A very important issue for the introduction of 3G networks, is the flexible and ubiquitous service provision. Basic factors for the achievement of this goal are the introduction of open interfaces for the service accessibility to network information and reconfigurability. This necessitates the introduction of a generic framework for the overall service(More)
For the provision of downloadable Value Added Services (VASs) to mobile users, the introduction of an Integrated Software Re-configurable Platform is required. Re-configurability aspects have to be deployed not only at the mobile terminal side, but also throughout the application architecture at the fixed part of the network. MOBIVAS perspective is the(More)
