This unique book bridges the gap between ubiquitous computing (UBICOMP) and third generation mobile communication. A first-of-its-kind, this resource helps you decide which are the most promising technologies to use for specific mobile communication applications. Scenarios indicate how new applications will be developed and how to implement them. It points out each technology’s distinguishing characteristics, advantages and disadvantages, to help you determine if a certain implementation is feasible and what performance level you might expect.

The book features an informative discussion on how mobile network operators plan ongoing services and manage resources. Moreover, you learn how Internet providers, portal operators and content providers develop the right platforms for multimedia services, content aggregation and selection towards mobile Internet applications. In addition, future trends are considered. This book is an authoritative, practical reference for all your current and future projects in the field. Contents: Foreword.
