Mobile Network Operators

Mobile Network Operators

UPSEN functions as a fully automated cellular broadcast messaging overlay that enables mobile networks to passively receive and disseminate emergency alert and advisory information published by recognized UN agencies and societies.

In our commitment to ensuring the successful implementation of UPSEN, we recognize the importance of addressing concerns related to the financial viability of cell broadcasting. To achieve this, we propose a pragmatic and mutually beneficial collaboration with telecommunication service providers (MNOs).

Our approach to this collaboration is designed to expedite the deployment of UPSEN without any delays or complications. It is important for government stakeholders to understand that this collaboration will not slow down the process. Instead, it will streamline the entire implementation process.

This collaborative partnership with telecommunication service providers (MNOs) aligns with our collective objective of enhancing public safety. It may encompass various forms of cooperation, including incentives such as tax credits or regulatory freedoms, to incentivize active participation in the deployment of UPSEN. This approach ensures that mobile network operators (MNOs) are not only willing but enthusiastic participants in the process.

Our goal is to create a harmonious ecosystem in which all stakeholders, including MNOs, work together seamlessly to achieve the common objective of enhancing public safety and disaster preparedness.

The UPSEN Program is revenue sustained by the imposition of a Public Service Surtax on the network’s connected users who are the beneficiaries of the feature and requires no additional public funding.

UPSEN will establish an available bearer platform to support the creation of commercial cell broadcast/multicast revenue streams for control spectrum investments.

The Mobile Industry (MNOs)

  • Gains operational and economic control over cellular emergency warning deployments,
  • Receive compensation for use of their private assets for non-revenue public benefit,
  • UPSEN is fully automated, requires no human intervention,
  • UPSEN requires no network technology modifications

Global Alerts and Government Framework

Global Alerts works with all levels of governments and all mobile carriers to build the platform to ensure the delivery of safety alerts for its citizens. This platform can be established to focus in on missing persons with the police using Amber Alerts or as an early weather warning system in the case of life threatening tsunamis, hurricanes, tornadoes and flood events. UPSEN is the only Global Emergency Management Cell Broadcast system designed to address regional mass messaging regardless of human defined borders.

The world is united in identifying threats to
our society and communities.

What are Global Agencies saying

Today, I announce the United Nations will spearhead new action to ensure every person on Earth is protected by early warning systems within five years. I have asked the World Meteorological Organization to lead this effort and to present an action plan at the next UN climate conference, later this year in Egypt.

Early warnings save lives and provide vast economic benefits. Just 24 hours' notice of an impending hazardous event can cut the ensuing damage by 30 per cent.

In 2023, 339 million people in 69 countries will need humanitarian relief. That is 65 million more people than in 2022 — a 25 percent increase. It is the highest number of people requiring humanitarian assistance ever recorded. The cost of the response is $51.5 billion, another all-time record.
