This paper introduces the M-Zones ( approach for the integrated management of networks, distributed services and applications within Smart Spaces. The main objective of this approach is to facilitate the realisation of software, systems and services that address composition, scalability, reliability and robustness and self-adaptation. It focuses on middleware for management, control and use of fully distributed resources. The term “integrated management” is used to highlight the fact that the approach is founded on the unification of existing middleware and management components, not their replacement. Current approaches to Smart Spaces and their management are characterised by the interworking of separate components and systems; we argue that there is a pressing need for the integration of management and middleware concepts.
