Flip my Wi-Fi

SF WiFi is tackling one of the most exciting aspects in data communication – flipping the wireless network. We are helping clients make the transformation from the eyesore of legacy wireless gear into an efficient, feature rich wireless system.

SF WiFi boasts a team of characters that renovates Hospitality, SMB, SME and hotspot wireless in record time. It sounds simple, but sparks fly (not really) and tempers are high (legacy resellers) before the fixer-uppers are ready to go back online.

Will “Flip my WiFi” get picked up by a major cable TV channel? That’s doubtful. But if it does you can expect to watch it on a wireless IPTV. In HD!

Device to Device Wi-Fi

The Wi-Fi Alliance plans a new specification “Wi-Fi Direct” to support device-to-device connections over same range and as same speed as Wi-Fi, but without a hotspot or access point. Security features built into the Wi-Fi Direct specification will prevent peer-to-peer devices from compromising corporate networks.

The specification can be implemented in any Wi-Fi device, from mobile phones, cameras, printers, and notebook computers, to human interface devices such as keyboards and headphones.
