Velleros partners with Blue Sky Communications to bring CMAS to American Samoa

PAGO PAGE, AS — Velleros, the leading provider of mass notification and content delivery for regional wireless carriers, has announced that Blue Sky Communications is deploying the Velleros Aggregation and Syndication Technology (VASTtm) platform in compliance with the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) initiative for providing alert delivery.

Based upon the Commercial Mobile Alert System (CMAS) managed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Velleros solution allows the carrier to provide its customers with location-based alert messages. These geographically-targeted notifications likely represent imminent threats to life, health, and property, and will be delivered automatically to affected constituents.

By supporting CMAS across their network, Blue Sky ensures that their subscribers have the security and protection of receiving these critical notifications that are issued by public safety and governmental agencies. By utilizing the industry-leading Velleros solution, Blue Sky can reach any broadcast-enabled or data-connected device on the islands with enhanced alerting and content delivery service for a truly innovative community service on the islands.

“Velleros is pleased to announce the beginning of a valued relationship with Blue Sky Communications by providing our Hosted Services platform to address their alerting requirements and additional value-added messaging services,” noted Joe Cobbs, VP of Business Development at Velleros.

“Blue Sky is committed to supporting this important public safety alerting service in times of crisis,” commented Adolfo Montenegro, President and CEO for Blue Sky. “As the first CMAS-compliant service offering in the South Pacific, we continue to innovate and advance the customer experience in order to best serve the people of American Samoa.”
