    Describes nomadic computing services built with currently available hardware and used on a daily basis by a small community of users. This environment consists of applications accessing pagers, facsimile, answering machines, telephone lines, speech synthesis, and digital recording and playback. Its key contributions are the integration of multiple media into a cohesive nomadic information infrastr... View full abstract»

    The article describes an active map service (AMS) that supports context-aware computing by providing clients with information about located-objects and how those objects change over time. The authors focus on the communication issues of disseminating information from an active map server to its clients, and in particular, address how to deal with various overload situations that can occur. Simple ... View full abstract»

    A UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) user profile denotes in which domains and under which conditions a specific service is available to a user. As the research work on UMTS is still in progress, new requirements for the user profile and its management are likely to be set. This article discusses the UMTS user profile identification issues. The authors introduce first the concept of... View full abstract»

    To provide high-speed seamless services for mobile computing, an effective medium access control capable of dealing with mobility issues in multicell wireless local area networks is needed. The physical layers discussed include direct sequence spread spectrum (DS-SS), frequency hopped spread spectrum (FH-SS), and diffuse infrared. Both spread spectrum transmissions are in the 2.4 to 2.4835 GHz ISM... View full abstract»
