Abstract

Disclosed is a system to set wired and wireless connection methods by configuring a priority array (connection), table, or matrix (connection/application data) in services to automatically detect the available connection type by Internet Protocol (IP) network or related protocols. With this system, the user does not have to manually switch among the connection methods and protocols.

Invention Disclosure:

What issues/problems does your invention try to address?

Various wired and wireless connection methods are available among smart consumer electronic (CE) devices (e.g., mobile, home, wearable, car, etc.) to access streaming data from local cloud/storage (e.g., local area network (LAN)) or Internet cloud services (e.g., Wired Ethernet, Wired Universal Serial Bus (USB), Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth*, Wi-Fi, 3G/4G/LTE data, etc.). Some of these connection methods are free, or vary in service costs, bandwidth performance, power consumption, and reliability. Current processes for a user to connect to, enable, or switch connection methods are manual, which is not efficient.

How did others try to address these issues/problems?

Current connection methods are manual.

Explain your invention and specifically identify the new and novel features.

The novel contribution is a system to set the connection method by configuring a priority array (connection), table, or matrix (connection/application data) in services to automatically detect the available connection type by Internet Protocol (IP) network or related protocols. With this system, the user does not have to manually switch among the connection methods and protocols. 

Explain how your invention overcomes the problems described above.

The configuration of a priority table or matrix in a server device can be pre-set, decided by the device manufacturer, or modified by users as a preference per availability of the user’s network connection services.
