It seems like CES was not a complete failure after all. The Wi-Fi Alliance presented Wi-Fi Aware, a new set of features that I think it can empower the IoT concept that is making everybody drool:
“Wi-Fi Aware is an exciting new capability of Wi-Fi which enables power-efficient discovery of nearby information and services before making a connection. Wi-Fi Aware will make it easy to find services available in the area that match preferences set by the user – and is optimized to work well even in crowded environments. Wi-Fi Aware will be a key enabler of a personalized social, local, and mobile experience, enabling users to find video gaming opponents, share media content, and access localized information all before establishing a connection.”
