The purpose of the RACE project Mobilise is the definition and characterisation of future advanced telecommunication services. Within this project, the PSCS (Personal Service Communication Space) service concept has been developed which is based on UPT (Universal Personal Telecommunication) ideas. Special emphasis is put on the user's point of view on telecommunication and the support of personal mobility independent of the involved networks. For the establishment of such a service, the service data and logic has to be accessible from everywhere. However, PSCS does not consider an implementation of a database and leaves this to the underlying telecommunication network. It is the aim of this paper to evaluate how far the database concepts developed for the Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS) are able to support PSCS
