On his recent visit to the European headquarters of e*Message, Berlin’s Senator for the Economy and Technology Harald Wolf learned about the e*Message group’s divisions, customer offerings, and new developments. Wolf was particularly impressed by the continuous innovation that spans the company’s ten-year history. e*Message operates nationwide paging networks in France and Germany, as well as Germany’s largest trunked radio network, serving the Berlin-Brandenburg region.
e*Message is collaborating with Fraunhofer ISST in two population warning projects, SAFE and KatWarn. State agencies and concerned citizens receive alert messages via a satellite-based radio network. e*Message presented first results and future developments during the KAT 10 forum recently held in Berlin.
