A Generic Framework for Bluetooth Promoted Multimedia on Demand (BlueProMod)
Source: IGI Global
In recent years many technologies have converged to integrated solutions and one of the hottest topics has been the deployment of Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPANs). In this paper, the authors present a generic architecture scheme that allows voice and other real-time traffic to be carried over longer distances. The proposed scheme is a novel framework that combines a wired backbone network including Bluetooth Access Points (APs) with the mobile Bluetooth-enabled devices of the end users. This scheme is called Bluetooth Promoted Multimedia on Demand (BlueProMoD). BlueProMoD is a hybrid network and provides free-of-charge communication among customers, multimedia advertisements, as well as location-based and other value-added services.
