    enabling communication with the mobile or portable device over a second communication path that is at least in part not co-extensive with said first communication path;

    communicating signals representing at least a first portion of a node structure over said first communication path;

    communicating signals representing at least a second portion of said node structure over said second communication path; and

    using said signals sent over said first path and said signals sent over said second path to increase the likelihood of successful communication of said node structure, including reconciling redundant information conveyed over said first and second communication paths.
