Abstract:

As we move closer to world-wide networking and the merger of computing and communications, truly mobile computing-computing while on the move-will become as unexceptional as truly mobile communication using cellular telephones is today. However, mobile computing poses new challenges for both system and application designers. Unlike telephony, where a new communications and terminal infrastructure was created to provide a well-understood service peer-to-peer voice communication, and inter-operability was maintained at the central office, to realize the vision of mobile computing we need to adapt existing applications, and inter-operability must be provided for between peer applications and systems.
