The increasing demand for context awareness in an interconnected world necessitates an efficient Context-Management (CoMa) system to enable a wide range of services and applications in current and next-generation mobile networks such as 5G and 6G. This paper presents a context management architecture that enables the acquisition, processing, and distribution of contextual information to consumers. The architecture leverages a broker and publish/subscribe messaging model to ensure decoupling between providers and consumers, addressing the network providers’ need for context awareness in their networks.
