The paper deals with mobility management for the personal agents that represent the users in a network and that support terminal, user and service mobility. A mobility management model, suitable for the agent’s migration between the network nodes and terminals according to the tasks defined by its user and user’s location, is discussed. Mobility events and movement knowledge representation for intelligent search for the user are proposed. The results of the model analysis, including discussion about regular and random user’s movement, are presented.
