Personal communication services (PCS) embodies the notion that access to land based public networks should reside with the individual rather than with a fixed location (e.g., a wall phone jack), thereby allowing any user to initiate or accept calls from anywhere. An overview of PCS is provided in [1] and a survey of the research and development in PCS can be found in [2].
