LTE Direct offers a compelling solution for proximate discovery. As a distributed, device-based system of discovery, it mitigates consumer adoption costs on behalf of application providers, and provides significant new levels of utility. LTE Direct thus enables proximate discovery to cross the chasm to scalable, mainstream consumer adoption. By doing so, it extends its value to a long tail of app developers that would otherwise be shut out, and provides a vehicle for internet leaders to define interaction frameworks of the future.
