Several months ago, Eddy and Marc – two engineers from Orange Corporate – came to us to propose a new and effective way to ensure that AML can function when roaming. This solution is based on short codes such as +32112 and the setting-up of a specific Short Message Service Centre (SMSC) by mobile operators for AML. It is now live in Belgium for all roaming Android AML locations and for the three Belgian mobile network operators.

With this solution, AML roaming is free of charge for the caller and the Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). It should be noted that handset-based location should function while roaming and remain free of charge according to the EU legislation (the European Electronic Communications Code).

Therefore, we invite national authorities, emergency services, representatives of EU institutions, national telecommunications regulatory authorities, mobile operators and smartphone operating-systems developers to join us to hear from Orange Belgium and ASTRID (providers of the Belgian 112 service).
