    The seamless provisioning of services and applications across heterogeneous wireless systems will play a key role in future communication systems. While each individual enabling wireless technology is advanced and stable, or is expected to become mature in the near future, a framework for enabling the management of this heterogeneous infrastructure efficiently and user-friendly, does not exist yet. We address these challenges within the SMART project with the invention of a novel architecture for seamless provision of mobile services over heterogeneous wireless networks. The SMART architecture is scalable, is able to use the available resources efficiently (like network, energy, and money), and makes the heterogeneous network transparent to, but nevertheless under control of the user. User-friendliness, security, and efficiency are the key goals of the architecture. In SMART all these issues are being dealt with in an integrated, coherent way.
