A look at Multipeer Connectivity in iOS 7



By

An interesting article from Mike Elgan at Cult of Mac on a specific peer-to-peer framework in iOS 7. The technology is called Multipeer Connectivity Framework
it can enable two users to chat not only without an Internet connection, but also when they are far beyond WiFi and Bluetooth range from each other — connected with a chain of peer-to-peer users between one user and a far-away Internet connection.


It’s called wireless mesh networking. And Apple has mainstreamed it in iOS 7. It’s going to change everything. Here’s why.

It can also extend an Internet connect to a place where none exists — for example, to a hotel basement, cave or to rural areas where cell tower connections are non-existent.

According to Apple the framework can operate either through a WiFi or as peer-to-peer via WiFi and Bluetooth. Peer-to-Peer connections is an interesting new area for mobile. As stated, it can allow users to easily connect even if there is not network service available.
