There are some important requirements to build effective smart spaces, like human aspects, sensing, activity recognition, context awareness, etc. However, all of them require adequate system support to build systems that work in practice. In this chapter, we discuss system level support services that are necessary to build working smart spaces. We also include a full discussion of system abstractions for pervasive computing taking in account naming, protection, modularity, communication, and programmability issues.

Remote procedure call (RPC) is an inter-process communication technology that allows a computer program to communicate with a procedure running in another address space (commonly on another computer on a shared network) without the programmer explicitly coding the details for this remote interaction.
