Industry-driven advances for Wi-Fi Direct®

Fifteen years ago, a group of visionary companies came together with one simple goal: to make wireless networking technology simple and accessible – regardless of brand. And Wi-Fi Alliance’s recent enhancements to Wi-Fi Direct® are a perfect example of how that objective rings true today.  

Built on the existing Wi-Fi Direct platform, these industry-driven advances (such as one-click print and send from any device) will allow consumers to “discover, connect and do” in a single step. The overall Wi-Fi® experience is streamlined, letting users focus on what they want to do, rather than connecting to what lets them do it. As the smart home becomes an ever-present part of our lives, this one-touch experience will let us connect and forget, saving countless hours of frustration and downtime.
