The Context Data Cloud  is a service enabler platform (run by a mobile network operator) that interconnects context providers, consumers as well as context-aware service developers for providing semantically enriched context-aware services. It is based on Linked Data  and enables developers of context-aware services to easily realize innovative applications by making use of a set of novel interfaces (provided by the network operator).
This platform mainly consists of four building blocks: The OpenMobileNetwork  provides approximated and semantically enriched mobile network and WiFi access point topology data enabling the development of sophisticated context-aware services. Linked Crowdsourced Data , on the other hand, enriches static location entity (e.g., POIs or events) information by dynamic contextual parameters for realizing various location analytics scenarios. The Context Management is responsible for context search and enrichment utilizing the Linking Open Data Cloud, whereas the Context Consumer Interfaces provide developers the possibility to implement services on top of the platform.
