Everbridge acquires cell broadcast technology leader one2many
Everbridge, Inc., today announced that the company has acquired the leading global provider of cell broadcast solutions for safety applications, one2many, in order to provide a mobile-optimized, full-lifecycle solution for meeting and exceeding EU regulatory and other global initiatives for countrywide population alerting. The combination creates the largest and only public warning system combining cell-broadcast and address-, group-, and location-based, multi-channel technologies. The new hybrid platform enables countries to protect against coronavirus; share updates on viral hotspots and pandemic best practices; coordinate first responders and healthcare resources; establish two-way communications with at-risk populations; and manage disruptions to transportation, education and other critical services. In addition, the platform also provides critical event management capabilities across a broad range of threats including natural disasters, terrorism, cyber, and other security events.
“Everbridge and one2many combine the most global deployments and, importantly, the deepest knowledge on best practices for large-scale population alerting in the industry,” commented Maarten Mes, Managing Director at one2many. “Customers no longer need to choose between the best location-based mobile messaging and the best cell broadcast offering – they can adopt the best of both capabilities in one single unified platform.”
