Austrian Infrastructure Minister Norbert Hofer plans to implement a public warning SMS system based on cell broadcast this year. It will be used to warn the local population in the event of an emergency situation. The EU's new communications code outlines new requirements to extend such services in the coming years. According to Hofer, the ministry will enter into negotiations with stakeholders on the implementation of the new system.
