MobileAtlas

Taking roaming measurements to the next levelMobileAtlas

MobileAtlas is an international measurement platform for cellular networks that takes roaming measurements to the next level. Although mobile cellular networks have become a major Internet access technology, mobile data traffic is surging, and data roaming has become widely used, well-established measurement platforms (e.g., RIPE Atlas) are not well-suited for measurements in the mobile network ecosystem. This includes measurements of metered connections and consideration of roaming status and zero-rating offers.

MobileAtlas implements the promising approach to geographically decouple SIM card and modem, which boosts the scalability and flexibility of the measurement platform. It offers versatile capabilities and a controlled environment that makes a good foundation for accurate and fine-grained measurements. In the current phase we focus on increasing the coverage of the measurement platform and improving the support for emerging technologies (e.g. eSIM, IPv6, VoLTE, and 5G).
