Description

  The present invention enables connection to an external network via a short-range wireless communication device device (hereinafter referred to as a device device) such as Bluetooth (registered trademark) or wireless LAN (Wi-Fi, 802.11a / b / g / n, etc.). A setting method for simplifying Bluetooth (registered trademark) and wireless LAN settings for a device apparatus that requests network connection in a gateway apparatus to be provided, and a device apparatus setting system and device apparatus setting program having this function About.
Currently, in order for the device device to communicate with the gateway device using Bluetooth (registered trademark) or wireless LAN, pairing operation (in the case of Bluetooth (registered trademark)) or setting operation to the device device (in the case of wireless LAN) )Is required.
The pairing operation is executed by pressing the setting buttons provided in the device device and the gateway device almost simultaneously, and, in some cases, inputting a password predetermined by the device device to the gateway device.
The setting operation is executed by operating and setting a device device set of an SSID (Service Set Identifier) for identifying a gateway device, an encryption method, and an encryption key. In order to simplify the setting operation, a procedure such as pressing the setting button almost simultaneously has been proposed.
In recent years, it is expected that Machine-To-Machine (a device that performs M2M and M2M will be referred to as an M2M device) as a device device that can acquire and remotely control information via an external network. In order to provide the M2M service, it is necessary to connect the M2M device to an external network such as the Internet. In order to connect an M2M device to an external network, the following two configurations are generally considered.
(Configuration 1) A configuration in which all M2M devices include a communication module that can be connected to an external network such as LTE, WiMax, or 3G.
(Configuration 2) Once the M2M device is connected to the home gateway (HGW) or smartphone that already has the function of connecting to the external network via Bluetooth (registered trademark) or wireless LAN, the HGW or smartphone or the like is connected to the M2M device. Configuration that provides connection to the network (Hereafter, the HGW or smartphone that provides the connection to the external network is called M2M-GW).
  In order to realize M2M that communicates with everything, it is necessary to reduce the price of M2M devices, and the above-described extension of configuration 2 that can be realized with relatively inexpensive communication modules such as Bluetooth (registered trademark) and Wi-Fi. Expected in the future.
For example, as shown in FIG. 6, the device apparatus (M2M device) 12 is temporarily connected to the gateway apparatus (M2M-GW) 10 using Bluetooth (registered trademark) or wireless LAN, and the gateway apparatus (M2M-GW) 10 It is assumed that the device apparatus (M2M device) 12 provides a connection to an external network (Internet 3). In this case, in order to perform communication via the Bluetooth (registered trademark) or wireless LAN between the device device (M2M device) 12 and the gateway device (M2M-GW) 10, the device device (M2M device) 12 and the gateway Pairing operations and setting operations are required for all the pairs between the devices (M2M-GW) 10.
Then, assuming that M2M is widely used and a combination of connection configurations between a large number of device devices (M2M device 912 and a plurality of gateway devices (M2M-GW) 10) is used while being switched from moment to moment, There is a problem that setting work needs to be performed in advance for the number of combinations of the (M2M device) 12 and the gateway device (M2M-GW) 10, which hinders popularization.
Therefore, as shown in Non-Patent Documents 1 to 3, a technique for simplifying a Bluetooth (registered trademark) pairing operation and a wireless LAN setting operation has been proposed.
However, in any case, some setting operation such as simultaneous pressing operation of the setting button of the gateway device and the device device is necessary, and it is not known that pairing operation or setting operation is necessary in the first place. ) And users who are unfamiliar with the operation of a wireless LAN or the like, it is not always easy to use Bluetooth (registered trademark) or wireless LAN.

The gateway device (base device) 10 includes a setting profile creation unit 11 and is configured to create various types of information when performing connection settings for the device device 12.
The management server (M2M device management server) 2 is a server newly introduced for facilitating the connection setting operation of the device apparatus 12, and is a setting for recording information (setting profile) for connection setting of the device apparatus 12. A profile recording unit 21, a setting profile transmission unit 22 that transmits this information to the gateway device 10, and a control unit 23 that controls transmission / reception of setting profiles and processing operations are provided. The setting profile created by the setting profile creation unit 11 of the gateway device (parent device) 10 is recorded in the setting profile recording unit 21, and the recorded setting profile is sent to another gateway device (parent device) by the setting profile transmission unit 22. ) It is configured to be able to transmit to 10.
That is, the management server 2 cooperates with a plurality of gateway devices (M2M-GW) 10 to share connection settings within the group 1 without modifying the existing device device (M2M device) 12. ing.
The device device setting system of the present invention is constructed by a device device setting program stored in the management server (M2M device management server) 2 and each gateway device (M2M-GW) 10. Each gateway device (M2M-GW) 10 may have a device device setting program installed by downloading software via the Internet 3.
The management server (M2M device management server) 2 includes a computer, a ROM that stores a basic program including an operating system (OS) and various basic devices, and a hard disk drive that stores various programs and data. (HDD), a media drive device that reads programs and data from storage media such as CR-ROM and DVD, a CPU that executes the program, a RAM that provides a work area for the CPU, an information input means, a display means, etc. It has the main components of a normal computer.
Each gateway device (M2M-GW) 10 includes a main configuration of a computer such as a basic program including an operating system (OS), a memory, and a CPU that executes the program.
Next, the procedure of the device device setting method in the gateway device of the present invention will be described with reference to the processing sequence diagram of FIG.
First, preparation in advance when performing connection setting of the device apparatus 12 by the device apparatus setting system will be described.
Each gateway device (M2M-GW) 10a, 10b using this function connects to the management server (M2M management server) 2 and performs usage registration (step S1). In use registration, user information of each gateway device (M2M-GW) 10a, 10b and M2M-GW information such as device type are input.
  The management server 2 stores the information input in the use registration in step S1 in its own database, issues a group ID, and stores them in association with each other (step S2). If the group ID has already been issued, no new group ID is issued.
  The management server 2 assigns a group ID to each gateway device (M2M-GW) 10a, 10b as a response to the use registration in step S1 (step S3). As the group ID, for example, the same ID is set for each gateway device (M2M-GW) belonging to the same group, such as a family or the same company.
  Next, a person who has knowledge about the use of Bluetooth (registered trademark) or wireless LAN (for example, an administrator) uses a gateway device (M2M-GW1) 10a to connect any device device (M2M) 12 belonging to the group. Then, connection setting to the Internet is performed (step S4). This connection setting is the same as an existing Bluetooth (registered trademark) pairing operation or wireless LAN setting operation.
  The gateway device (M2M-GW1) 10a that has set the device device (M2M) 12 uses the setting profile creation unit 11 to create a setting profile in which connection setting information with the device device 12 is described (step S5). For example, in the case of a wireless LAN, the connection setting information corresponds to a combination of an SSID and an encryption key.
  The setting profile created by the gateway device (M2M-GW1) 10a is registered in the management server 2 (step S6).
The management server 2 stores a set of information of the group ID, the setting profile, and the gateway device (M2M-GW1) 10a being connected (step S7).
The above processing is a preparation for performing connection setting of the device devices 12 in the group by the device device setting system.
  In the device device setting system that has been prepared in advance, the gateway device (M2M-GW2) 10b that has not been set for connection with the device device 12 for which connection setting has been performed by the gateway device (M2M-GW1) 10a. The device apparatus 12 is detected by an existing technology that receives a signal emitted from the device apparatus 12 (step S8).
  Subsequently, when the user who uses the gateway device (M2M-GW2) 10b whose connection setting for the device device 12 has not been set receives the detection of the device device 12 and desires the connection setting with the device device 12, the user's A connection setting processing operation by input will be described.
  The gateway device (M2M-GW2) 10b that has detected the device apparatus 12 does not have a setting profile of the detected device apparatus 12 in itself (when the setting of the target device apparatus 12 does not exist in itself). Then, the setting profile acquisition request is transmitted together with its own group ID and M2M device information (step S9).
  The management server 2 responds to the gateway device (M2M-GW2) 10b with a setting profile corresponding to the device device 12 (step S10).
  The gateway device (M2M-GW2) 10b that has received the setting profile applies the setting profile to itself (step S11). For example, in the case of Bluetooth (registered trademark), each of the gateway device (M2M-GW1) 10a and the gateway device (M2M-GW2) 10b is in a state where pairing with the device device 12 is completed.
  Since many device devices 12 cannot communicate with a plurality of gateway devices 10 at the same time, gateway devices that communicate with the device device 12 are changed from the gateway device (M2M-GW1) 10a to the gateway device (M2M-GW2) 10b. In order to switch to, the gateway device (M2M-GW2) 10b transmits a request for switching the communication destination of the device device 12 (step S12).
The management server 2 specifies that the target device device 12 is currently communicating with the gateway device (M2M-GW1) 10a (user Z) from its own database, and is communicating with the gateway device (M2M-GW1). ) A switch request is transmitted to 10a (step S13).
When it is specified that the communication is being performed with the gateway device (M2M-GW1) 10a, the gateway device (M2M-GW1) 10b of the user Y has a screen as shown in FIG. ) Is displayed, and it is confirmed whether or not the switching process can be performed. When “Use” is selected, the switching request is executed, and the switching request is transmitted to the gateway device (M2M-GW1) 10a.
As shown in FIG. 4, the gateway device (M2M-GW1) 10a that has received the switching request uses, for example, a pop-up of a message that the user Y wants the switching request to the user (user Z). In response to the confirmation (OK button selection), it is decided to switch the communication with the device device 12 in communication to the gateway device (M2M-GW2) 10b.
The gateway device (M2M-GW1) 10a and the gateway device (M2M-GW2) 10b perform communication control for switching the connection destination of the target device device during communication from the gateway device (M2M-GW1) 10a to the gateway device (M2M-GW2). Perform (step S14).
At this time, it is assumed that the device apparatus 12 behaves in accordance with the standard established by each standardization organization, and switching is performed only by the gateway apparatus 10 (and the management server 2).
Note that the procedure for disconnecting communication from the base unit side is prepared by a standardization organization for both Bluetooth (registered trademark) and wireless LAN.
According to the device setting system provided with the management server (M2M management server) 2 described above, as shown in FIG. 5, Bluetooth (registered trademark), wireless LAN, etc. When sharing device devices (M2M), a single group (one family, one company, one organization) with one or more administrators who have knowledge about using Bluetooth (registered trademark) or wireless LAN, If a pairing operation or setting operation with the device device (M2M) is performed by any gateway device (M2M-GW), other users in the group automatically detect the device device (M2M). By making a switching request, it is possible to connect to the Internet and use it without the need for a pairing operation or setting operation.
This is because in the conventional device setting system (FIG. 6), it is necessary to carry out setting work in advance for the number of combinations of the device device (M2M) and the gateway device (M2M-GW). If the setting operation is performed only once in the group, the device device (M2M) 12 can communicate with all the gateway devices (M2M-GW) in the same group, thereby avoiding complicated setting operations and setting the connection. It can be done easily.
