This paper presents the design and implementation of a software system which provides location tracking and messaging services for mobile group communication in IP networks. This system architecture consists of central tracking, handheld tracking, handheld messaging and Web-based administration subsystems. After prototype development and demonstration, the system is able to offer mobile users a variety of group communication scenarios in ubiquitous IP networks.
