Location-Based e-Campus Web Services: From Design to Deployment
In THE previous work, the authors have designed, using a network-based approach, and are currently deploying on Purdue wireless Infrastructure, a Web service for location discovery of 802.11-based mobile devices. This paper presents a novel web-based application called Remote Printing Service (RPS) which is entirely built on top of the LOcation Discovery Service (LODS). RPS is not only capable of locating the nearest printers but also allows mobile users to print without having to install any printer drivers. Most of the time users can print even without having to download the le to the mobile device. The authors have also designed a prototype for a network-based Personal Paging system that provides active paging and active email notification capability for mobile users.
