Abstract [en]

This project is aimed to highlight the effectiveness of using clients on mobile phones. The paper clarifies the need of FMC by introducing new features in business case that are going to be executed in the near future to facilitate the communication and interaction among people and global networks. The major subject discussed is to achieve a goal in the telecommunications world which is to lessen the call cost especially when it comes to international calls by implementing ‘GPRS Call Back’ using a client installed on the mobile phone.

Moreover, two types of clients are introduced namely ‘Thin’ & ‘Fat’ client. Due to the fact that the user is able to use one of the clients at one time, one of them must be chosen as a preferred client to be installed and used by the users. Owing to the pros & cons related to each client, comparison between two clients is addressed based on some test cases designed to experiment the usefulness of both clients in several conditions.
