Final design of the Architecture



This document describes the overall architecture for the reTHINK project. The document contains an architecture frame work (chapter 1-10), use-cases (Annex-A). 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. 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.
