Abstract: Disasters, when they strike hard, may cause the disruption of many vital services. ‘Telecommunications’ is being considered one of the vital lifeline services as many disaster relief operations rely on it. Effective communication is dependent on a telecommunication network infrastructure that is working properly. Unfortunately, the infrastructure may be damaged during a disaster causing no-coverage and/or congested network traffic in the disaster-affected areas. In this paper we propose a conceptual framework for building a resilient communication system that not only considers the communications infrastructure but also other driving factors which are necessary for its success. The proposed framework is based on five key pillars, namely: robustness, redundancy, adaptability, agility, and readiness to build capability for developing a resilient communication system. The findings reported in this paper provide some insights into resilient communications that may help network researchers/engineers to contribute further towards developing a robust and resilient communication system capable of coping with disasters.
