Peer-to-Peer technology is gaining momentum as consumers start to realize the advantages of keeping their data off the networks and the advantage of interacting instantly. We’ve seen several demo’s using the AllJoyn technology, practical business demos with AliPay as well. Today we got to check out an app that will let you trade virtual currency, the lazy suzan that you use to pass over the virtual collectable really shows off how the two units are seamlessly synched.
AllJoyn is a software framework that enables easy Peer-to-Peer access, developers are now able to integrate this code provided by Qualcomm rather then build functionality from scratch. If you’re looking to create a real life network off the network AllJoyn allows you to access others devices using Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
Why this technology is worth keeping an eye on it that it solves issues of discovery, pairing, security, protocol allowing the devices in the room to talk to each other. We got to check out what apps they’ve been working on since MWC one of the apps that we weren’t able to shoot a video of was jukebox which creates a constant link between devices that enables streaming support.
