  • establishing a communication link through a short-range wireless technology between the stationary terminal and a proximate mobile device wherein the proximate mobile device operates within a cellular wireless network system;

    transmitting, by the stationary terminal, an invitation message comprising a network address relating to the stationary terminal and a remote device identifier to the proximate mobile device through the established communication link, whereupon the proximate mobile device establishes communication with the remote device using the remote device identifier and provides the network address of the stationary terminal to the remote device; and

    establishing a connection between the stationary terminal and the remote device for data communications based upon an initial communication by the remote device through use of the network address of the stationary terminal provided to the remote device by the proximate mobile device.
