What is Cell Broadcast?
Cell Broadcast (CB) messaging is a mobile technology feature defined by the ETSI’s GSM committee and is part of the GSM standard. It is also known as Short message service -Cell Broadcast (SMS-CB).
Cell Broadcast is designed for simultaneous delivery of messages to multiple users in a specified area. Whereas the Short Message Service-Point to Point (SMS-PP) is a one-to-one and one-to-a-few service, Cell Broadcast is a one-to-many one-to-many geographically focused messaging service. Cell Broadcast messaging is also supported by UMTS 3G as defined by 3GPP as well as LTE.
Unlike SMS, Cell broadcast is not depending on network status and can be delivered even when mobile networks are congested.
eVigilo IADC is the first solution worldwide that has been operated across GSM and 3G UMTS networks.
How are alerts originated?
