There will be four deliverables in this project. They are listed as follows: • A Mobile Peer Group Service Platform This deliverable is a software development platform. The most significant layer of this platform is the technology framework that enables mobile, peer-group-based services. Such service applications will be built on this platform. • Peer-group based applications Prototypical applications will be built to showcase the functionalities of the MPG Service Platform. The applications to be built will demonstrate a mobile peer group for off-line social networking, sharing of Internet access resource among a wireless LAN peer group. We will also analyze the performance issues of media delivery applications within a wireless LAN peer group. • Explore business relationships with potential partners We will explore the business opportunities with service providers and enterprises that can benefit from this technology. This relationship may be in the present licensing model or in the Enterprise and Consumer Electronics (ECE) Domain’s upcoming application partnership model, in which ECE offers the source code of the platform to vendors to build innovative applications. • Patent application For the patent application, there are many potential topics in this area. The area that we will file patent would likely be a virtual resource framework for mobile and stationary peer pairing.
