This book introduces readers to mobile information services for networks. The content is divided into eight chapters, each of which presents a specific concept and the latest related developments in mobile information services. Mobile information services for networks can be defined as platform-independent functional entities that provide various services based on the communication network platform. The book discusses the three main supporting technologies for mobile information services: neighbor discovery in the data link layer; routing and balanced association in the network layer; and community structure detection in the application layer. Lastly, the book describes the development of applications based on the authors’ mobile information service platform, as well as related key technologies in the domains of intelligent transportation, smart tourism, and mobile payment, such as trajectory analysis, location recommendation, and mobile behavior authentication, which are promoting the development of mobile information services.
This book offers a valuable reference guide for researchers in the field of computer science and technology, as well as those in the field of network mobile information service technology.
