Abstract

Method for exchanging files between remote users, through the SIP protocol. The user has a list of contacts between which the exchange of files stored in the user's terminal is allowed, which can be a fixed or mobile terminal, without the need for a cable connection, infrared port, or bluetooth connection. This method is aimed at users who exchange content regularly and are separated by a distance greater than the previously mentioned connections allow. It also allows the operator to control the exchange of files through a SIP server.

Description

Method to exchange files stored in  the mobile or fixed terminal between separate users.

Object of the invention

The present invention, as its own title indicates, refers to a method to exchange files that are stored in the mobile or fixed terminal of users without Need to be close to each other.

This method solves an additional problem for those users who want to exchange files with others contacts but are not close to be able to do for more traditional methods (infrared ports, bluetooth or cable). In addition to allowing the operator to have control of the exchange of files between users.

This process is useful for those users who they need to exchange information with other contacts in any moment and want to do it easily and quickly; for users who need to exchange files between their fixed terminal and their mobile terminal and especially for the operator since it has control about said file exchange.

Background of the invention

Currently the operator has no control of the File exchange between users. In addition a user does not You can send files stored on your mobile phone to a PC that is in the distance unless you have a Proprietary application capable of supporting content delivery heavy The user can only send heavy files to a fixed terminal that is close through the cable, of the infrared port or a bluetooth connection. Or you can send files of limited size and formats limited to a terminal fixed that is in the distance through customers of multimedia messaging The same happens for sending information between two mobile terminals.

The current system requires the installation of a client in mobile and fixed terminals to send files of any type and size, but the operator does not have exchange control, when files are exchanged between users and not against a server controlled by the operator.

This method solves an additional problem for those users who send files even if the devices do not are close and regardless of format and File size It also allows the operator to control the File exchange through the SIP server.

Description of the invention

The present invention applies to the shipment of contents stored by a user to a contact list to through the SIP protocol. The user can be in the distance with your contact list and can be connected from a terminal  landline or mobile The user through the contact list can Decide who or who of your contacts sends which file. In addition it is also capable of capturing files of any of its contacts, as long as the contact has given consent to share that file.

The method object of the present invention is develops in a session in real time, during which the user selects the content to be exchanged and then Select the contacts to whom the file will be sent.

This method requires the installation of a client in the terminals of both the user and the list of contacts and a server installed in the operator's network. Both of them, client and server are based on the SIP protocol (Session Initiation Protocol), which is a signaling protocol that used to start interactive multimedia sessions between IP network users. The advantage that SIP offers over any another proprietary protocol is that SIP allows the development of a  application that can evolve to an application server an IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) architecture. Also allows manage certain functionalities through the methods and SIP extensions already standardized, such as the presence of the list of contacts through an already defined SIP for Instant protocol Messaging and Presence Leveraging Extensions (SIMPLE), the exchange of information, using the SIP Message method, or the action to take, using the SIP Invite method. It also allows the Exchange of files between several users.

The phases of the method are as follows:

to)
He user starts the SIP client that has installed in its terminal and it is registered in the SIP server that is in the network of the operator through a SIP Register method.

b)
E1 SIP server sends the user through the SIP Subscribe and SIP Notify the list of registered contacts, at that time, with which can be exchanged files.

C)
He SIP client is aware of the files that the user has enabled to share with your contacts.

d)
E1 user selects a file to send to one or more of their contacts

and)
A Once the file is selected, the user selects the file (s) contacts to send the file. These contacts must be registered against the service server at that time, already otherwise they would appear disabled and could not receive the file.

F)
He The user's SIP client sends the information to the SIP server of the operator through a SIP Invite.

g)
He SIP server forwards the selected contact or contacts the SIP Invite.

h)
He contact or contacts accept the reception of the file.

i)
He file is transmitted through a SIP method or a protocol specific and is stored in the terminal of the contacts

The SIP server allows the operator to have the file exchange control, control the presence of contacts and manage the availability of the files.

With this procedure you can solve the  problem of ignorance of the exchange operator files between users.

This method allows the operator to have control  File sharing between users. The method too allows the user to share files between their mobile terminal and their fixed terminal even if they are distanced.

For the best understanding of how much is left described herein are accompanying drawings in the that by way of example a practical case of embodiment according to the method recommended herein.

Description of the figures

Figure 1 shows a schematic view of the development of the file exchange method between users SIP based.

Preferred Embodiment of the Invention

As shown in the figure this method allows the sending of files between different users from the mobile phone and PC and its storage in the terminal of the Contact. The operator has control and can manage and bill for it.

The method of the present invention requires to  its development a node in the network, SIP server, which allows the management and control of file sharing, management of the presence of the contact list and the shared files For each user. The process requires the installation of a client SIP both in the fixed terminal and in the mobile terminal of each of contacts. The process takes place in the following phases:

to)
He user starts the SIP client that has installed and registers in the SIP server through the SIP Register.

b)
He SIP server downloads the availability of the list to the client of user contacts. If they are registered on the server They appear as available to exchange information. The Contact availability information is transmitted to through the SIP Subscribe and SIP Notify methods.

C)
He user selects the file to share and then the contact or contacts with whom to share this file. This information is sent to the SIP server through the SIP method Invite.

d)
He SIP server forwards the information to the contact or contacts that are going to receive the file.

and)
He contact or contacts accept the download by sending to the SIP server an ACK, who forwards it to the user.

F)
Be Run the file transfer. Depending on the size of the file, the exchange is done through a SIP method or another type of protocol -HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, ...-.

g)
Be Store the file in the contact terminal.

Optionally, this methodology is complemented with different possibilities:

to)
He user has the information of the files that share their contacts This information has been previously downloaded from a similar to downloading the server contact list SIP to the user's client.

b)
He User selects the file you wish to download from your contact, The action information is sent using the SIP Invite method to be done to the SIP server.

C)
