|Our main interest in mobile agents is not motivated by the
technology as such, but rather by the benefits it
provides for creating distributed systems.
They reduce the network load , overcome network latency, encapsulates protocols, execute asynchronously and autonomously, adapt dynamically , are naturally heterogeneous and are robust and fault tolerant.
So clearly, several applications benefit from the mobile agent paradigm. E-commerce, personal assistance, secure brokering, retrieval of distributed information, telecommunication networks services, workflow applications and groupware, monitoring and notification, information dissemination and parallel processing.
The list seems endless, but that speaks for itself the power of this technology.
