Framework Architecture Definition



This document describes the overall architecture for the reTHINK project. The document contains an architecture frame work (chapter 1-10), extensive study of the state of the Art (Annex A) and use-cased (Annex-B). The architecture describes a new paradigm, where connectivity control is executed by downloaded software (‘hyperties’) to the endpoints, and compatibility is achieved by downloading matching software to both parties (‘ProtoFly’). This allows a single service provider to initiate communication set up directly with the destination user, and to deliver the service media over the Internet, in a peer-to-peer fashion. Quality of service and security are optionally enhanced by hosted services, using collaborating networks of special web media gateways. This architecture also utilizes independent identity providers to provide end-users greater choice and service mobility, with flexible social-network style association, for both Human-to-Human and Machine-to-Machine users.
