Qualcomm Announces New Peer-to-Peer Technology Framework

The open source project enables ad-hoc, proximity-based connectivity without intermediary server

Qualcomm Innovation Center (QuIC), the mobile open source software development division of Qualcomm has launched AllJoyn, a new open source project that delves into peer-to-peer (P2P) device connectivity over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth without needing a 3G network or Wi-Fi Internet access point . The project aims at improving the way devices interact with one another by addressing prevalent complexities in this space relating to transparent device and service discovery, networking functionality and message routing . It provides a security framework for encrypted and authenticated communications and enhances user experience through easy discovery among devices, simplified group formation and low latency. Using the AllJoyn SDK that can be downloaded here, developers can integrate the P2P functionality with their apps and services. QuIC sees strong scope for implementation in areas such as peer-to-peer gaming, secure file sharing, set-top boxes and in-vehicle infotainment.
