Wireless services infrastructures beyond 3G are evolving into highly complex and heterogeneous network environments embracing a multitude of different wireless internet access technologies, terminal types and capabilities, different bearer services, core/access network configurations, along with a wide range of application-related functions. Further to this reality, service operators are confronted with increasingly demanding users, becoming more and more aware of their needs. Thus, the main objective of this research work is to pave the way to novel service creation and execution systems beyond 3G, allowing the mobile user to build her/his own highly personalised composite wireless services.
