HTTP is already the most popular application on wired networks. With the arrival of the UMTS and its high data bit rate, the HTTP will become useful on portable computers. Other services are also offered by the UMTS. All these services increase the quantity of control information on the radio interface. Therefore, research work in this area should optimize the occupancy of the air interface introduced by this signaling information. For example, in GSM systems, half of the available resources is devoted to common and dedicated signaling. In this paper, we propose a mobile agent-based framework in order to reduce the number of signaling requests between the terminal and its base station. A Web access application is used to illustrate the performance of our framework.
