One is a Bluetooth terminal 200 which transmits a detection signal for detecting zone entry according to the SDP protocol by the zone entry detection unit 111 in a service zone by broadcasting and transmits a response to the detection signal. Is detected by the Bluetooth terminal 200 entering the service zone. Here, the detection signal uses IAC (Inquiry Access Code) which is one of the access codes defined in the Bluetooth communication.

The other is to have the Bluetooth terminal 200 transmits a notification signal for notifying its own entry into the broadcasting, so that when the Bluetooth terminal 200 enters the service zone, the notification signal is received by the zone entry detecting unit 111 and receives the Bluetooth. This is a method for detecting the zone entry of the terminal 200. Here, the detection signal or notification signal may include the unique identification information (eg BD address, MAC address, etc.) of the Bluetooth terminal 200, the unique identification information to identify the Bluetooth terminal 200 to approve the connection. Is used.

The Bluetooth connection unit 112 performs a Bluetooth communication connection with the Bluetooth terminal 200 entering the service zone. That is, the Bluetooth connection unit 112 approves the connection to the Bluetooth terminal 200 for the Bluetooth communication connection, and allocates a wireless channel to the Bluetooth terminal 200 for which the connection has been approved. If the Bluetooth connection unit 112 does not receive the unique identification information for the Bluetooth terminal 200 entering the service zone from the zone entry detection unit 111, the Bluetooth connection unit 112 inquires and obtains the unique identification information from the Bluetooth terminal 200. .

Here, the zone entry detection unit 111 and the Bluetooth connection unit 112 use a GAP profile. The GAP profile is a profile that defines procedures for discovering, connecting to, and securing a Bluetooth device that all Bluetooth devices should be basically implemented.

The IP allocating unit 121 allocates an IP to the Bluetooth terminal 200 through a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) function and manages by matching the unique identification information of the Bluetooth terminal 200 with the assigned IP. The unique identification information and the assigned IP of the matched Bluetooth terminal 200 are used for data transmission between the Bluetooth terminal 200 and the Internet server, and are specifically used for a NAT (Network Address Translator) protocol.

The server connection unit 122 stores routing information of a specific Internet server set as a default, and when an IP allocation to the Bluetooth terminal 200 is made by the IP allocating unit 121, the server connection unit 122 according to the Internet protocol upon user request. It connects to a specific Internet server of the set routing information and provides a home page of the specific Internet server to the Bluetooth terminal 200. The set routing information can be arbitrarily changed by the user.

The web server function unit 130 enables the W-AP 100 to perform a function as a web server. To this end, the web server function unit 130 includes a content providing unit 131, an agent 132, and a content storage unit 133.

The content providing unit 131 provides the corresponding content stored in the content storage unit 133 to the Bluetooth terminal 200 when the content requested by the Bluetooth terminal 200 is stored in the content storage unit 133.

The agent 132 manages (eg, downloads, updates, etc.) the content stored in the content storage unit 133, and allows the administrator to monitor the operation or status of the W-AP 110.

To this end, the agent 132 connects to a service management server (not shown) (that is, a specific Internet server) that manages the W-AP 100 at each set cycle time, notifies the current state of the W-AP 100, and downloads it. Check the content to be done. At this time, if there is content to be downloaded to the agent, the agent 132 downloads the corresponding content from the service management server and stores it in the content storage unit 133. In this case, the agent 132 checks whether the content to be downloaded from the service management server already exists in the content storage unit 133 and then downloads the content if it does not exist.

On the other hand, the present invention may allow the service management server to download the content directly to the W-AP 100 without going through the agent 132 when there is content to download to the W-AP (100).

The content storage unit 133 stores contents stored in itself, contents downloaded from the service management server, or various information provided by the user.

On the other hand, when the W-AP 100 of the present invention allocates the IP to the Bluetooth terminal 200 and connects to the Internet network, the W-AP 100 notifies the Bluetooth terminal 200 of the W-AP 100 and the user accesses the Internet or requests from the W-AP 100. The initial screen is provided to the Bluetooth terminal 200 in order to select and provide its own content.

In this case, the initial screen may be provided by the internet access support unit 120, the web server function unit 130, or performed in a separate configuration.

4 is a block diagram of an apparatus for supporting Internet services according to a second embodiment of the present invention. As shown in FIG. 4, the W-AP 100a, which is an Internet service supporting apparatus according to the first embodiment of the present invention, is configured by adding the service manager 140 to the configuration according to the first embodiment. That is, the W-AP 100a includes a Bluetooth function unit 110, an Internet access support unit 120, a web server function unit 130, and a service manager 140.

The service manager 140 is to provide a service mounted on the Bluetooth terminal 200 or 110 connected to the Bluetooth communication by the Bluetooth function unit 110, and the service provider 141 and the information storage unit 142. ).

The service provider 141 provides a user interface to the Bluetooth terminal 200, and provides a list of service items (or at least one icon) and an initial screen for notifying that the user can access the Internet and the Internet through the user interface. In addition, the service provider 141 identifies a service item required by a user through an initial screen, and provides the detected service in association with the information storage unit 142. In this case, the service provided by the service provider 141 is provided without access to the Internet network and is provided based on a self-mounted service application, which is differentiated from providing content information.

Meanwhile, the user may select and receive a service provided by the service provider 141 through the initial screen, but may also request an internet connection or request content provided by the web server function unit 130 through the initial screen. have.

The information storage unit 142 stores various types of information corresponding to service items provided by the service provider 141, and provides the corresponding information when the service provider 141 requests information.

Of course, in order to provide the information requested by the user in connection with the Internet access support unit 120, the service manager 140 may access the corresponding Internet server and obtain the information requested by the user.

Hereinafter, a method of connecting a Bluetooth terminal to the Internet in the W-AP 100 or 100a will be described with reference to FIG. 5. 5 is a data flowchart illustrating a method for supporting Internet access using an apparatus for supporting Internet services according to an embodiment of the present invention.

The W-AP 100 or 100a broadcasts a detection signal in the service zone at predetermined periods of time (S501). In this state, when the user using the Bluetooth terminal 200 enters the service zone of the W-AP 100 or 100a, the Bluetooth terminal 200 receives a detection signal and accordingly a response signal notifying reception of the detection signal. Is transmitted to the W-AP 100 or 100a (S502).

Here, the Bluetooth terminal 200 performs only one response to the detection signal in the service zone.

When the W-AP 100 or 100a receives the response signal, the W-AP 100 or 100a knows that the new Bluetooth terminal 200 has entered, and identifies the unique identification information of the Bluetooth terminal 200 included in the response signal or the Bluetooth terminal ( If the unique identification information of 200 is not included, the Bluetooth terminal 200 requests and obtains the unique identification information.

Then, the W-AP 100 or 100a performs an authentication procedure for confirming whether the connection of the Bluetooth terminal 200 is the Bluetooth terminal 200 authenticated using the unique identification information of the Bluetooth terminal 200 (S503). If the connection authentication is successful, the communication terminal for the Bluetooth communication with the Bluetooth terminal 200 is connected (S504).

When the Bluetooth communication is connected, the Bluetooth terminal 200 requests the IP allocation to the W-AP 100 or 100a (S505), whereby the W-AP 100 or 100a sends an arbitrary IP to the Bluetooth terminal 200. Assign (S506).

When the IP is assigned to the Bluetooth terminal 200 in this way, the Bluetooth terminal 200 is connected to the W-AP 100 or 100a at the edge of the Internet network, that is, the state connected to the Internet network. do. The present invention may have a process in which the Bluetooth terminal 200 pings the W-AP 200 to confirm the response to confirm the Internet connection.

When the Bluetooth terminal 200 is connected to the Internet network through the W-AP 100 or 100a, the W-AP 100 or 100a notifies the Bluetooth terminal 200 of the initial connection via the initial screen (S507). Here, the initial screen outputs a voice or indication for notifying Bluetooth communication, and displays an icon or a selection number for selecting an Internet connection.

If the user requests the Internet access through the initial screen (S508), the Bluetooth terminal 200 drives its web browser (S509) and requests the W-AP 100 or 100a to access the Internet (S510). .

Then, the W-AP 100 or 100a checks the routing information to the Internet server 320 set as the initial connection (S511), and connects the Bluetooth terminal 200 to the corresponding Internet server 320 according to the checked routing information. (S512). In this case, when the W-AP 100 or 100a connects the Bluetooth terminal 200 to the Internet, the W-AP 100 or 100a connects to the Internet server 320 using the IP assigned to the Bluetooth terminal 200.

When the Bluetooth terminal 200 is connected, the internet server 320 provides the home page to the Bluetooth terminal 200 through the W-AP 100 or 100a. The Bluetooth terminal 200 checks the home page on the screen, and then requests a desired content request to the Internet server 320 through the W-AP 100 or 100a. Accordingly, the Internet server 320 transmits the corresponding content. Provided to the Bluetooth terminal 200 through the W-AP (100 or 100a).

Here, data transmission and reception is performed between the Bluetooth terminal 200 and the W-AP 100 or 100a through TCP / IP communication using a PAN profile, and data transmission and reception between the W-AP 100 or 100a and the Internet server through an Internet protocol. This is done.

Hereinafter, a method of receiving content from an Internet server in the W-AP 100 or 100a according to an embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to FIG. 6. 6 is a data flow diagram illustrating a method of storing content in an Internet service supporting apparatus according to an embodiment of the present invention.

First, the administrator determines the content to be distributed to the service management server (herein referred to as Internet server 330) and the W-AP 100 or 100a (S601 and S602).

On the other hand, the agent 132 of the W-AP 100 or 100a connects to the service management server (herein, referred to as the Internet server 330) every cycle time (S603). At this time, the connection uses the Internet protocol or the TELNET / SSH (secure shell) protocol.

 The agent 132 accessing the Internet server 330 provides status information of the W-AP 100 or 100a and inquires whether there is content to download to itself (S604). Then, if there is content to be downloaded, the agent 132 is provided with information of the content to be downloaded (S605), and determines whether the corresponding content exists in the content storage unit 133 (S606).

In step S606, the agent 132 does not request a download from the Internet server 330 when the content to be downloaded already exists in the content storage unit 133, and the content to be downloaded is the content storage unit 133. If it does not exist at the), the Internet server 330 requests the download of the corresponding content (S607).

Accordingly, the Internet server 330 downloads the corresponding content to the agent 132 (S608), and the agent 132 stores the received content in the content storage unit 133 (S609 and S610). At this time, the download of the content is in accordance with the Internet protocol or FTP (File Transfer Protocol) protocol.

Hereinafter, a content providing method according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to FIG. 7. FIG. 7 is a data flow diagram illustrating a content providing method using an internet service supporting apparatus according to an embodiment of the present invention. FIG. It will show the case provided to the Bluetooth terminal.

When the Bluetooth terminal 200 enters the service zone (S701), the W-AP 100 or 100a establishes a Bluetooth communication connection with the Bluetooth terminal 200 and assigns an IP to perform internet connection (S702).

The W-AP 100 or 100a notifies the Internet connection and provides an initial screen for providing the service or content to the Bluetooth terminal 200 (S703).

Accordingly, the user knows that the service zone can be entered and the Internet can be accessed through the initial screen displayed on the screen of the Bluetooth terminal 200, and the service or content can be provided through the service or the content list displayed on the initial screen. .

If the user requests the Internet access from the initial screen, the W-AP 100 or 100a connects the Bluetooth terminal 200 to the set Internet server through the Internet access support method described with reference to FIG. 5.

When the user requests one piece of content from the content list provided by the web server function unit 130 on the initial screen (S704), the Bluetooth terminal 200 corresponds to the corresponding content to the W-AP 100 or 100a. It is requested (S705).
