VIDEO LAUNCH! Check out our new video describing how UMS Location Based SMS alerting is used in relation to the Åknes/Tafjord tsunami case on the West coast of Norway. Location based SMS alerting is a unique way of alerting people of danger in a specific geographical location. Together with Hörmann GmbH's siren systems for public alerting, we have implemented a warning system that could contribute to save lives, as well as helping people sleep better at night. Thanks to Icecube Media for creating this video.
In the second company blogpost of 2016, UMS founder Kjell Heen - having recently attended the annual "Civil Preparedness conference" by the Norwegian Directorate for Civil Protection - reflects on the vital role of network scaling in relation to public alerting.
I recently had the pleasure of attending the DSB‘s conference “Civil Preparedness 2016”. For UMS as a technology company, lectures related to Electronic Communications (eCom) and data security were the most exciting. The speakers went a long way in emphasising the importance and the consequences related to data and data communications.
