Why CMA

The members of the CMA Association encompass Operators, Manufacturers, Distributors, Consultants and End-users. They meet to discuss market and technology trends in the wireless messaging technology market.

The Association deals with proven Digital Communication and Alerting Network mainly based on the open POCSAG & (Flex) protocol, the predominant global standard for digital paging.

CMA members have developed unique network architecture and end devices which meet all relevant requirements for alerting. Not only designed for a variety of end users and applications e.g. Public Safety (from regional up to nation-wide alerting networks):

Fire fighters, Police, Rescue Services and Health Care, but also, for industrial segments (on-site paging) such as large production sites (food, automobile), airports, oil platforms.

Hybrid approaches: Hybrid solutions (LTE for mission critical and IoT Technologies used in combination with POCSAG & Flex) have various advantages, enjoying new opportunities but also facing challenges. The CMA Members have launched several POCSAG / LTE IoT devices and we are evaluating POCSAG / LTE acceptance in several European countries.

This shows how well-tried technologies such as POCSAG can co-exist and be updated with the continuous integration of the new. In the future, we will make alerting even faster, more efficient and less dependent on end devices. Innovation is the key here. Join the CMA!
