Abstract

With the rapid evolution of the Next Generation Networks (NGN) concept in the communication industry, mobility requirements have become major challenges that raise the complexity of resource management. In order to maintain continuous end-users sessions, an End-to-End (E2E) mobility management solution must be applied. For this purpose, we introduce the Community of Interest (CoI) concept, also called Virtual Community (VXC) concept, at each NGN layer (service, network, equipment, user). In this paper, we propose to gather elements into VXCs according to two main interests: first, “Ubiquity” which refers to elements that have equivalent QoS and functionality, and second, “Location” which refers to elements that have the same mapping address. These gatherings guarantee the user-centric mobile approach by taking into consideration end-users needs, their demanded QoS and real-time changes in their ambient environments. At he end of this paper, a feasibility study that is based on JXTA (Juxtapose) and EJB (Enterprise Java Bean) technologies is provided.
