The development, delivery and management of mobile services are the subject of many research activities in both the academia and industry. The ultimate goal of these efforts is a dynamic environment that enables the delivery of situation-aware, personalized multimedia services over heterogeneous, ubiquitous infrastructures, commonly termed as systems beyond 3rd generation (3G). Reconfigurability and adaptability are key aspects of the mobile systems beyond 3G. Reconfigurable mobile systems and networks introduce additional requirements and complexity. Using the existing network control plane is inadequate for the realization of the reconfigurability process. Introducing a reconfiguration management plane is very important for the deployment of network/system wide reconfigurability. We intend to discuss the basic functionality of RMP and respective interrelations.
