Service Discovery, SIP, Bluetooth, SLP, Spontaneous Networking.


An approach is presented for the service discovery of Bluetooth application profiles during a SIP-based communication session. A system architecture and methodology is presented that leverages the IETF SIP protocol in order trigger a service discovery request between the end points in a session. The end points may support a Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN) like Bluetooth, so that the end effect is the extension of the WPAN network across the Internet in a controlled and managed manner. The result is a mechanism that can support the exchange of Bluetooth service profiles between Bluetooth devices, a Bluetooth device and a PC, and/or a Bluetooth device and an IR device located at the end points of an IP network.
