Summary: 
In order to realize universal service access of mobile users on the global telecommunication environment, we have to consider the scalable networking architecute based on the distributed object computing technologies. In this paper, we apply TINA to the promising networking architecture, and propose TINA-based scalable model for realizing personal mobility service, which especially focuses on making access to telecommunication services from any legacy systems that do not support such the new environment, using a downloadable module in an end terminal, as well as considering load balance of a whole system. Our proposed model also focuses on exchanging personal infomation of mobile users between different administrative domains, by separating the already-specified user profile information objects into two parts, which are the domain-common part and domain-specific part, and propose secure exchange procedure.
