Research and Markets: Wi-Fi Direct Solutions and Applications
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wtbjfn/wifi_direct)
has announced the addition of the "Wi-Fi
Direct Solutions and Applications" report to their offering.
WiFi (News - Alert) Direct allows devices to communicate directly with each other using
methods similar to traditional WiFi without the reliance upon a central
access point. Instead, the devices use a "Software Access Point (News - Alert)" (Soft
AP). When two devices get within close range of each other the users can
merely push a button which will allw the devices to communicate
directly with one another and negotiate which device will act as the
access point rather than using a central access point.
This research evaluates several WiFi Direct use cases for various
application types. The most often envisioned application type,
person-to-person, represents end-users sharing data/content such as
transferring photographs from one user to the other. However, there are
other key application types analyzed in this report.
In the person-to-device application type, the user will communicate with
another WiFi Direct capable device for communications such as printing a
file on their smartphone to the target device. In the reverse direction
the device, a Blu-Ray player, will communicate with the user by
'pushing' the video to the user's tablet device.
Our research also examines public (as opposed to privately controlled)
use cases and application types. In a public application scenario, for
example, the end-user will communicate with a public movie kiosk to
download a movie to their smartphone. Conversely, the public device may
'push' data to smartphones in the vicinity.
