Item description for Pervasive Computing: The Mobile World (Springer Professional Computing) by Uwe Hansmann, L. Merk, M. Nicklous, T. Stober & Uwe Hansmann...

This book describes a new class of computing devices which are becoming omnipresent in everyday life. They make information access and processing easily available for everyone from anywhere at any time. Mobility, wireless connectivity, diversity, and ease-of-use are the magic keywords of Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing. Devices include handheld computers, mobile phones, interactive television, smart cards, household appliances as well as intelligent automotive equipment. The book covers these front-end devices as well as their operating systems and the back-end infrastructure which integrate these pervasive components into a seamless IT world. A strong emphasis is placed on the underlying technologies and standards applied when building up pervasive solutions. These fundamental topics include commonly used terms such as XML, WAP, UMTS, GPRS, Bluetooth, Jini, transcoding, and cryptography, to mention just a few. Voice, Web Application Servers, Portals, Web Services, and Synchronized and Device Management are new in the second edition.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pervasive Computing: The Mobile World (Springer Professional Computing)?

Taking your hand to the technology  Dec 25, 2007
This book is a comprehensive introductory book. It takes your hand from the early beginning of pervasive technology while introducing the reader to various building blocks involved in the technology. At the end, the reader will end up knowing what's pervasive computing, what's its origin, and what are the various other technologies that serve as building blocks involved in it. The book is generic, you can start with it, then after that focus on specific use of pervasive systems. I would recommend this book for developers interested in working with type of technology and MOST IMPORTANTLY i urge new RESEARCHERS that wish to work on pervasive computing to read this book COVER TO COVER.
My preferred book on Pervasive Computing  Feb 4, 2002
This is a great book about pervasive computing. It is the future of the Internet and it is almost here!
Good overview of technologies  Jan 31, 2002
If you are interested in technologies, it is a good buy, although it is already a bit outdated. Unfortunately, it does not provide any business cases. So the question "WHY" is not answered in the book.
Too technical  Oct 9, 2001
Dear Author,

I like the general concept of your book, but it seems to technical to me.

Thanks you,


Very good book on technologies  Sep 27, 2001
This book explains new technologies in a very simple and informative way. It would have been nice to find some more links to business, but this seems not to be the target market. Ideal for engineers that need to get an update on technologies.
