Abstract

Accessing the Internet on the move via wireless link requires some provisioning in the network and the terminal part so that we can overcome the difficulties of wireless link, mobility, and device capability limitations. In this paper we propose a mobile agent based system for wireless mobile Internet. We use static agents (terminal and provider) at the two ends of wireless link. We represent the user by a mobile agent on the provider side, mobilize this agent when necessary. We show when, how and what to mobilize. We show that our agent based system has some desirable properties which are effective in compensating the drawbacks of wireless environment, mobile device limitations and TCP, HTTP protocol limitations in wireless environment. We describe the system architecture and operation scenario. Benefits of using agent in this scenario are discussed and we show how different optimization techniques can easily be incorporated in such a system due to its flexibility.
