Continuous advances in networking systems facilitated exponential increase in the use of largely connected computer systems and applications. These advances demand scalability of communication mechanisms while maintaining good performance. Proliferation of pervasive devices and fast growing wireless and sensor networking created a new paradigm - Mobile Computing. Prominent features of event-based systems, mainly, content-based systems provide a great support for the requirements of such a dynamic and vast network, and maintain good performance. Very few of the current content-based systems allow mobility, and those who allow it, do not have support for flexibility in event notifications. This work introduces mobility in Combined Broadcast Content Based system. It also adds support for histograms that aims toward supporting advanced semantics such as manycasting, faircasting and bestcasting which will enable flexible event notifications.
