Information provision and utilization have become stringent application fields in information service systems like the Internet. Even though computing and telecommunications technologies are continuously improving, critical business applications foster an urgent need for high-assurance in information service systems. One solution has been proposed in the form of a distributed service replica network sustained by push/pull mobile agents, and called faded information field (FIF). In this system, user requests are autonomously driven by Pull-MA in charge of finding the relevant service. In the case of a mono-service request, the system is designed to satisfy heterogeneous requirements of both user and service provider. Under complex multi-service requests, users require that the heterogeneous services be available simultaneously to synchronize their actions. However, SPs have heterogeneous requirements for consistency and reliability that limit their distribution expansion. It is necessary to alleviate user transaction time when accessing various services. To solve this problem, this paper first proposes an autonomous integration mechanism of heterogeneous FIFs on the basis of correlation conditions. Next, optimization of the synergetic effect is realized through a heterogeneous information fading technique. The effectiveness of integrated services is then shown by simulation.
