4.4 Aggregated systems ToC Previous Next

In systems where many simple devices exist, any given simple device might not have the ability to provide name resolution, yet these systems can be much like systems in one of the previous use cases. In a system such as this an aggregating Server might exist, where the aggregating Server would provide the names as well as the lookup for the underlying Server. This aggregating Server might also provide other functionality such as aggregation of values, but it might only provide the name definitions and resolutions. The underlying Server might have no knowledge of the name.
