The inefficiency of one-to-one matching of user requirements to a single service has given rise to service composition. Service composition allows simple services to be dynamically combined into more complex services. In mobile environments, service discovery and integration involves cooperation between various service nodes where reliance on a centralized… (More)
The emergence of ubiquitous computing, enabled by the availability of portable devices and advances in (wireless) networking technologies , has increased the need for personalized and adaptive services in mobile environments. Making use of context is essential to cope and timely react to changes in such environments and hence achieve adaptability,… (More)
Context based dynamic adaptation of autonomous services and applications require the acquisition of an array of contextual information. Context dissemination mechanisms may result in network flooding, unrestricted access to private context information, and the inability of consumers to limit or personalize received context. Adapting context information… (More)
This paper presents a dynamic hybrid Service Overlay Network (SON) for service composition for multimedia delivery in mobile networks. The overlay considers the nomadic nature of mobile nodes in the decision for node placement within the overlay as well as the types of services provided and expected Quality of Service (QoS) levels. Dynamic reorganization of… (More)
This paper presents a policy-based context-level negotiation protocol and context-aware system architecture to personalize consumer-received context information through negotiations. Location tracking and prediction empower the system to shape contextual information delivered to users according to their expected needs.
Content delivery through cloud networks has gained popularity due to its effectiveness and reliability. Much progress has been made to allow for the easy integration of heterogeneous systems to compose services on the fly. Despite all efforts, the task of fast service composition has made the assumption of the presence of static searchable and updatable… (More)
As the ―network of network‖, the Internet has been playing a central and crucial role in modern society, culture, knowledge, businesses and so on in a period of over two decades by supporting a wide variety of network technologies and applications. However, due to its popularity and multi-provider nature, the future development of the Internet is limited to… (More)
This paper proposes a new vertical handover (VHO)-enhanced mobile service discovery and composition method over a hybrid service overlay network (H-SON). The overlay considers the dynamic characteristics of mobile nodes in the decision for node placement as well as the types of services provided and Quality of Service (QoS) levels. The mobile nature of… (More)
