directive (Article 110).
The directive requires all EU member nations implement a public warning system that delivers geo-located emergency communications through mobile telecom networks that enable reverse 112 capabilities. The deadline for compliance is June 2022.
“The European Union recognizes the increasing importance of critical communications systems to keep citizens, visitors and tourists safe during emergency situations,” said Richard S. Danforth, Chief Executive Officer, Genasys Inc. “Genasys provides the unique combination of technologies and expertise that best address the EU directive.”
Genasys’ National Emergency Warning System (NEWS) can be deployed directly on multiple mobile carrier networks across location-based SMS and Cell Broadcasting channels to send emergency communications, alerts and notifications to anyone, anywhere with no opt-in.
Messages are managed and delivered through the Genasys cloud-based command console or mobile app. Dynamic maps, traffic information, weather forecasts, and sensors for earthquakes, flooding, landslides, fires and other IoT capabilities are integrated into the app command console. The powerful geo-location capabilities of NEWS enable emergency management officials to send hyper-specific alerts to populations in different areas.
Based on the network of mobile carriers, NEWS sends thousands of alerts per second nation-wide, regionally or locally. By targeting only crisis-affected populations, NEWS delivers urgent, location-specific information to save lives. NEWS also monitors the number of people moving in and out of an at-risk area to more effectively scale an emergency response.
