Arlington, Va., February 5, 2009 - Cooper Notification, a platform of Cooper Industries, Ltd., (NYSE:CBE) introduced today its latest mass notification solution, Cooper Desktop Notification.

When critical information must be communicated, Cooper Desktop Notification allows authorized administrators to send audio and visual alerts within seconds to all recipients or targeted groups who are logged onto the network.

Cooper Desktop Notification provides flexible two-way communications for delivery confirmation and user response. Compatible with Microsoft Windows XP and Vista, the scalable design of the system supports a vast number of connected users. Cooper Desktop Notification enables organizations to customize their desktop pop-up screens and provide links to access maps, evacuation routes and additional emergency information. Cooper Desktop Notification also leverages SSL encryption to ensure secure communications and is designed to comply with all Department of Defense requirements and specifications.
"With the addition of Cooper Desktop Notification, we now offer the industry's most comprehensive line of emergency notification solutions," said Ratna Reddi, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at Cooper Notification. "Developed from one company with a single, easy-to-use interface, RSAN has the capability to send 250,000 plus messages per minute through voice calls to landline and cell phones, text messages, pager, email alerts, computer desktop notification, and postings on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter as well as instantaneously through WAVES "giant voice" outdoor speakers and SAFEPATH(TM) indoor notification system."
