A Service-Oriented Approach for In-Network Computations in Wireless Networks
The concept of Mobile Web Services (Mob-WS) is catching pace within research communities due to rapid classification of mobile devices enabling pervasive environments. Beside consumer oriented use cases, another aspect of utilizing the potential of Mob-WS is to use them as computation resources within a wireless network. Such Mob-WS are called "In-Network Mob-WS". In this paper, the authors propose an approach of using In-Network Mob-WS for better management and presentation of wireless networks. A concept of using Mob-WS as back-end resources for In-Network computations is presented by proposing a Mob-WS middleware hosting long-lived asynchronous services.
