Research and Markets Adds Report: Wi-Fi Direct Solutions and Applications [Health & Beauty Close - Up]

(Health & Beauty Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Wi-Fi Direct Solutions and Applications" report to its offerings.

In a release, Research and Markets noted that report highlights include: WiFi 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. When two devices get within close range of each other the users can merely push a button which will allow 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.
