TynTec signs with Regpoint to provide global disaster warning SMS network

Crisis IT specialist to provide global SMS alert system for tsunamis, disease epidemics and terror attacks using TynTec

London, (PresseBox) - TynTec, the mobile messaging services provider, today announces a deal with global healthcare and crisis IT specialist Regpoint to provide high volume SMS delivery for use in emergency situations. The agreement will see Regpoint using TynTec’s custom-built messaging technology to send large numbers of SMS to quickly alert people of tsunamis, terrorist attacks, disease epidemics and other emergencies.

Using TynTec’s custom-built SMSC and deep level (SS7) connection into the global telecoms network Regpoint can be assured of sending millions of ‘Flash’ SMS in short time frames, regardless of the recipient network operator. Flash SMS are especially good for emergency situations because they appear directly on the recipients screen, as opposed to going into the inbox. This means people signed up for the service, which includes government officials, emergency services and doctors, can receive timely warnings on impending disasters, allowing them to react as quickly as possible.

Because of TynTec’s unique access into the global mobile telecoms network the company can guarantee direct delivery of the flash SMS’ to more than 340 networks worldwide within 15 seconds. Therefore not only does TynTec allow Regpoint to issue a vast number of SMS, but also to ensure they are delivered to people roaming across different territories.

Sophia Salenius, CEO from Regpoint said "The TynTec platform gives us the powerful ability to guarantee the delivery of emergency SMS to a vast number of people throughout the globe, helping to save as many lives as possible in emergency situations.

"None of the operators we contacted had the capacity to send anywhere near this volume of SMS or had a similar global reach. TynTec’s high volume SMS capability can throughput the millions of SMS required to get the flash messages out to as many people as possible, as quickly as possible, as well as providing the reassurance that messages will not get lost along the way."

Michael Kowalzik, CEO of TynTec, said, "It is a validation of the strength of the TynTec offering that we are being used for a purpose as important as this. The fact that our messaging services are being used to save lives and safeguard people from dangerous situations underlines the capability of the TynTec messaging platform to deliver SMS as quickly as possible.
