Spread of PC networks cause development of home networks with an increase in users of information superhighway and expansion of Internet information systems. The development of home networks should meet user requirements such as easy installation and management for networks, and multimedia services. To do this, many researches have been conducted on home network technologies like connections between middleware components and establishment of wire/wireless networks and gateways for connecting Internet and home networks. Especially the connection between middleware components among these technologies is very important to build home networks automatically and easily.
This paper proposes a gateway for multimedia streaming services on integrated networks of HAVi and UPnP, which are different middleware components. HAVi is a standard core specification for networking digital AV appliances to communicate with each other, while UPnP is a standard specification for connecting intelligent appliances, wireless devices, and PCs that are in close proximity. To show the adequacy of the gateway, this paper explains the scenario of multimedia streaming services between two networks through the gateway, and implement core part of the gateway.
