Method and System to Provide Cross -Protocol Dynamic Recovery of Data Transmission

    The state of the art technologies allow transmission of data between two mobile devices through several protocols, such as Wireless, WiMAX, Bluetooth. At the moment, in case of interference, the connection established between two devices may be dropped, causing the failure of the data transfer, and consequently the loss of all transmitted packages.

    The solution disclosed here solves these kind of issues using an innovative approach that consists in the premature establishment of more than one connection between two devices that must exchange data between each other. In case the main connection goes down for environmental issues, one of the secondary connections, in order of performance related to bandwidth, will continue the data transfer minimizing the packet loss. The functioning of this approach is guaranteed by a new software module, called "Fallback Data Transferring", that has to be installed and executed on both the transmitting and the receiving devices. The behavior of this software module is described by Chart 1. Details related to the establishment of connections are described by Chart 2. Details related to the functioning of data transfer are described by Chart 3.

In detail, the solution consists in the following steps:
the software module, installed on the transmitting device, creates a pool of connections, waiting for a receiving mobile device to accept them. These connections are based on different protocols: Wireless, WiMAX, Bluetooth. Due to the major bandwidth available...
