Deliver dynamic content to mobile users in specific geographical area

 

Opencode iCell Broadcast Center (iCBC) allows mobile operators, content providers and government authorities to deliver early disaster warnings, other useful information or marketing promotions to mobile subscribers based in or entering a specific geographical area. CBC messages can be sent on different channels and cover areas from a single radio cell to clusters of cells or even the whole network.

 

Seamless operation and utilization of the Cell Broadcast network technology

Opencode iCBC comes with an intuitive Cell Broadcast Entity (CBE) user interface for seamless operation by MNOs and their partners. Thanks to an available external interface the CBE can be easily integrated with the MNO messaging infrastructure and thus generate more revenue from existing and new network applications and third parties.

 

Universal user-reach

Cell broadcast technology is typically available on all networks and supported by all handsets. Before use, the service can be activated either manually by the subscriber or automatically by the operator updating the handset's cell broadcast settings.
