Working with nations to provide message processing
systems for emergency alerts & warnings, public or
community notifications and point to multi-point
cellular/mobile communications.
*The end result is to enable the geo-targeted
delivery of cell broadcast messages via wireless
mobiles (SMS-CB). These messages will use CAP.
Advocating CAP world-wide
Working with several countries, CellCast advocates
the usage of the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) for
all emergency messaging.
CellCast’s EAGLE Alerts™ (Emergency Alerts for
Government & Law Enforcement) - an Alert Message
Origination Tool and the CellCast Aggregator
Gateway™ both use CAP to transmit emergency
alert and warning messages.

CAP Success in Sri Lanka
CellCast, working with
the Sri Lankan carrier
MOBITEL have
completed successful
end-to-end
demonstrations of
emergency messages
via cell broadcast.
Emergency messaging
utilized the Common
Alerting Protocol (CAP).
CellCast & the Florida CMAS Pilot
(Commercial Mobile Alert System)
The Florida Division of Emergency Mgmt
selected CellCast because they:
• Demonstrated Interoperability & CAP
compliance for US federal agencies –
NIMS-STEP, IPAWS OPEN and NOAA
HazCollect
• Have recognized expertise for the “A” &
“B” Interfaces – Alert Origination
Messaging and the Aggregator Gateway
• Can continue to send CAP alerts when the
wireless bearer network is operating at
full load capacity
• Provide upgrades to offer multi-lingual
instructions
• Create a seamless interface with local,
state, regional, as well as, FEMA IPAWS
and the NOAA All-Hazards Weather Radio
Network
Panel 1
International Lessons Learned –
Our Experience in Emergency Messaging
• In the USA, as well as internationally, emergency management & public
safety agencies and government telecommunications authorities are
requiring vendors to demonstrate Interoperability using the Common
Alerting Protocol (CAP), an OASIS standard.
• Governments are placing more emphasis on the Alert Message
Origination for the construction of a CAP message (front end – Interface
“A”) and on the Aggregator Gateway to ensure proper delivery of a CAP
message (middleware – Interface “B”); and, are assigning wireless
carriers the responsibility for installing and maintaining a Cell Broadcast
Center (Interface “C”) for Geo-Targeted Alerts of emergency messages.
• Cell Harmonization is picking up more interest! More countries are
requesting information to provide alerts in multiple languages via the
Cell Broadcast of the CAP emergency data messages.
International Cooperation
• CellCast is working closely with the CTO Commonwealth Telecommunications Organization
and its member nations – recommending the
adoption of the Common Alerting Protocol for all
uses of emergency and public alert messages.
