In this paper we address issues related to mobility, personalization and asynchronous operation to support efficient access to the World Wide Web across weakly connected or low bandwidth wireless links. WWW provides a large globally distributed computing and information access infrastructure. With the large amount of accessible information came the problem of information overload, making the process of finding content of interest a difficult issue. This is further exacerbated in mobile environments because of the well-known resource constraints. We have developed MobileIQ, a distributed system and service infrastructure that can offer personalized mobile information access in a wireless network environment. MobileIQ addresses challenges unique to a mobile environment such as mobility management and disconnection management, in addition to issues common to all environments: content personalization, bandwidth utilization, download latencies, and user privacy. We will also demonstrate how this architecture may be used to provide location-based services to users of the MobileIQ system.
