A new-generation access network should be able to transport various kinds of dynamically changing sensor information about specific localities or private individuals to different destination servers in a secure manner for processing so that the various processed information can be used in an integrated manner to provide advanced context-aware services. After classifying the various kinds of sensor information related to individuals, we propose a communication architecture in which sensors placed in the environment, mobile terminals owned by users, and the new generation access network operate cooperatively. It features secure transport of sensor information via mobile terminals by establishing communication channels to sensors and the sensor database.
