In recent times, Wi-Fi Direct has been making news as an improved standard than the traditional Wi-Fi. How the Wi-Fi Direct is different from traditional Wi-Fi?
1. Wi-Fi Direct does not need a wireless access point
2. Wi-Fi Direct, compatible devices can connect directly by generating their own wireless network
Choose the correct option from the codes given below:

Answer: [C] Both 1 & 2

To connect two devices wirelessly, you would typically require a Wi-Fi setup in which a router broadcasts a network and your devices – be it a PC, phone, laptop, netbook, or TV – all connect to the router. The router in turn, acts as starting point, enabling connected devices to communicate with each other. Opposed to this conventional way, with Wi-Fi Direct, compatible devices can connect directly by generating their own wireless network. While most devices across gadget categories (TV, Printers, etc.) have Wi-Fi connectivity in-built as an option, moving forward, Wi-Fi Direct will be the easiest way to share data. Devices like Samsung’s Galaxy S/ SII and LG Optimus Black P970 and even printers that can work with Wi-Fi Direct are available in the market.
