Multimedia applications executed on mobile devices allow users to be present and communicate with other users, anywhere and anytime, through wide area cellular networks, wireless local area networks (WLAN), or fixed networks. In order to enable ubiquitous personalized services, communication systems should allow users to specify their context, or their mobile devices and network infrastructures should automatically sense their context and offer enhanced service provisioning solutions. In this paper, we propose an agent-based solution that supports context-aware provisioning of IP multimedia subsystem (IMS)-enabled ubiquitous services. Using agent technology, multimedia communication, controlled by SIP and enriched with context-related events delivered by SIP’s event mechanism, can be seamlessly provisioned, taking into account not only mobility issues and context-awareness, but also the semantics of exchanged events. This paper proposes a multi-agent system that will enable users to consume context-aware ubiquitous services in a seamless (i.e., automated) way, providing optimal provisioning of SIP-based multimedia services according to user preferences.
