Packet-oriented access to cellular networks enables us to deliver multimedia content to mobile users. As cellular networks will continue to deliver circuit switched voice for some time to come, care must be taken to avoid interference between these delivery mechanisms, while maximizing the range of services and the number of users. Smart delivery of multimedia content involving agents running in the mobile, the base station and the content provider allows us to dynamically adapt the application and network behavior to each other in order to meet the criteria for specific applications. In particular, this paper examines the delivery of streaming media and interactive voice as Voice over IP (VoIP) to mobile users. Our conclusion is that this, in combination with the dynamic adaptive properties as introduced by the agents, enables us to transfer voice entirely IP over wireless links, thereby freeing further resources for the new applications that we refer to in this paper.
