The MUGGES mobile service prosuming platform aims at enabling user-aware service provision and consumption from the very mobile devices in a true peer-to-peer manner, still providing centralized support to user- and location-aware micro-service searching. Thus, users will not only provide contents but also launch and host services from their own mobile devices. Explorative field trials in Spain and Finland assessing the potential of the ‘prosuming concept' were carried out for several weeks with students and IT professionals. The feedback gathered from end-users showed that the MUGGES proposed location concept eases service creation and consumption, although service provisioning from mobile devices is still in its infancy.
