Recent wireless LAN technologies and service management technologies have produced widely diverse network services with no configuration task or effort for end-users' consumer electronics (CE) devices. This environment needs a mechanism that enables end-users to access services seamlessly across separated networks. To provide such accessibility, information for services in multiple networks should be available in each terminal that is currently connected to a wireless LAN. This paper presents a proposal of a new mechanism to collect and manage service information belonging to different WLANs autonomously for end-users. Specifically, an autonomous network switch and event-driven service information sharing scheme are proposed. The functionalities which are embedded on end-user CE devices require no central control device on a WLAN or the internet and require no modification of WLAN access points. The effectiveness of the proposal is demonstrated using simulation experiments. Future work is described.
