Advances in network architecture are changing application and service delivery. The wireless industry, for example, now talks of service grids — collections of separate wireless services collated from across the network. However, with current limitations in mobile device capabilities, a scalable and efficient middleware platform is essential. The authors' new middleware architecture, called Scalable Inter-Grid Network Adaptation Layers (Signal), integrates mobile devices with existing grid platforms to conduct peer-to-peer operations through proxy-based systems. Combining mobile P2P applications with grid technologies could ultimately give mobile devices the power of supercomputers.
