Making the communication network aware of the user's location
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
This thesis report discusses and summarises the concerns for making the communication network location aware. Along with the motivation a collection of services is presented, some more useful than the others.
Several different techniques that could be used to acquire location awareness are presented. Each presentation includes both a technical description, a section with the pros and cons, and a summary of how well it corresponds to the desired characteristics.
At the end of the report the implementation of a prototype call routing application is described, as an example of a location aware service. It enables automatic routing of phone calls based on the user=92s location and is built with help of the Smart Badge and International Multimedia Teleconferencing Consortium (IMCT) Call Management Agent system.
