Title (EN) METHODS AND SYSTEMS OF WIRELESS COMMUNICATION BETWEEN A REMOTE DATA NETWORK AND A SET-TOP BOX
(FR) PROCEDES ET SYSTEMES DE COMMUNICATION SANS FIL ENTRE UN RESEAU DE DONNEES ELOIGNE ET UN BOITIER DECODEUR
Abstract:
(EN) Disclosed are methods and systems for connecting a set-top box STB (102) to the Internet over existing and future wireless networks, combining television with wireless Internet access. A conventional television (100) is used in combination with a STB (102) that has a wireless or wired keyboard (122), a power supply (118), and audio/visual connections (104) for connecting the STB to the television (100). In an embodiment, a wireless telephone (34) is placed in a docking station on top of the STB (102), providing the user with both data (when docked) and voice capabilities (when being used simply for telephone calls). CDMA, CDPD, or other wireless technologies may used for connection to the Internet.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et des systèmes de connexion d'un boîtier décodeur (STB) à l'Internet sur des réseaux sans fil existants et futurs, qui combinent télévision et accès Internet sans fil. Une télévision classique est utilisée en combinaison avec un boîtier décodeur qui comporte un clavier avec ou sans fil, une alimentation et des connexions audiovisuelles pour connecter le boîtier décodeur à la télévision. Dans une forme de réalisation, un téléphone sans fil placé dans une station d'accueil située sur le boîtier décodeur fournit à l'utilisateur des fonctions de données (lorsqu'il est connecté) et vocales (lorsqu'il est simplement utilisé pour des appels téléphoniques). L'AMRC, CDPD ou d'autres technologies sans fil peuvent être employés pour la connexion à l'Internet.
