Title (EN) TRACKING TRANSACTIONS BY USING ADDRESSES IN A COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK
(FR) SUIVI DE TRANSACTIONS A L'AIDE D'ADRESSES DANS UN RESEAU DE COMMUNICATIONS
Abstract:
(EN) Communications between participants over a communications link are proxied by an intermediary, such as an Integrated Order Mechanism (IOM). Participants interact with each other through the IOM. The IOM may be transparent to the participants such that they are not aware that the IOM is involved in processing communications. For example, in the context of a transaction by a customer making a purchase from a merchant over the Internet, the IOM facilitates the processing of transactions by processing requests from both the customer and the merchant. Neither the customer nor the merchant may be aware that the transactions are being handled by the IOM. Transactions may be tracked using addresses in a communications network. Address identifiers may be used to reduce the size of the addresses.
(FR) Selon cette invention, des communications entre des participants sur une liaison de communications sont représentées par un intermédiaire tel qu'un Mécanisme de Commande Intégré (MCI) dans lequel il y a interaction entre les participants. Le MCI peut être invisible aux participants de sorte que ceux-ci ne soient pas conscients que le MCI est impliqué dans le traitement des communications. Par exemple, dans le contexte d'une transaction effectuée par un client faisant un achat chez un commerçant en ligne, le MCI facilite le traitement des transactions en traitant des demandes émanant du client et du commerçant à la fois. Ni le client, ni le commerçant ne sont conscients que c'est le MCI qui traite à ce moment-là les transactions. Les transactions peuvent être suivies à l'aide d'adresses dans un réseau de communications. Des identificateurs d'adresses peuvent être utilisés pour réduire la taille des adresses.
