There are very many different ways how context information could be used to make computer systems and applications more user-friendly, flexible, and adaptable. The use of context information is especially important in a mobile environment, where the environment of interaction, execution, and usage needs change rapidly. Areas where increased use of context information can bring added value and where research work is conducted include human computer interaction, adaptable user interfaces, virtual and augmented reality, mobile, ubiquitous, handheld, and wearable computing. The objectives of this thesis were to briefly clarify what context and context-awareness mean and to analyse the network context-awareness in networks through the use of policies. This was done through the development of a Context Policy Based Management Framework (Context Aware Policy Language and Policy Based Management Architecture), which was initially functionally tested at component level, and eventually successfully exercised by implementing two context aware services through the use of context aware policies.
