This paper presents au approach to extend OSGi server based home networks with JXTA?s peer-to- peer (PZP) technoIogy to a mzdti-server home environment connecting multiple private home networks to one true virtual environment for communication, media sharing/exchange, and distributed device control. We elaborate on the basic integration methodology and extend it to a general, security preserving, architectural concept based on a two level integration concept for inhome and interhome networks. The integration is achieved through additional OSGi services for the management of virtual devices, peer- to-peer communication, and authentication. The example of a Quality of Service based video streaming management demonstrates one of the potential advanced application for which peer-to-peer can be used in addition.
