The increasing demand for context awareness in an in-terconnected world necessitates an efficient Context-Management(CoMa) system to enable a wide range of services and applicationsin current and next-generation mobile networks such as 5G and6G. This paper presents a context management architecture thatenables the acquisition, processing, and distribution of contextualinformation to consumers. The architecture leverages a broker andpublish/subscribe messaging model to ensure decoupling betweenproviders and consumers, addressing the network providers’ need for context awareness in their networks.
