Web services are going mobile. A Mobile Enterprise can be established in a cellular network by participating Mobile Hosts, which act as web service providers, and their clients. Mobile Hosts enable seamless integration of user-specific services to the enterprise, by following web service standards, also on the radio link and via resource constrained smart phones. However, establishing such a Mobile Enterprise poses several technical challenges, like the Quality of Service (QoS) and discovery aspects, for the network and as well as for mobile phone users. The paper summarizes the challenges and research in this domain, along with the authors' developed Mobile Web Service Mediation Framework (MWSMF).
