RedSky Launches Broadcast Alert(TM) Service for College Campuses, Enterprise at ACUTA Conference New service quickly sends emergency and other alert notifications to cell

phones and computers via SMS, email



    HOLLYWOOD, Fla., July 30 /PRNewswire/ -- RedSky Technologies, Inc., the
 leading provider of automated E911 solutions to the enterprise, launched
 today a new Broadcast Alert(TM) service that makes it possible for
 emergency and security personnel to quickly reach large groups of people
 with emergency and other alert messages. The company launched the new
 service at the Association for Communications Technology Professionals in
 Higher Education (ACUTA) annual conference in Hollywood, FL.
     Broadcast Alert is powered by RedSky's Location Information Server, and
 leverages the Emergency On-site Notification feature in the award-winning
 RedSky E911 Manager application to deliver SMS text messages to cell phones
 as well as email messages to desktop and laptop computers.
     "Recent emergency events on college campuses point out the absolute
 requirement that administrators and emergency personnel be able to reach
 thousands of students and faculty quickly with a targeted message," said
 Nick Maier, RedSky's Senior Vice President. "Every student has a cell phone
 and, with Broadcast Alert, every student can be reached as quickly as you
 can send an SMS message."
     School districts and higher education institutions that want to quickly
 reach a dense population of cell phone-enabled students, faculty and staff
 represent the primary market for Broadcast Alert. Large businesses,
 especially those with multi-building campus environments and mobile users,
 also will benefit from the new service.
     Broadcast Alert delivers police emergency alerts, weather and traffic
 alerts, and building closure notices. Regardless of content, messages can
 be created and sent in seconds to thousands of subscribers who register
 their device with their university, school or employer.
     Broadcast Alert is immediately available in version 5.4 of E911
 Manager, which is integrated and certified with Avaya, Nortel and Cisco
 call processing platforms.
