Description

Internet joint router hawing the function of broadcasting relay}

The present invention relates to an internet sharing router, and more particularly, to a personal portable terminal having a video processing function such as an 'iPod' (hereinafter referred to as a 'personal wireless terminal') by using a broadcast tuner including the Internet. Receiving a broadcast according to a request of a user having a recording on the internal storage or by transmitting the broadcast received on the Internet to reduce the economic burden of the consumer and to expand the role of the router for an Internet sharing router having a broadcast relay function will be.

In general, as the demand for information processing increases in the information society created through the remarkable development of electronic communication and computer fields, computers for processing them are rapidly spread and network environment for efficient data management using such computers. Making it is common.

As a result, the use of multiple computers in offices or individual homes has led to the emergence of local area networks (LANs) for the need to process information more efficiently and systematically and to operate each computer smoothly and quickly. .

If the configuration is absolutely necessary to implement such a LAN, it may be an Ethernet hub and an internet sharing router (hereinafter, abbreviated as 'router') installed with a large number of computers and networking. It is a device that reads the address of the destination contained in the transmission information (packet) and sends and finds the most appropriate communication path when sending and receiving.

In this case, the router is used in the LAN to maintain a path for data communication between each internal LAN and the upper layer broadband LAN when there are multiple LANs on the internal local network and one IP in the upper layer broadband LAN. Let's do it.

Although the above-mentioned LAN is positioned as a major means of acquiring the latest information, acquiring information through the traditional mass media is also a very important factor. Nowadays, it has evolved into digital multimedia broadcasting (DMB), which supplies broadcasting signals to moving targets.

The DMB refers to a broadcasting service that digitally modulates voice and video and provides it to a fixed or portable receiver. The DMB is a digital service that provides sound quality and data or video service of CD level and provides excellent fixed and mobile reception quality. It is also called 'TV in hand' in that it is a multimedia broadcast and can be viewed on the go. It is classified into terrestrial DMB and satellite DMB according to transmission method.

Terrestrial DMB is a method of receiving radio waves shot by a broadcasting station like a general broadcast. Terrestrial DMB transmits broadcasting through VHF channel 12 through existing repeaters. Unlike satellite DMB, which can simultaneously transmit on the same frequency in the whole country, it is received at different frequencies according to regions. Terrestrial DMB is a method developed by applying video technology to Eureka-147, the technical standard of European digital audio broadcasting (DAB). Terrestrial DMB has the advantage that it can be used without expensive because it uses existing technology and equipment.

The frequency bands used by satellite DMB are Ku band (12 ~ 14㎓) and S band (2 ~ 3㎓). When broadcast from the terrestrial broadcasting center to the satellite through the high band Ku band, the satellite sends it to the terminal at the low band S band frequency. In areas where it is difficult to receive satellite signals directly, satellites send signals through Ku-band to a terrestrial repeater called Gap Filler, which then converts the signal to S-band and sends it to the terminal. Satellite DMB can eliminate blind spots by using these two frequency bands and installing gap fillers. Satellite DMB is a satellite that broadcasts radio waves, so it is possible to provide nationwide service and a variety of channels, but the disadvantage is that the fee is higher than terrestrial DMB.

At this time, when a large number of mobile individuals attempt to use both the Internet and broadcasting, a problem arises in that a personal wireless terminal and a DMB must be carried separately or have a personal wireless terminal having a DMB function.

An object of the present invention for solving the above problems is, after receiving the broadcast according to the request of the user having a personal wireless terminal using a broadcast tuner including the Internet to the personal wireless terminal side, such as 'iPod (iPod)' The present invention provides an internet sharing router having a broadcast relay function to reduce the economic burden of the consumer and expand the role of the router by broadcasting the broadcast recorded or received in the store of the Internet.

A feature of the Internet sharing router having a broadcast relay function according to the present invention for achieving the above object is, by receiving a signal generated from a PC connected to the communication network constituting the internal local network data communication between the internal local network network LAN signal mixing and distribution module to provide to the upper broadband communication network at the same time, the WAN signal mixing and distribution module to receive the access information received while performing data communication with the upper broadband communication network and to provide to the communication network constituting the internal local network, and An Internet IP sharing router having an internal memory for storing incoming information and storing its own device control server program, comprising: a broadcast signal tuner unit for receiving a broadcast signal from a broadcast network such as cable TV, satellite waves, and terrestrial waves; Searching for a corresponding broadcast among wired and wireless broadcasts including the Internet through the broadcast signal tuner and the WAN signal mixed distribution module according to a user's request, and controlling the broadcast to be received through the broadcast signal tuner and the WAN signal mixed distribution module. A broadcast search engine; An STB controller configured to control the broadcast search engine and the broadcast signal tuner to perform overall function control of the set top box; Controls the signal flow between the LAN signal mixing distribution module and the WAN signal mixing distribution module based on the program data stored in the internal memory. When the broadcast reception or recording request is generated from a user authorized through the WAN signal mixing distribution module, the STB An ECI control unit for receiving the corresponding broadcast through the control unit and controlling the recording to a PC connected to the internal memory or the LAN signal distribution module if necessary; And according to the control request of the ECI control unit includes a broadcast signal transmitting unit for transmitting a broadcast being received or recorded in real time to the user side through the WAN signal mixing distribution module.

The expected effects due to the above-described features of the present invention include a 'iPod' after receiving and recording broadcasts by having a relay function in a router used to connect an internal local network to an external broadband LAN. The user of the same personal wireless terminal connects the router through the Internet and is provided through the relay function of the router so that the functions of the DMB can be implemented regardless of region.
