Connection

Connection Definition

Octec stream for reading and writing. Reliable transmission. No message boundaries.

eg. TCP like.

Connection characteristics

  • Bandwidth.
  • Latency.
  • Congestion.
  • Synchronicity.
  • Duration of the transfer opportunity.
  • Monetary cost.

Connection use abstraction

Provided connection is not network depended.

There have to be provide connection related events.

Mobile device constraints

PAN network areas and mobility. Devices are moving.

Mobile devices resources.

Security issues.

Provided seamless connection capabilities

Addressing. Target addresses are found from service discovery.

Recovery. Recovering communication and device “faults” in mobile environment. Provide notification to application about faults.
