Actiontec released a new whitepaper recently, this one giving a detailed overview of Wi-Fi Direct. Titled “An Industry Look at Wi-Fi Direct,” the paper covers the salient points of the new standard from a perspective of the telecom industry, including applications and a market update. Wi-Fi Direct, for the uninitiated, allows devices to connect to one another directly without having to join a traditional network, and should be available as a software upgrade on Wi-Fi hardware devices. We recommend this whitepaper to anybody who needs to come up to speed quickly on the basics of Wi-Fi Direct.
