    [0049] FIG. 1 illustrates a network environment 100 including an electronic device 101 according to an embodiment of the present disclosure.

    [0050] Referring to FIG. 1, the electronic device 101 may include a bus 110, a processor 120, a memory 130, an input/output interface 140, a display 150, a communication interface 160, and a communication control module 170.

    [0051] The bus 110 may be a circuit connecting the above described components and transmitting communication data/signal/message (for example, a control message) between the above described components.

    [0052] The processor 120 may receive a command from other components (for example, the memory 130, the input/output interface 140, the display 150, the communication interface 160, or the communication control module 170) through the bus 110, analyze the received command, and perform calculation or data processing according to the analyzed command.

    [0053] The memory 130 may store commands or data received from or generated by the processor 120 or other components (for example, the input/output interface 140, the display 150, the communication interface 160, or the communication control module 170). The memory 130 may include programming modules such as, for example, a kernel 131, middleware 132, an Application Programming Interface (API) 133, or an application 134. Each of the programming modules described above may be configured by software, firmware, hardware, or a combination of two or more thereof.

    [0054] The kernel 131 may control or manage system resources (for example, the bus 110, the processor 120, the memory 130, and/or the like) which are used for performing operations or functions implemented by other programming modules, for example, the middleware 132, the API 133 or the application 134. Further, the kernel 131 may provide interfaces by which the middleware 132, the API 133 or the application 134 may access each component of the electronic device 101 to control or manage them.

    [0055] The middleware 132 may play an intermediate role between the API 133 or the application 134 and the kernel 131 to communicate with each other for transmission and reception of data. Further, in relation to requests for an operation received from the application 134, the middleware 132 may control (for example, scheduling or load-balancing) the requests for the operation by using, for example, a method of determining sequence for using system resources (for example, the bus 110, the processor 120, the memory 130, or the like) of the electronic device 101 with respect to at least one application among the application 134.

    [0056] The API 133 is an interface by which the application 134 controls functions provided from the kernel 131 or the middleware 132, and may include, for example, at least one interface or function (for example, instructions) for file control, window control, image processing, or text control.

    [0057] According to various embodiments, the application 134 may include a Short Message Service (SMS)/Multimedia Message Service (MMS) application, an e-mail application, a calendar application, an alarm application, a health care application (for example, an application for measuring an amount of exercise or blood sugar level), an environmental information application (for example, an application for providing atmospheric pressure, humidity, or temperature), or the like. Additionally or alternatively, the application 134 may be an application related to the exchange of information between the electronic device 101 and external electronic devices (for example, an electronic device 104). The application related to the information exchange may include, for example, a notification relay application for transmitting specific information to the external electronic device, or a device management application for managing the external electronic device.

    [0058] For example, the notification relay application may include a function of transferring notification information generated in other applications (for example, the SMS/MMS application, the e-mail application, the health care application, or the environmental information application) of the electronic device 101 to external electronic devices (for example, an electronic device 104). Additionally or alternatively, the notification relay application may receive notification information from, for example, external electronic devices (for example, the electronic device 104) and provide the same to a user. The device management application may manage (for example, install, delete, or update) at least some functions (for example, turning external electronic device (or some elements) on or off, or adjusting a brightness (or resolution) of a display) of an external electronic device (for example, the electronic device 104) that communicates with the electronic device 101, applications performed in the external electronic device, or services (for example, a telephone service, or a messaging service) provided in the external electronic device.

    [0059] According to various embodiments, the application 134 may include applications, which are designated according to the property (for example, the type of electronic device) of the external electronic device (for example, the electronic device 104). For example, when the external electronic device is an MP3 player, the application 134 may include an application related to reproduction of music. Similarly, when the external electronic device is a mobile medical device, the application 134 may include an application related to health care. According to an embodiment, the application 134 may include at least one of an application designated for the electronic device 101 or an application received from external electronic devices (for example, a server 106, or an electronic device 104).

    [0060] The input/output interface 140 may transmit a command or data input from the user through an input/output device (for example, a sensor, keyboard, or a touch screen) to the processor 120, the memory 130, the communication interface 160, or the communication control module 170 through, for example, the bus 110. For example, the input/output interface 140 may provide the processor 120 with data for a user's touch which is input through the touch screen. Further, through the input/output device (for example, a speaker or a display), the input/output interface 140 may output commands or data received from the processor 120, the memory 130, the communication interface 160, or the communication control module 170 through the bus 110. For example, the input/output interface 140 may output voice data processed through the processor 120 to the user through the speaker.

    [0061] The display 150 may display various pieces of information (for example, multimedia data or text data) for the user.

    [0062] The communication interface 160 may make a communication connection between the electronic device 101 and external electronic devices (for example, the electronic device 104 or a server 106). For example, the communication interface 160 may be connected with a network 162 through wireless communication or wired communication to communicate with the external electronic device. The wireless communication may include at least one of WiFi, WiFi Direct, BLUETOOTH (BT), BLUETOOTH Low Energy (BLE), Near Field Communication (NFC), a Global Positioning System (GPS), or cellular communication (for example, Long Term Evolution (LTE), LTE-Advanced (LTE-A), Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA), Wideband CDMA (WCDMA), Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS), Wireless Broadband (WiBro), or Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM)). The wired communication may include at least one of, for example, a Universal Serial Bus (USB), a High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), Recommended Standard 232 (RS-232), and Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS).

    [0063] According to an embodiment, the network 162 may be a communication network. The communication network may include at least one of a computer network, the Internet, the Internet of things, or a telephone network. According to an embodiment, protocols (for example, a transport layer protocol, a data link layer protocol, or a physical layer protocol) for communication between the electronic device 101 and external electronic devices may be supported by at least one of the application 134, the API 133, the middleware 132, the kernel 131, and the communication interface 160.

    [0064] According to an embodiment, the communication control module 170 may support driving of the electronic device 101 by conducting at least one of operations or functions implemented by the electronic device 101. For example, the server 106 may include a communication control server module 108 capable of supporting the communication control module 170 implemented in the electronic device 101. For example, the communication control server module 108 may include at least one component of the communication control module 170, and may perform (for example, perform as a proxy) at least one of the operations performed by the communication control module 170.

    [0065] The communication control module 170 may process at least some of the information obtained from other components (for example, the processor 120, the memory 130, the input/output interface 140, or the communication interface 160) and utilize the same in various manners. For example, the communication control module 170 may control at least some functions of the electronic device 101 by using the processor 120 or independently from the processor 120 so that the electronic device 101 may interwork with other electronic devices (for example, the electronic device 104 or the server 106). The communication control module 170 may be integrated into the processor 120. According to an embodiment, at least one component of the communication control module 170 may be included in the server 106 (for example, the communication control server module 108) and receive at least one operation, which is performed by the communication control module 170, from the server 106. Additional information on the communication control module 170 is provided through FIG. 2 described below.

    [0066] FIG. 2 is a block diagram 200 of the communication control module 170 of the electronic device (for example, electronic device 101) according to an embodiment of the present disclosure. In the present embodiment, the electronic device corresponds to a first electronic device, a communication counterpart of the first electronic device corresponds to a third electronic device, and a device including a second communication module, which the first electronic devices desires to use for communication with the third electronic device, corresponds to a second electronic device.

    [0067] Referring to FIG. 2, the communication control module 170 may include a signal determination module 210 and a signal control module 220.

    [0068] The signal determination module 210 may designate (or select) at least one of a first communication module (for example, the communication interface 160) of the first electronic device and a second communication module of the second electronic device for communication with the third electronic device. The signal determination module 210 may determine which one of the first and second communication modules will receive a first message. The first message may be an internal message of the electronic device including a signal for providing a call service, a message service, a multimedia service, or the like. The first message may include receiver information (for example, a phone number of the third electronic device or an identification for identifying the third electronic device) and/or sender information (for example, a phone number of the first electronic device or an identification for identifying the first electronic device).

    [0069] The signal determination module 210 may determine which one of the first and second communication modules will receive the first message by using communication related information. The communication related information may include at least one of setting information of the first electronic device, a type of communication signal, a location or a type of Subscriber Identity Module (SIM), a connection state with an external electronic device, a user input, a power state, a charging state, a network state, and a phone plan.

    [0070] When the first communication module is designated, the signal determination module 210 may transmit the first message to the first communication module. The first communication module may communicate with the third electronic device by using at least some of information included in the first message.

    [0071] When the second communication module is designated, the signal determination module 210 may transmit the first message to the signal control module 220. The signal control module 220 may re-configure the first message and transmit the re-configured first message to the first communication module, and the first communication module may transmit the re-configured message to the second electronic device. Re-configuring the first message may include converting the first message into a message having a configuration (for example, a format, type, protocol, or the like) which can be analyzed by the second communication module.

    [0072] The signal control module 220 may receive the first message from the signal determination module 210 and determine a connection scheme between the first and second electronic devices. The signal control module 220 may generate a second message by at least partially re-configuring the first message as a configuration which can be analyzed by the second communication module and correspond to the determined connection scheme. The signal control module 220 may transmit the second message to the first communication module. The first communication module may transmit the second message to the second electronic device. For example, the connection scheme may be a short-range connection scheme, such as BT, WiFi, BLE, NFC, ZigBee, or the like.
