This thesis investigates how to develop mobile SMS services using Personal Internet Agents. A platform for Personal Internet Agents is implemented to serve as a framework in which mobile services can easily be created, executed, and administered. The services are based on extracting information and events from various sources on the Internet, then communicating these to the mobile end user.
To evaluate the platform several investigations are carried out regarding scalability, integration possibilities, and performance. To illustrate the functionality of the platform a full-blown mobile service is developed that illustrates the gain of the Personal Internet Agents in combination with the mobile Internet. The service, named Spymail, fetches e-mail from Microsoft’s Hotmail and forwards these to the user via SMS.
Developing services based on agents rises several issues. Since web sites on the Internet sometimes change, go down, etc, agents have to be informed about this to be able to adapt to the situation. Another issue is if it is possible to create a large multi-user agent service or if the bandwidth or computational speed will be a constraint.
