Application service peering and aggregation

Fuchun Lin (Inventor)

Research output: Patent


Service applications at one or more service providers are bundled through a server thereby creating new services. The server comprises service agents, each of which corresponds to one or more service applications and proxies for its application(s) to perform service bundling. When a subscriber interacts with a service application and affects service specific data, the application sends this data along with the subscriber's intent with respect to this data to the server. The server next identifies a primary service agent, which is the agent proxying for the application. This agent determines a peer group of service agents, wherein each peer agent corresponds to a service application that together define a bundled service. The principal and peer agents subsequently negotiate/coordinate with respect to the service data. As a result, the agents may communicate with their respective service applications to determine a subscriber's current service data configurations and/or to update these configurations.
