Intersec Joins ITU to Advance Global Emergency Alert Systems for ‘Early Warnings for All’ Initiative

Intersec becomes an ITU member, supporting UN’s EW4All initiative for universal emergency alerts through telecommunications.

Intersec has announced its membership in the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), within the Telecommunication Development Sector (ITU-D). ITU is the United Nations’ specialized agency for ICTs. The Company’s decision to join ITU-D is rooted in its commitment to the “Early Warnings for All” (EW4All) initiative, launched by the United Nations in March 2022.

This initiative aims to protect every person on Earth with an early warning system. This includes providing people worldwide with timely emergency alerts through telecommunications networks and mobile phones with a 2027 target for universal coverage.

I am pleased to welcome Intersec, our new member, to the ITU Telecommunication Development Sector. I look forward to our collaboration to leverage the growth of mobile networks and services to support countries in warning people at risk.

Dr. Cosmas Luckyson Zavazava, Director of the ITU’s Telecommunication Development Bureau

As an ITU member, Intersec is committed to making substantial contributions, focusing on affordable connectivity and emergency telecommunications by actively participating in working groups, sharing telecom expertise, and assisting governments in securing the necessary subventions to make the most of these technologies.

Leveraging two decades of experience in the telecommunications sector and advanced expertise in location intelligence, we have guided many governments and telecommunications companies in deploying robust alerting systems around the world.
