Abstract

If the user profile of a communication system subscriber was not fixed to a specific hardware solu- tion, then "dedicated homers" would be free to become roamers and roamers would be free to become "homers." Transferable user profiles offer subscribers with the flexibility to roam to other communications systems or stay at home. It also means fewer subscriber models are needed to meet the consumer market demands, since one flexible subscriber meets the needs of both types of users.
