Abstract [en]

With the increasing use of electronic devices, the need for affordable wireless services specifically context-aware services, in a so-called Personal Area Network (PAN) is becoming an area with significant potential. Service discovery is a basic function.

Even though a number of service discovery protocols have been implemented, a specific protocol for a PAN environment may need to be developed, as the characteristics of a PANs differ from other networking environments. Thus, the specific requirements for service discovery from a PAN perspective were studied. Methods for service discovery will be described that take into account both local and remote services.

These methods will then be evaluated in a SIP telephony infrastructure to decide where a call should be delivered. The location of a person is done by using the implemented service discovery.

Abstract [sv]

Med en ökad användning av elektroniska enheter blir behovet av trådlösa tjänster, speciellt context-medvetna tjänster i så kallade Personal Area Network (PAN), ett område med betydlig potential. Service Discovery är en grundläggande funktion.

Även om flera service discovery protocols har implementerats finns det behov av ett specifikt protokoll för PAN-miljöer då egenskaperna hos ett PAN skiljer sig från andra nätverksmiljöer. Således studerades de specifika krav för service discovery från ett PAN perspektiv. Metoder för service discovery kommer att ta med i beräkningen båda lokala och avlägna tjänster.

Dessa metoder utvärderas i en SIP telephony infrastructure för att avgöra var en påringning ska levereras. Lokalisering av en användare sker genom det implementerade service discovery-protokollet.
