The same deployment is now in operation at Northern Command/NORAD Enterprise.

Its mission is to organize, train, educate, man, equip, fund, administer, mobilize, deploy and sustain Army special operations forces to successfully conduct worldwide special operations.
“Crucial in the selection process was our platforms very unique ability to deliver network alerts in seconds as opposed to minutes with both low bandwidth consumption and a zero need for expansion of hardware and system configurations. Our notification platform runs on the customers’ existing computational infrastructure and never requires an on-site install engineer. These installs were completed over the phone in a few hours start to finish. Lastly, the sustainment costs are historically low when compared to all known and approved DoD MNS alternatives”, said Howard Ryan, Founder and CEO Desktop Alert Inc.

“When lives are at stake, second’s count. Desktop Alert is the only known DoD vendor with a 10 second poll rate capability for network alerting beit a on-premise or cloud-based deployment of our notification system. A five year review of our DoD client reports indicate 99% of all network alerts were and continue to be received in less than 60 seconds with a bulk of the alerts being received in under 30 seconds. Latency-based network alerts introduce the risk of failure to all missions. We hang our technological hat on the speed of the alerts delivery, the speed of the alerts receipt and doing so with little to no deprecation of the networks bandwidth” said Howard Ryan, CEO and Founder Desktop Alert Inc.
