The Virtual Home Environment (VHE) is a very important mechanism in the upcoming mobile telecommunications infrastructure, providing a ubiquitous approach in the delivery of services. The universality of systems like UMTS and WLANs increases the need for efficient introduction of VHE. In this paper, we discuss the adoption of Mobile Agents (MA) for coping with the VHE technical challenges. We present the detailed design of an integrated, open and extensible architecture by taking into account a… CONTINUE READING
