We introduce the notion of a mobile intermediary, called Shadow, which is a mobile agent located in the network infrastructure, interacting with complex applications on behalf of mobile users. Due to intermittent connectivity, multiple Shadows may simultaneously coexist. In this paper, we introduce a protocol capable of coordinating Shadows and we present an abstraction layer, hiding away communication and coordination details, which offers a substrate to build distributed applications across mobile devices and fixed infrastructure.
