  • Presents proximity awareness as the ability to actively/passively and continuously search for relevant value in one’s physical proximity
  • Covers D2D communications technologies in unlicensed (WiFi Direct) as well as licensed (LTE Direct) spectrums
  • Gives a unified architecture, including D2D communications technologies, networking layer, topological layer, middle framework (AllJoyn) and application layer
  • Analyzes fundamental problems in D2D-based proximity service from both application and interdisciplinary viewpoints
  • Introduces typical and hot applications of D2D networking architecture


D2D-based proximity service is a very hot topic with great commercial potential from an application standpoint. Unlike existing books which focus on D2D communications technologies, this book fills a gap by summarizing and analyzing the latest applications and research results in academic, industrial fields, and standardization. The authors present the architecture, fundamental issues, and applications in a D2D networking environment from both application and interdisciplinary points of view.
