Paper Abstract

In this paper, we consider the problem of providing multimedia services to mobile clients, from the viewpoint of designing applications and systems that support session mobility. We present a software architecture for multimedia services that supports session hand-off between service providers, and allows operating parameters of all components of the session to be altered as part of the hand-off. We describe a user interface that simplifies initiating session mobility, while taking into consideration display device capability. We discuss the system support that is necessary, and describe the implementation of our ideas within our software architecture.
