Broadcast Message Center

The Alcatel-Lucent Broadcast Message Center (BMC) is a commercial mobile alert gateway for public safety, mobile advertising and enterprise-level message delivery in specified geographic areas. With its flexible design, service providers can offer the BMC as a complete solution for countries that want geographical coverage of government alerts.

The BMC provides a broadcaster web portal for managing messages. The access control mechanism offers a virtual operational environment for multiple independent broadcasters: IT administrators, campaign managers, businesses or individuals. This proven end-to-end solution is designed to support all future cell broadcast-based and multimedia-based commercial broadcast services. The standardized platform is scalable for multiple applications and future growth.

The BMC complies with GSM/UMTS, CDMA and LTE standards and emergency service standards such as US CMAS and European EU-ALERT.
