This chapter reinforces the notion of smart phones based on the context platform previously proposed in Chap.  6, playing a major role in next generation networks. The future is heading towards location based services and today nearly every new phone contains a GPS chip. Furthermore, the penetration of the so called smart phone is very high, with almost all subscribers on a data plan. This enables many new location-based applications that are very flat in their operational structure. We explore new opportunities for context information that not only supports ubiquitous mobile network access, but beyond that allows efficient use of radio access technology. Based on the availability of geo-aided positioning made available through the context platform, this chapter explores how we can use positioning context for enhancing network performance in terms of novel approaches such as community-based sequential paging for LTE-A cellular network, and location-aided scheduling for fractional frequency reused LTE-A relay network.
