Celltick to enable cell broadcast on Taiwan Mobile’s SA 5G network
Mar 16, 2021
London – Celltick, the world’s largest cell broadcast-based products provider and a global leader of Public Warning systems (PWS), announced it has been selected by Taiwan Mobile, one of the largest mobile operators in Taiwan, to expand its MAGEN® CBC (Mass Alert Geo Emergency Notifications Cell Broadcast Center) to support its SA 5G network.
The MAGEN® CBC is used by the National Science and Technology Center for Disaster Reduction (NCDR) to alert citizens in time critical emergencies e.g. typhoons, floods, earthquakes and major fires.
Taiwan Mobile deployed Celltick’s CBC in 2015 together with 2 other mobile operators in the country – Taiwan Star and Asia Pacific Telecom (APT). As a global forerunner in digital communication, Taiwan Mobile launched its 5G services in July 2020. Sticking to its commitment of improving people’s lives with technology, it is now among the first mobile operators worldwide to implement cell broadcast over its SA 5G network.
“We are immensely proud for again being selected by Taiwan Mobile, which is a globally recognized innovative leader, for expanding cell broadcast over its SA 5G network”, said Ronen Daniel, Celltick’s CEO. “I look forward to further developing our partnership with Taiwan Mobile and keep playing a role in their technical leadership and striving to fulfill its vision of tomorrow’s 5G era.”
Tom Koh, CTO of Taiwan Mobile said: “We are pleased to launch this much anticipated 5G CBC project with Celltick. Taiwan Mobile will continue advancing its 5G and technologies to empower users to open their world to more possibilities.”
