Everbridge Selected to Power the Nationwide Public Alert System for Spain
Everbridge, Inc., a global leader in critical event management (CEM) and national Public Warning solutions, announced the selection by Spain to deploy its next-generation population alerting technology to help keep the country’s more than 120 million residents and visitors safe and informed in case of an emergency. Everbridge announced the contract award anonymously in a press release last month.
The new country-wide public alert system of Spain will include both Cell Broadcast coverage at the national level, as well as the publication of alerts via the Web and through mobile alerts, powered by Everbridge. The state-of-the-art alert system will reach 99% of the population of Spain, including 47 million residents and nearly 80 million annual visitors, through mobile network operators Telefónica, Vodafone, Orange and MásMóvil, while protecting the confidentiality and privacy of mobile subscribers.
