The main contribution of this chapter is a novel paradigm for future m-commerce multimedia communications and applications that can be integrated with other multifunctional multimedia e-applications (e.g., e-learning, e-health, e-culture, e-work, etc.) in a cost-effective manner. We also propose an implementation of this paradigm based on our novel QoS-oriented medium access control (MAC) technology and the fully distributed all-IP/ATM architecture. The proposed QoS-oriented MAC technology, along with the all-IP/ATM architecture, will provide cost-effective broadband communication multiservice for mobile and geographically distributed users anytime and anywhere.
