WiFi Direct: Device to Device Connectivity

More than 5 years ago, when Wifi became popular at offices, home uses, alot of people felt a basic feature left missing. Device to device (P2P) wireless communication without the need of a wireless router in-between, just like how bluetooth works: a sort of mesh network without the need to switch to AdHoc connection mode.

The Wi-Fi Alliance announced it has almost completed the standard which could make these a reality: Wi-Fi Direct.

Wi-Fi Direct was known as “Wi-Fi Peer-to-Peer,” and has been termed to in IEEE meetings and consumer forums as a  Bluetooth Killer. Using this new Wireless standard, direct connections between computers, and gadgets: phones, cameras,  keyboards, and future classes of components are established over Wi-Fi instead of another wireless technology governed by a separate standard.
