Title (EN) NARROWCAST OF INDIVIDUAL INFORMATION OVER A DATA NETWORK
(FR) DISTRIBUTION RESTREINTE D'INFORMATIONS INDIVIDUALISEES SUR UN RESEAU DE DONNEES
Abstract:
(EN) A method and apparatus which narrowcasts individualized information (22) to system users (10) with access to a data network (14) which carries information such as broadband video data, voice data, or other types of equivalent data such as the Worldwide Web. Connected to the data network (14) is a push server (16) which includes a memory which holds information (22) related to various system users (10). Included in the memory are user ID, password, as well as a listing of the types of information (22) which the system user (10) wishes to receive. Also connected to the data network (14) are various data sources which provide various types of information. For example, one source of information may be a report server (20) which on a periodic basis provides report information. Another type of information may be from an alarm server (18) which in real time provides alarms and associated relevant information. The system accesses and retrieves information from these sources. The information is converted to a common format which in turn is provided to the push server (16).
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil permettant de distribuer des informations individualisées (22), de manière restreinte, à des utilisateurs de système, qui accèdent à un réseau de données transportant des informations telles que des données vidéo large bande, des données vocales ou d'autres types de données équivalentes telles que celles du serveur Web. Un serveur dynamique (16) connecté au réseau de données (14) comprend une mémoire renfermant les informations (22) associées à différents utilisateurs système (10). La mémoire renferme l'identification utilisateur, son mot de passe, ainsi qu'une liste des types d'informations que l'utilisateur souhaite recevoir. Différentes sources de données fournissant différents types d'informations sont également connectées au réseau de données (14). L'une des sources d'information peut, par exemple, être un serveur de comptes-rendus (20) qui fournit périodiquement des informations de compte-rendu. Un autre type d'information peut provenir d'un serveur d'alarme (18) qui fournit des alarmes en temps réel, et les informations qui y sont associées. Le système accède à ces sources d'information et en extrait des informations. Lesdites informations sont converties en format commun qui à leur tour sont fournies au serveur dynamique.
