A Service Discovery Infrastructure for Heterogeneous Wired/Bluetooth Networks

Elena Pagani, Stefano Tebaldi, Gian Paolo Rossi

Abstract

Specifications of some applications based on the Bluetooth protocol stack have already been standardized by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group. Those applications can however be accessed inside a piconet, while Bluetooth devices belonging to different piconets are not able so far of cooperating in a distributed application. In this paper, a framework is proposed that allows a Bluetooth device to search for services provided by other devices, also in case they are connected to different piconets that communicate through a wired network. The proposed framework has been implemented on a testbed platform and its suitability has been tested by using it to distribute a file transfer service over a heterogeneous network.
