20110154084 EFFICIENT SERVICE ADVERTISEMENT AND DISCOVERY IN A PEER-TO-PEER NETWORKING ENVIRONMENT

1. A machine-implemented method for advertising a service in a peer-to-peer networking environment, the method comprising:

  • broadcasting, by a local device, a service advertisement in a wireless network, the service advertisement including one or more service identifiers (IDs) identifying one or more services being advertised and an availability schedule of the local device;
  • listening, by the local device, in the wireless network according to the availability schedule of the local device; and
  • in response to a service request received from a remote device during the availability window, transmitting a service response to the remote device, the service response having detailed information associated with one or more services identified by one or more service IDs in the service request.

 

20110153789 EFFICIENT SERVICE ADVERTISEMENT AND DISCOVERY IN A PEER-TO-PEER NETWORKING ENVIRONMENT WITH DYNAMIC ADVERTISEMENT AND DISCOVERY PERIODS BASED ON OPERATING CONDITIONS

1. A machine-implemented method for advertising a service in a peer-to-peer networking environment, the method comprising:

  • monitoring operating conditions of a local device coupled to a wireless network;
  • dynamically adjusting an advertisement period based on the operating conditions of the local device; and
  • broadcasting, by the local device, a service advertisement in the wireless network according to the adjusted advertisement period,
  • the service advertisement including one or more service IDs for identifying one or more services to be advertised from the local device.
