Intersec announces its accession to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), within the Telecommunications Development Sector (ITU-D). The ITU is the United Nations agency specialized in ICT. The company’s decision to join ITU-D stems from its commitment to the ” Early Warning for All” (EW4All) initiative, launched by the United Nations in March 2022.
This initiative aims to protect people around the world with an early warning system. This includes providing people around the world with timely emergency alerts through telecommunications networks and mobile phones, with a goal of achieving universal coverage by 2027.
“I am pleased to welcome Intersec, our newest member to the ITU Telecommunication Development Sector,” said Dr. Cosmas Luckyson Zavazava, Director of the ITU Telecommunication Development Bureau. “I look forward to our collaboration to take advantage of the growth of networks, mobile services and support countries in alerting people at risk.”
As a member of the ITU, Intersec is committed to making substantial contributions, focusing on affordable connectivity and emergency telecommunications, actively participating in working groups sharing its telecommunications expertise, and helping governments secure the necessary grants to get the most out of match of these technologies.
“Thanks to two decades of experience in the telecommunications sector and diverse knowledge in location intelligence, we guide different governments and telecommunications companies in the implementation of alert systems,” says Charlotte Thomas, Product Director at Intersec .
Intersec’s alerting solutions already cover 30% of the population of the European Union, in accordance with Article 110 of the European Electronic Communications Code (EECC). Beyond European borders, cooperative relationships with telecommunications operators in 50 countries provide a solid foundation for resilient warning systems and local expertise, especially in disaster-prone regions. This allows public authorities to deploy rapid and seamless warning systems to ensure a more resilient future.
