Qualcomm Launches AllJoyn Project

SAN DIEGO -- Qualcomm Innovation Center, Inc. (QuIC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), today announced the launch of the AllJoyn™ open source project, which is a peer-to-peer technology framework that enables ad-hoc, proximity-based, device-to-device communication without the use of an intermediary server. AllJoyn is designed to easily allow developers to create apps and services that leverage P2P connectivity, which can be established using any short-range radio link such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth™, on any AllJoyn-enabled device without the need for a 3G network or Wi-Fi Internet access point.

AllJoyn is designed to solve many of the complexities that currently exist in the peer-to-peer space; for example, the technology addresses transparent device and service discovery, networking functionality, message routing and also provides a security framework for encrypted and authenticated communications. By simplifying how devices connect and interact, AllJoyn allows for a superior user experience with easy discovery among devices, simplified group formation and low latency, regardless of how the wireless connection is established.
