PageOne provide Keynote speaker at EMMA
Chris Jones, Managing Director of PageOne, provided an assessment of the critical messaging market in the light of the recent reports from the 7/7 Committee and London Resilience Forum. Conference debated the use of both SMS and paging technologies to provide critical messaging in times of national or local emergencies, and agreed with many of the reports conclusions. PageOne was able to confirm to the conference that its national paging network was independent of any of the mobile phone networks, which therefore met a crucial report recommendation that emphasized the need to avoid the unnecessary sharing of public communications infrastructure. The presentation also made clear that there was still an important place for SMS services as part of a multi-faceted communications solution supporting both the public and enterprise sectors of the market with critical messaging solutions.
