California to Deploy Rave Mobile Safety Mass Notification System
The platform will be available to hundreds of alerting authorities, providing California enhanced flexibility and configurability over current capabilities.
FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — Rave Mobile Safety announces it has been selected by Atos Public Safety as the Next Generation 911 (NG911) Alert and Warning System platform for the state of California.
The win represents the ninth statewide deployment of Rave’s solutions, according to the announcement.
Rave’s alerting platform will be available to hundreds of alerting authorities across the state, protecting more than 39 million residents. The company’s system will consolidate and expand current capabilities into one state-wide solution. The uniform platform will better meet the stringent feature, reliability and performance requirements for a state with emergency communications needs covering everything from earthquakes, wildfires and tsunamis to civil disturbances and major sporting events.
Atos, the prime network service provider for the state’s NG911 infrastructure project, will manage the overall program. In addition to providing critical emergency alert notifications to residents and first responders, Rave will also serve as the platform for initiating the state’s Integrated Public Alert & Warning System (IPAWS) communications.
Rave’s alerting platform is said to enable governments, organizations, higher education institutions and schools to send messages quickly and reliably in three clicks across multiple modes of communication.
The solution integrates with California’s NG911 system, enabling agencies to ensure phone numbers and GIS data sets are synchronized. With the platform’s role-based access control capability, emergency managers can access neighboring agencies’ systems for back-up and redundancy.
Usability and system access is further enhanced through Rave’s partnership with RapidDeploy, which provides 911 dispatchers and supervisors integrated access to Rave Alert through RapidDeploy’s Cloud-based RadiusPlus mapping system deploying across the state.
