Abstract

Wireless messaging, in the form of two-way paging, is an integral part of universal Personal Communications Services (PCS). Basic wireless messaging services include providing reliable (acknowledged) message delivery, reply capabilities, and message origination from a messaging device. Many more advanced services can also be envisioned. Wireless networks and end devices impose many limitations on system design. To overcome the problems caused by such an environment, we have introduced network based proxies, called user agents, to assist simple end devices, and a novel way to define messages, called flexible messages, so that advanced messaging services may be offered. In this paper, we describe how user agents and flexible messages assist in providing messaging services in the Pigeon two-way messaging research prototype at Bell Laboratories.
