The two remarkable phenomenons of engineering, the Internet and the mobility, have merged today into an independent ecosystem that is known as the mobile Internet. Now, this ecosystem is driving rapidly its integration with the service-oriented paradigm that aims to deliver a plethora of content-rich and interactive mobile Internet services to terminals, which typically are end user mobile devices, such as, smart phones, tablets or laptops. As a result, the contribution of these devices to the Internet tra.c has seen a tremendous rise, which has forced the IT and Telecommunication experts to envisage an era beyond the existent. An era of ubiquitously connected daily life objects that are able to consume and provide mobile Internet services to one another. Today, this is known as the era of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication, the so-called Internet of Things (IoT).
This research presents a novel concept and prototypical implementation of Mobile Server Platform (MSP) to address various uprising gaps in the M2M domain. The MSP provides a set of strategically connected layers of architectures to enable the offerings of mobile Internet services through M2M terminals. These layers are mainly categorized into Mobile Web Server layer, SLA Framework layer and Software Application layer.
