What has been done to ensure that Wi-Fi Direct is suitable for enterprise environments?
Wi-Fi Direct-certified devices will be identifiable as Wi-Fi Direct-certified devices to infrastructure access points. APs can prevent devices currently using Wi-Fi Direct from connecting to the AP, or disconnect them if already connected, while Wi-Fi Direct is in use and/or configure their parameters including channel. The technology behind the Wi-Fi Direct certification program will be important for enterprise environments, enabling applications such as file transfer, printing, and display in the absence of a suitable WLAN. We also expect that the specification will be used in enterprises to temporarily connect mobile data terminals and other portable devices for short-term tasks such as data transfer.
