This chapter is primarily about developing tools to use social science research as inputs to specific scenarios that engineers will use to test and design a specific technical configuration. In the case given as an example, this configuration assumes a range of WLAN, UMTS and GSM services which will be available under particular physical, user and business circumstances. The scenarios must therefore imagine a world not too different to today’s in which we are expected to have and to use a greater range of wireless connected devices and services, and highlight everyday situations that would test this technology in various ways.
