  • This paper presents a web-based e-guide system for tourism using offloading and mobile integration. A user can search for new mobile services available on the website to use either remotely on the server where the services resides, or locally after downloading them to his/her mobile device and work offline without a mobile connection. The system aims to help the tourist accessing tourism information directly from his/her smart device, anytime and anywhere using offloading. It is a web-based electronic guide that provides the user with appropriate tourism information about Jordan and guides him/her to find the best places to party, eat out, and enjoy culture events. The system architecture and the main components of the proposed services were presented and discussed. The system has been prototyped and validated in a real-time mobile internet application scenario. The system also has been evaluated through simulations in a mobile network environment. Both experimental and simulation results demonstrated the effectiveness and efficiency of the proposed system. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
