    Proposes the use of a network-based agent that represents mobile users in a personal communication services (PCS) environment. The agent, called a user process, performs all the complex signalling functions on behalf of the mobile terminal, thus reducing the amount of signalling traffic that must travel over the valuable air interface. To achieve low call establishment delays, we propose migrating... View full abstract»

    Mobile computers and wireless networks are emerging technologies which promise to make ubiquitous computing a reality. One challenge that must be met in order to truly realize this potential is that of providing mobile clients with ubiquitous access to data. One way (and perhaps the only way) to address these challenges is to provide stationary server machines with a relatively high-bandwidth chan... View full abstract»

    To overcome the availability, latency, bandwidth, and cost barriers of mobile networks, mobile clients of distributed file systems switch between connected and disconnected modes of operation. Lying between these are modes of operation that refine the consistency semantics of cached files, allowing a mobile client to select a mode appropriate for the prevailing network conditions. Clients can take... View full abstract»

    The PARCTAB system integrates a palm-sized mobile computer into an office network. The PARCTAB project serves as a preliminary testbed for ubiquitous computing, a philosophy originating at Xerox PARC that aims to enrich our computing environment by emphasizing context sensitivity, casual interaction and the spatial arrangement of computers. This article describes the ubiquitous computing philosoph... View full abstract»

    Computing and communications is bringing about a paradigm shift in the way these technologies are being used. The shift is in the direction of nomadic computing and communications. Nomadicity refers to the system support needed to provide a rich set of computing and communication capabilities and services to the nomad as he or she moves from place to place in a transparent, integrated and convenie...
