CHATHAM, NJ (PRWEB) -- October 2nd, 2007 -- Desktop Alert, Inc. (http://www.desktopalert.net/) today announced the company has been selected by Buckley Air Force Base as the base network-centric mass notification platform of choice.
Buckley Air Force Base is home to more than 10,000 men and women who proudly guard our nation's high frontier by providing combatant commanders with superior global surveillance, worldwide missile warning, homeland defense and expeditionary forces. Buckley is home to more than 37 other units representing every branch of service and components -- Active Duty, National Guard and Reserve.
Buckley Air Force Base has procured Desktop Alert’s network-centric emergency notification system to provide base-wide emergency notification using the base’s existing Internet Protocol (IP) network. The procurement and deployment followed a successful year-long usage of the Desktop Alert notification platform at neighboring Peterson Air Force Base. Buckley Air Force Base was provided with compelling references which were crucial in selection of Desktop Alert.
The alerts appear as pre-defined or on-the-fly pop-up windows which force immediate attention to workstation receiving the message with instructions for the action(s) to be taken. A video, audio, image and or textual alert automatically sound/appear over the computer’s monitor and speakers. Alerts are received base-wide within an average of one minute after the alert is sent.
Buckley's Air Force Base’s emergency alert system operates via Desktop Alerts Web-based administrative interface. Using this web-based console, administrators OR moderators may publish alerts from any computer connected to the base’s network.
"The selection by Buckley Air Force Base is a continuation of Desktop Alert evaluation and procurement across Colorado's most prestigious U.S. Air Force installations which also include nearby Peterson Air Force Base as well as The United States Air Force Academy. Above and beyond desktop alerting, Desktop Alert provides Department of Defense facilities with advanced critical features such as surveillance videos, training videos, XMPP instant messaging, live video conferencing and more to any workstation with a single mouse click. These additional feature capabilities provide our military clientele with the industry's most advanced state-of-the-art Enterprise-Level alerting platform while distancing Desktop Alert from less capable network-centric mass notification technologies.", said Howard Ryan, president and CEO of Desktop Alert Inc.
