Mobile Alerting Practices v1.0 published by Emergency Management TC

Committee Note discusses approaches to alerts in specific geographic areas

OASIS is pleased to announce publication of “Mobile Alerting Practices Version 1.0,” a Committee Note from the members of the OASIS Emergency Management TC [1].

One method of reaching people with emergency alert messages is via their personal mobile devices, such as mobile phones and tablets. Access to these devices is via the Mobile Network to which they are currently attached. However, the need to make a large-scale distribution in a specific geographic area without crashing the control channel, and the need to reach roamers, whose devices may retain their default behavior from their home network, needs consideration by those mobile networks. This document discusses how practitioners have considered this matter.

The Committee Note is available here:
