To deliver services using wireless connectivity on mobile devices, service discovery with low power and service execution with fast connection are the essential factors. However, no single connectivity technology satisfies fast service execution with low power discovery because agile service delivery fundamentally requires consuming high power. Therefore, we propose a synergetic multi-connectivity strategy utilizing Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) discovery and Wi-Fi Peer to Peer (P2P) fast connection for agile service delivery. Furthermore, we develop an adaptive BLE discovery algorithm to enhance the discovery performance. Finally, the experiment of the multi-connectivity scheme and the theoretical simulation of the discovery algorithm show that the proposed approach excellently provides the fast service delivery with low power discovery.
