ENISA has published a new report about how mobile roaming could be used nationally to mitigate large mobile network outages

The EU’s cyber security agency, ENISA, has published a new report about how mobile roaming could be used nationally to mitigate large mobile network outages. The National Roaming for Resilience report aims to provide national telecom regulators with a portfolio of possible options.

Outages of mobile networks can have a severe impact on both the economy and society and are also common. In 2012, half of the major communication outages reported by EU Member States to ENISA under Article 13a were mobile network outages. Sometimes mobile network outages can last several days.

National roaming could work as a fallback during severe mobile network outages, allowing subscribers of the affected operator to roam on other mobile networks in their country and in this way continue to communicate even when own operator’s network is down. In this report, ENISA looks at national roaming from a security and resilience perspective and analyses different national roaming solutions.
