The evolution of third-generation mobile communications networks has nominated the requirements for flexible service provisioning, intelligent and customized charging, as well as location-aware service and data management as key enablers for the support of new advanced service offerings to mobile users. Our work is related to the design and implementation of a flexible service provisioning and reconfigurability management middleware for third-generation systems and beyond. The article focuses especially on the location-related features and functionality of our architecture, discussing the interactions required to accomplish location- and mobility-aware user profiling, service deployment and discovery, as well as charging and billing.
