Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0148977A2] Device and method for communicating between a plurality of devices. A communication device is partitioned into various units, each performing a function of the communication device. A subnet is established for the units, the units including a master device acting as the master of the subnet and performing an exclusive master function and a plurality of slave devices acting as the slaves of the subnet and performing other functions of the communication device. The master device negotiates with the slave devices and intelligently routes a message to the slave devices having capability to process the message. In one embodiment, the message is from an external network. In one embodiment, the message is from a slave device in the subnet. The same protocol is used for communicating with the master device. In one embodiment, the master device communicates with a slave device via a wireless communication path such as radio frequency and InfraRed. The external network is an established network, such as an internet, a mobile unit, a voice network, or another subnet.
